  • 1. Legal Foundations Chapter One: Understanding the Implications of the Florida Consent Decree A Literacy Root Begins with a Seed: Planting an Elementary Education/ English for Speakers of Other Languages Teacher Preparation Program Valerie J. Bristor, Jane Brady Matanzo (1990s) http://www.americanreadingforum.org/yearbook/yearbooks/98_yearbook/html/09_bristor_98.htm This article provides background knowledge of the realization of an ESOL Endorsement in Florida in the early 1990s, and includes two prominent figures from the Florida Depart ment of Education, R.E. LeMon and L. Clayton-Kandor. The authors present an overvie w of how reading and language arts instruction can meet a state ESOL Endorsement requirement by integrating the requisite knowledge and competencies into existing Teac her Education Programs. Pre-service teachers completing the integrated methodology courses and field experience considered ESOL needs and incorporated strategies as a natural part of their planning and instructional processes. Thus, the ESOL seed was pla nted; it took root; it sprouted and flowered. The inclusion of various checkpoints in programs should assure continuous blooming and opportunities for teachers to choose f rom an abundant garden of practical strategies which will ultimately guide them in delive ring appropriate instruction to English learners in all classrooms.
