TO: PROFESSOR ?????
FROM: MICHAEL JOHN BUCKHOFF, AMERICAN CULTURE AND LANGUAGE
PROGRAM (ACLP) INSTRUCTOR
DATE: APRIL 4
SUBJECT: INTERNSHIP FOR ENGLISH 662--LINDA
This is to confirm that Linda Abidin will
be doing her English 662 internship in one of my classes in the ACLP. At
present, we have agreed that she will intern in the following class:
1200-1350 TTH PL 39
During this class, I am planning to have Linda develop
techniques and strategies of teaching ESL in several different ways:
1). Working with students as an assistant teacher with the
goal of acting as a facilitator and a guide in second language acquisition,
Linda will help ensure that all students are participants in every class and
that no students dominates or is uninvolved.
2). Linda will teach at least one class on a TOEFL topic of
her choice (listening comprehension, structure and written expression, or
vocabulary and reading comprehension). The lesson plan will be submitted to me
in advance in order to insure appropriate topic choice. She also will assign
and grade homework.
3). I plan to have at least three conferences with Linda to
help her understand the goals of teaching an ESL TOEFL class in the ACLP.
During these conferences, I will explain the Instructor’s Handbook from the
ACLP at CSUSB as it applies to the teaching of the Level three TOEFL class.
I expect Linda to attend Tuesday and Thursday classes. She may
choose not to come to class every second Thursday as I will administer a TOEFL
practice test during the entire class.
