Abstract

This project is an English as a Second Language Program designed for a small elementary school class in a bilingual French-American school.

The first part of the project includes a description of the school environment and an examination of my personal as­ sumptions about learning and teaching. This examination takes the form of objectives which I set for myself and my students in order to clarify my priorities and determine what I wanted to accomplish as a teacher.

The second part of the project includes my ESL syllabus, as well as weekly and daily lesson plans. The weekly and daily lesson plans demonstrate my approach --or the "how'' of my teaching. These plans also reflect how my assumptions and beliefs are put into practice in the classroom situation. The project in its entirety is meant to meet the needs of the given ESL students and teacher.
