Instructional Ideas

  • Pick and choose the exercises that fit your plans best; the entire packet may be too much to go through all at once
  • Use these exercises for warm-ups, homework assignments, or assessments
Classroom Considerations

  • Since the packet is rather long, you may need to spend some time sifting through the materials; there are collaborative activities and longer written responses included in the exercises, you just have to find them
  • Many of the questions are multiple choice, but there are also short answer and paragraph response questions included
Pros

  • Comes with preparatory exercises as well as more complex activities that involve reading and analyzing longer texts
  • Provides plenty of vocabulary practice
Cons

  • There are no answers provided
