This resource book provides teachers with ideas and activities for integrating into English language instruction for adults the competencies identified in a report produced by the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS). SCANS identifies basic and thinking skills, personal qualities, and five competency areas -- resources, interpersonal, information, systems, and technology. Included in the manual are instructional strategy choices, classroom management techniques, and reflection and application activities. Adult ESL instructors, mostly from California, who provided the sample lessons are recognized in the Acknowledgements.The electronic version does not include section four of the library (print) version which is a sample demonstration instructional lesson.
