The Multi-Level ESL Classroom: Transforming Weakness into Strength! @ Office of Adult Education
Jun 16 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Description:
In reality, every adult English as a Second Language (ESL) class is made up of learners at a variety of education levels. The presenter from Cambridge University Press will demonstrate a method to turn this from a weakness into a strength!  The activity is called like-ability-cross ability, and it uses the students themselves as the secret ingredient to making multi-levels work! It uses the students experience in learning their first language to great advantage!

Free materials will be available to all participants!
