Mark Curran, an Alaska based educator whose career has brought him around the globe, has completed his new book “The E.S.L. Mainstream Linking Curriculum Guide (Grades 1-8)”: workbook/textbook blueprint for the benefit of teachers and students alike.

“It incorporates a basic set of mainstream, subject topics, into a format for the teacher to expedite, and it provides for second language learners to develop English language skills while aligned with mainstream, text, scope, and sequence expectations,” Mark Curran said of his book. “From day one, the teacher is provided with a set of lesson topics to guide the educator and the students through mainstream subject requirements. In conjunction with this, students are focused on acquiring their second language skills.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Mark Curran’s book implements a tried and true process the author developed over his many years of teaching English as a second language to students in the United States, and abroad.

“My education travels have taken me from working with Yupik Eskimo students on the Yukon River, and on an island off the Siberian coast of Russia, to teaching in a homestead village near Alaska’s Gerstle River,” Curran explained. “In Nome, Alaska, I worked with Vietnamese Boat People, as an adult ESL teacher.”

As a communications instructor, at the junior college level, Curran taught many Alaskan Natives, in a pilot program geared toward developing their English language skills. Curran has spent time on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona, as a sixth grade teacher. Overseas, he was a teacher in American curriculum international schools in South America and Asia.

Readers who wish to integrate methods proposed in this book into their syllabus can purchase “The E.S.L. Mainstream Linking Curriculum Guide (Grades 1-8)” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
