The ESOL Literacy Resource Pack by Lisa Karlsen is a comprehensive pack of teaching and learning materials for students with zero or very low levels of English literacy. It includes learning materials; a detailed teacher’s guide; a teacher’s record of student’s work; a student‘s record of achievement.
The 13 units of materials enable students to develop their reading and writing from a complete beginner starting point. The language used is basic and reflects language used in beginner level classroom e.g. present simple tenses; common frequency vocabulary.
It uses a multi-sensory approach. Students develop strategies to learn spelling, and opportunities for ‘language experience’ are built into each unit. Study skills are systematically developed, as are handwriting, punctuation and use of capital letters.
