My students are some of the most hardworking, curious, and determined students you will meet. Many of my students come from places like Mexico, El Salvador, and Guatemala, while others come from Afghanistan, Vietnam, and China.
These students come to me with little to no English, and by the end of the year feel confident talking about topics such as food, health, and current events in English.
My students are people who do not know what the word quit means, and they are not familiar with the phrase, "cannot do." All they know is "Do your best".
I teach students the English language and it has been difficult to do so with a agreed upon curriculum. Many of the teachers have reached out and found bits and pieces of things that may work.
Through talking with other teachers, this text was suggested as a way to provide and understand a framework that best suits the needs of my students currently, and for the future.
Routledge.com explains that "book proposes Meaning-order Approach to Pedagogical Grammar (MAP Grammar) as a practical pedagogical approach in ESL and EFL contexts. The meaning-based sentence structure allows teachers to address global errors, and learners to produce comprehensible English."
