| | Re: Looking for a Task-based teaching Course book
I teach Beginning High ESL to adults in California. Adult schools out here receive government funding based on how students do on the CASAS tests. So some of our ESL textbooks are aligned with CASAS standards. Side by Side and Stand Out are very popular here. Both are aligned with CASAS standards. I've used both texts. Students really like Side by Side. For lessons on health, I prefer Stand Out. Stand Out also has a good variety of activities built into the book. Some of my colleagues like English in Action, which I have not used.
