Hi all!

I am a middle school spanish teacher.  In the summers I work with a program teaching English to migrant workers.  I have been asked to teach one class of ESL during the academic year this year, in addition to my full time Spanish teaching job.

I love my classes, so I decided to stay with one needy class in particular.  They would like to work on grammar.  (silly boys!)  Although my first language is English, and I teach Spanish grammar on a daily basis, I don't feel quite prepared to teach English grammar.

I am looking for books about teaching ESL (including methodology for ESL) as well as English grammar books that are often used in ESL classes.  My program won't buy me textbooks because I am only teaching one class during the academic year.  If you have any books  on either topic, please pm me. I don't care about the age as long as they follow PBS guidelines.   I have some books on my wish list that I am waiting on, but I thought this might be another way to get my hands on some stuff.

Originally I gave an age frame for these books, and then I figured that I was limiting myself to opportunities.  Please pm me if you think that you have something that might help!
