CCRS in the ABE Classroom: Intermediate ESL
New and experienced ABE teachers will benefit from the standards-based teaching practices demonstrated in this video. This lesson takes place in an adult ESL classroom and focuses on CCR standard Reading Anchor 1, Level C. The activities in the lessons require learners to: 1) Identify and highlight evidence that supports their answers to text-dependent inference questions as evidenced by their responses to the questions and highlighting marks in the text, and 2) Accurately quote or paraphrase specific evidence from the text as evidenced by small group and whole class discussions.
The accompanying discussion/reflection guide can be used in its entirety or is separated into meaningful chunks for shorter, more focused PD.
Use the video and guide:
- as part of an all-staff meeting
- in a PLC
- with a colleague
