The SABES PD Center for ESOL has compiled a list of research that may be valuable to you as you design your Adult ESOL program. The list is organized by topic: General Second Language Acquisition (SLA) Research; SLA Instruction; SLA and Culture; and SLA and Literacy. It is not an exhaustive list, of course, but includes many sources that support effective second language instruction. If you have any questions, please contact Dori McCormack, Director of the SABES PD Center for ESOL, at or 413-552-2393.
