Instructional Ideas

  • Pick and choose your favorite activities or use this as a full lesson
  • Spend some time working together to pick apart each informational text; learners can mark the text or use another reading strategy to help with reading comprehension
  • Provide sentence frames for responding to the questions orally and in written form
Classroom Considerations

  • You may want to select the stronger activities out of the packet, since there are some that will prove less effective in an ELL class
Pros

  • Includes an answer key
  • Activities require learners to read, write, speak, and listen
Cons

  • You will need to provide a good amount of additional scaffolding to make some of the tasks accessible to all learners
