Knowing Your Literacy Students: Curriculum Guidelines and a Cultural Manual (2007)

A Resource Manual for ESL and Literacy Instructors Working with Low-Literate Learners

This manual, which grew out of a project carried out by the Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association, is a resource for literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) instructors working with learners who have low literacy skills.

The manual includes curriculum guidelines, lesson plans and activities organized into units based on themes like families, home, using public transportation and making an appointment.

The author has also included a section on how culture influences learning. An appendix contains brief guides to the history and culture of eight countries: Afghanistan, Burma/Myanmar, Colombia, Eritrea, Iran, Pakistan, Somalia and Sudan.
