This project builds on the foundation of Alberta’s existing Adult ESL (English as a Second Language) Curriculum Framework to assess the attitudes of language instructors and program administrators across Alberta toward the idea of a unified curriculum for provincial ESL programs. The research is establishing possible opportunities and next steps for bridging the existing curriculum framework to instructors’ day-to-day practice and promoting unity across the provincial ESL system. It also includes identifying potential approaches to integrating the new Skills for Success framework into ESL programming.
