Abstract: English language education is the fastest growing segment of adult education in the United States. This paper reports on the process of designing, developing and testing ESL/CivicsLink, a two-year professional development project in English language literacy and civics education. ESL/CivicsLink seeks to enable teachers to acquire effective ESL methods and foundation skills and U.S. civics content knowledge through self-directed, interactive online distance learning. Based on project based learning, the ESL/CivicsLink units are designed to engage teachers from varied backgrounds in technology-mediated projects and activities which enable them to adapt and change to more effective practices for ESL.
