Summary

This master's thesis proposes that students experience optimal learning of a second language in a literature-based curriculum and when multiple methods of teaching are employed. The document includes a statement of the problems and challenges of second language learning, an overview of historical and theoretical aspects of teaching a second language, a review of the literature concerning the use of literature in teaching a second language, an examination of the importance of a multimodal learning environment, and a rationale for using nonfiction literature in a multimodal curriculum. There is also an instructional guide for using "The Incredible Journey of Lewis and Clark" by Rhonda Blumberg in an English-as-a-Second-Language curriculum, including an outline of course goals and objectives and attached lesson plans. Various language assessment tools are found in the appendices, including the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements criteria, writing criteria, basic speaking rubrics, a discussion of minimal marking techniques, a presentation guide, and a multi-trait chart. Contains 62 references. (KFT)
