NJTESOL Presidents Award goes to ESL author Elizabeth Claire
New Brunswick, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Judie Haynes, president of NJTESOL/BE presented the Presidents Award to ESL Author Elizabeth Claire on May 30, 2012 at the organizations annual conference. Ms Haynes explained the award: In the eighties and nineties, when we began teaching ESL, there were almost no materials that were suitable for our students; Elizabeth Claire filled that need, and continues to do so.
Ms. Claire is the author of This Is Me, and All Around Me, (The ESL Wonder Workbooks) that help young entry-level English language learners begin their study of English in a friendly easy-to-use format.
Claire authored one of the first teachers resources in the field: ESL Teachers Activities Kit, published at the time by Prentice Hall Regents. This comprehensive kit has become a classic in the field. The ESL Teachers Activities Kit has been used across the United States (and in Japanese translation in Japan) as a teacher training staple.
