Product Description

Struggle and Success CLB 6-8
Reading & Writing (22 RTW)
Jane Batterink

The struggles and success of a man and his family who finally settle in Canada. Lots of Real World stories your students will relate to, exercises and 22 Real World Task Assessments.

Growing up as a first-generation Canadian did not feel like a privilege when I was young. Only later did I realize that those years of living between two cultures, Dutch and Canadian, had been an enriching experience.

This ESL resource contains eleven stories adapted from my father's memoirs. The portions chosen were those most likely to resonate with newcomers to Canada. The learning experience will be most successful if the stories are first read aloud, with time for the students to recall, predict and relate the events to their own experiences.

Many teachers are finding it difficult to satisfy the current requirements for Portfolio-Based Language Assessment. This resource is PBLA-friendly, with each of the eleven chapters containing two ready-to-use PBLA activities relating to the story. Each chapter combines the four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, and includes a grammar section which can be a stand-alone lesson or used as a launching point for more comprehensive coverage. There is also a section on vocabulary development, with a focus on high-frequency words that are embedded in the story and reinforced after the reading in order to improve long-term retention.

Real World themes include:
Health
Employment
Mental Health
Education
Law
Food
Shopping
Technology
Community
Family & Relationships
Culture
Politics
