Learn strategies to get students talking, writing, and playing with the language at the end of every lesson, and get easy grades in the grade book!

In this course, you will receive a PDF of a brand-new document from Stepping Stones that explains how to use Student Application and Assessment to get kids using the language and ideas that you discussed or worked with in class that day, using tools like Play That Word Cards or the Five-Finger Review Chart to stretch themselves in "high ceiling, low floor" language-using strategies that ensure everyone can be successful, no matter if they are needing a boost of confidence or they are ready to take things to the next level.

Participants will receive a PDF overview of Student Application and Assessment with links to tons of resources, including:

Five go-to Student Application and Assessment strategies that require almost no prep and can be reused again and again with different content and minor tweaks, to help you get off the endless hunt for new ideas and buckle down at getting really good at simple strategies that will take you a long way

Three "next steps" strategies that you can keep in your back pocket and bring out when you need a little variety

Participants will receive a PDF overview of Student Application and Assessment with links to twenty strategies, divided into Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking strategies and further organized into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced (though all the strategies can be use for all levels)

You will be able to view a recorded webinar (78 minutes) with Tina Hargaden to explore the PDF, learn about what "Student Application and Assessment" means within the context of the Daily Instructional Framework, and get tips on how to use the resources in the PDF.
