I just got hired on to teach ESL to newcomers at the highschool. I haven't even had a chance to look at the curriculum yet.
Classes start on the 21 of August. I would like to start planning now, but can't get hold of the materials.
My questions are these:
What should I expect?
How can I prepare myself for a successful year?
How much am I interdependent on the other teachers for my students' success?
How do I optimize my relationship with the other teachers to ensure linguistic progress?
