This combined reader and teachers' guide for English second language instruction was developed from teacher workshops conducted in Belize. The reader consists of stories, poems, and drama from the indigenous people of the country, accompanied by supporting English language learning experiences and activities. Texts represent aspects of indigenous culture and are grouped according to the following categories--folk tales, holidays, school and home life, life in the country, river and sea, town and city, and the nation of Belize. The components of most lessons are: 1) a preview section for students, 2) the story, and 3) exercises and vocabulary building activities. Some illustrations are included. The text of the reader and the text of the teachers' guide are presented in a parallel format. An introduction to the guide offers suggestions for instructional techniques, grouping and supplementary activities
