Description

New teachers often experience "reality shock" as they discover that the ideals they learned in college do not match the daily realities of classroom life-especially when they are called upon to begin their careers by working with English language learners in English as a second language (ESL) or English as a foreign language (EFL) settings. By combining best practices for teacher induction, mentoring, and support with carefully phased-in coverage of the basics of ESL/EFL lesson planning, classroom management, writing, reading, grammar, speaking, listening, vocabulary, and language assessment, this new book offers beginning teachers the reality guide they need. With 104 Exploratory Breaks throughout to provide topics for reflection and discussion with mentors, supervisors, and support providers, this guide will be of interest to any teacher new to working with ESL and EFL learners.
