This does not answer my question! When I go to his address, it shows me other things, but not how to download ESL on my mac! This is frustrating! I have a brand new mac. Can I use Keynote, or does it have to be powerpoint whatever the version is? My version is 2007, and it should open with that, according to what I have read about PPTX.

Thanks so much, if you have one answer its more than I have.
1. How long to ELL students stay in your school, what level or grade to they enter?
2. What program models does your school/or you use?
3. Are teachers trained and/or certified to work with ELL students?
4. How are students assessed to move on to the next level?
5. With the model used it is the best for the students or do you have to add/substract to get the lesson accross?

I hope this makes sense to you thanks so much

I taught at College of the Desert, Palm Desert, CA... see above link for ESL programs.

1)we accepted non english speaking persons of any age or educational level.
2) don't know what model the school used, ask them.
3)some teachers may have been certified ESL/ELL, most of us were just holders of Master's in many different fields, and backgrounds.
4)Each teacher or level had their own "compentency test" for entry and exit.
5)most teachers adapted their lessons to fit the individual needs, with additional instruction, Lab work or by repeating levels
*I specialized in begining English, "kindergarten" as we called it. My students came from various countries and backgrounds, mostly newly immagrated Latinos, many were mothers wanting to improve their English skills to help their children in school.

ELL in My Heart
ELL in My Heart  (TpT Seller) re: ESL: THE BEGINNING LEVEL ADULT PROGRAM
Hello Vince. I am working on getting some ESL materials together for new teachers. I hold an MA in TESOL. I taught all levels for 8 years. I would love to get my work on TPT eventually. My endeavor has been a work in progress for years now.

The more visual I can convey my concepts and package that to teachers the better they will benefit and their students. I came across your product. It looks very interesting. Is there anyway I can get a sample of how you put this together? When I saw that you produced this as a power point presentation, the first thing that came to mind was.... how can one do this and sell it? I guess this not any kind of copyright violation! Can you elaborate on this for me? Thanks. Ramona

install Power Point, part of Office software, build a presentation, place competed file on TPT and set a price. I based my presentation on my personal experience of 12 years of teaching ESL

Thanks for your response. I am currently building a website/online school. The address is www.universalhomeschool.com/custom. It will not be live for another 6 – 8 months because there is so much work to be done. I am currently trying to build up material including videos, lessons, worksheets, presentations and more. A lot of this material is being created by myself. I hope that the site will be successful in providing students with a vast resource of information that will help them become more successful. Any material that I use that was not created by myself I will make sure credit has been given to the author. Let me know what you think, if you don’t mind me using your work, either way is fine. If you have any suggestions for me I would also appreciate that. Thanks for taking the time.

Good Luck, use anything of mine that you like. Most of it is Public Domain, watch out for some of the music I used, may require further licensing. Let me know if I can help in anyway, let me know when you are up and running. vkonicek@centurytel.net

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 50 years of experience! I have taught all levels, all ethnic backgrounds, all intellectual capabilities and physical capacities. I pioneered in individualized instruction, team teaching, group processing, networking, Glasser, Gestalt and General attempts at improving teaching techniques. I am available for individual questions or problem solving. Sometimes you just can't seem to find the right answer for a particular student, let me help you brain storm. Give me the particulars of your problem or desired outcome, and I will furninsh you with ideas and resources to help you reach a desired outcome. I have a M.A. in Educational Psychology from the University of California in Riverside, under the direction of the eminent Dr. Harry Singer. I specialize in Reading Instruction with a minor in Special Education. I have continuing credits and experience in Administration, Testing, Resource Teaching, ESL and Continuing Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am an eclectic and pragmatic teacher. I take from everyone and everywhere and adapt it to my personality and teaching style. I believe than anyone can learn, giving them respect as an individual and for the progess they have made. It's not how well I teach, but how much I can help my students learn. I also believe that anyone can teach; we learn something from everyone we are exposed to and become a better person from all our acquaintences , whether they be good or bad experiences. I don't know everything, but I do know how to find anything!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

None worth mentioning since it was my students that 'shined' and learned. They deserve the credit for trying and progressing.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

From humble beginings in parochial schools to the world of hard knocks. A mediocore student to a avid learner. I completed my undergraduate work and my B of E after interrupting it with three years in Military Service. I taught for a time and came to the realization that I was a lousy teacher. From the Institute for Teachers of the Disadvantaged (that's what they called the underprivileged inner city shcools in the 60's) led by Dick Larsen and Marty Haberman, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, I learned how biased and prejudiced I was. From "Teaching As A Subversive Activity" to a Master's Degree in Educational Pshycology, I finally became a Special Educator. In California I pursued a career as an Educator of Special Needs Students: any age, any level, any persausion. From physically disabled children to incarcerated adults, from mentally challenged to gifted individuals, from emotionally disturbed to hospitalized inmates, from babies to adults, from immigrants to college students. I enjoyed the opportunity to help individuals learn and prosper. When my patience wore out, I retired to my horses and reading. I continue to this day studying teaching methods, exploring new techniques and learning from my students.
