Curriculum Adaptation on Native Picture Books for Primary ELLs in China--A Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis, the author conducted a case study to explore one way to adapt native picture books for primary ELLs in China. Since traditional ESL picture books have some defects that may have a negative impact on students' second language acquisition, the author chose native picture books as an appropriate alternative. The purpose of the study is to examine the feasibility of curriculum adaptation on native picture books for ELLs in China and to what degree the program can improve the ELLs language skills. The study shows that primary ELLs in urban China can gain access to the native picture books through curriculum adaptation. But it's also found that the adapted read aloud curriculum played a limited role to improve their speaking skills.
