This is an ESOL unit for middle school students. Students learn about nouns, verbs, and adjectives in the target language. They spend time orally demonstrating knowledge of the patterns and rules governing using these words in oral language, as well as in written work. Each week, the focus will be on a certain part of speech. Students complete a small project at the end of each week to demonstrate their listening ability and their comprehension of the concepts through the target language. A formative assessment checklist is kept on each student throughout the three weeks and shared with students to show them areas that need improvement or are sufficient.
