Information for ESL and PCC Faculty

Independent Learning plans for your ESL students

The mission of the ESL Center is to complement your class curriculum. When sending your students to the ESL Center, please make sure they have a clear idea of what you'd like them to do. Please direct your students to the ESL Center Portfolio sheets. Students use these to record ESL Center activities. ESL instructors may choose to require students submit their self-assessment at the middle and/or end of each semester a sample gradesheet is available for you to adapt.


Films to assign or use in your classrooms

If you would like to borrow a DVD to review at home or use in your classrooms, PCC ESL faculty can check out a DVD and take it home for up to 3 days. Here is a comprehensive list of films containing links to student materials and teacher lesson plans for certain films, you can download the Movie List for Faculty. If you would like to bring your class to view the film in the ESL Center, please check the room schedule.

Also, the ESL Center relies on faculty participation. If you have an idea for a workshop, a suggestion for future acquisitions to the collection, suggestions on which textbooks work with the current offering of DVDs or if you have created lesson plans to share with current materials in the ESL Center, please let one of the ESL Center committee members know.
