This book is carefully designed to inform and train readers in the techniques of content-based ESL instruction and to assist them in developing and implementing content-based materials and programs appropriate to their educational institutions and situations. Every chapter presents a balance of theory and practice, focusing on a detailed description, with clear examples of classroom practices including information, suggestions, and instructional tools. Each chapter addresses assessment issues as they apply to the particular methodology described.The comprehension exercises require students to write a sentence or two to answer questions on the reading. ... that I have classroom tested and found to work well as a link to content in a lower level ESL course is There Will Come Soft Rains.
