Making the Most of This Digital Resource Book (ESL)
The "Document Annex" of the digital resource book "QualityTime-ESL" serves two purposes. Firstly, it gives the teacher the opportunity to see concrete examples of what I speak about in the different chapters. Secondly, it contributes to the main objective of this guidebook, which is to help teachers set up a language program of their own and produce the kind of "personalized booklets" or workbooks that I speak about.
The fact that it is a "digital" resource book makes it relatively easy for the teacher to find the document that I refer to. Teachers just have to click on the hyperlinks in the texts as they read the twenty odd chapters of the book. Whenever they find "activities" or "explanations of assignments" that they wish to include in their own booklets, they can thus access them directly from the different chapters and print them out ready to be photocopied.
There is a second way of using the Document Annex. Teachers can choose randomly the documents they are interested in by consulting the "List of Hyperlinks". These hyperlinks are listed by chapters, so by opening up a chapter and then using the search motor of their computers teachers will find the place where I speak about a particular document.
There is a third possibility. Teachers can go directly to the "Tree Structure" on the DVD and choose the materials they wish to use. If they so wish, they have the possibility of going into the "List of Hyperlinks" to see if I have dealt with the item they have chosen; and if so then use the search motor of their computer to find my instructions or advice. I wish to add, however, that in the book QualityTime-ESL.com I have of course not spoken about all the documents included in the Document Annex, because there are simply too many items.
