Observing Standards-in-Action: ELA Classroom Lesson

Bell-to-bell video of an ELA lesson focused on identifying a claim and evidence (52 minutes; ELA High-intermediate/low secondary ABE students):

  • Some teacher narration, which is very helpful
  • Clear use of “I can” statement and formative assessment
  • Connection of content and skill to real life
  • Nice balance of work with complex text, text-dependent questions and speaking & listening
  • Effective interaction with small groups and different levels of critical thinking prompts for small groups
  • Good examples of scaffolding a difficult skill for students
