CCRS in the ABE Classroom: Low Beginning ESL
Are you a teacher who is wondering how to integrate the CCR Standards into your teaching? This lesson focuses on CCR standard Reading Anchor 1, Level A, Speaking and Listening Anchor 1 and 6, and Language Anchor 1. During this lesson, learners demonstrate their ability to: 1) Ask and answer questions about key details in a text, 2) Speak audibly, express thoughts clearly and succinctly, 3) Follow rules for discussions & responding to comments/questions in an exchange, and 4) Understand and use question words. The activities in this video can be used with any topic, and adapted for low beginning to high intermediate level learners.
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:
