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 would like for the books to be no more than 5 years old, if possible  (Teaching materials change so often, it's important to stay current).  I don't need a deal, but deals would be appreciated!

 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.
