Session 7 – Resources

Learning Outcomes:
Choose and create learning materials to match your student’s goals, interests and skill levels.


This week’s assignment was given out, on paper, by Stacy at Session 6. It’s intended to be done in a group. If you were present, you will now know who the members of your group are. You may already have divided up the assignment among yourselves. If you weren’t at Session 6, you should contact Stacy and/or pick up the assignment from the front desk.

Below is some information about Clear Language and Readability that will help you with the assignment.

Bring this assignment to Session 8.
