Chapter Five: Materials selection and development

The materials you teach should be chosen primarily for their relevance to the content area. You may select them from authentic materials used in content-area instruction or from commercial materials. Developing materials is time- and energy-consuming, so you should take advantage of any materials which are already available for your use. The Resources Section (Appendix A of this Manual) describes materials that are available through Peace Corps' ICE. All of the materials listed have been evaluated for use in Peace Corps ESP programs and are highly recommended. You are encouraged to order copies.
