Abstract

This project describes a form of computer-assisted interactive classroom instruction, which is particularly useful in the ESL context. Not only does this project show how to integrate instruction with ever advancing technology, it also demonstrates how to integrate interactive class work with the diverse and relevant learning styles of each learner in the classroom. This project will show how easy it is to use this technology in conjunction with thematic units or projects-whatever the level of the ESL student. Enclosed are examples of instructional materials, created for the ESL High Beginner and examples of how they relate to the paper and pen tests given in class. Also included are examples of the quarter-schedules events to show how I integrated this mode of instruction into my planning. A PowerPoint presentation given at a Sandanona Conference, School for International Training. at Brattleboro, Vermont, summer 1999, concludes this project.
