This workshop will discuss how teachers from an Atlanta community-based adult ESL program train and utilize community volunteers in the ESL classroom. Following a brief description of the program and some of the challenges which necessitate the use of volunteers in large multilevel, adult ESL classrooms, the presenter will share the 4-part approach that she has adopted to integrate volunteers into its ESL classroom:  training, preparation, observation and communication. The workshop will then highlight 4 strategic roles that volunteers play in the classroom, with tips on how teachers can ensure that the quality of instruction remains high and that volunteers feel prepared and supported.
