Using Multicultural Children's Literature in Adult ESL Classes. ERIC Digest


This digest focuses on the use of children's literature in adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction. Because high quality children's literature is characterized by an economy of words, stunning illustrations, captivating and quickly moving plots, and universal themes, carefully chosen books can offer educational benefits for adult ESL learners. Separate sections of the digest highlight the following: book selection criteria, literature-based teaching strategies, and extension activities. Also included is an annotated book list for five English proficiency levels. (Author/JL)
