How to Determine the Level of Authentic Passages for Classroom Use
TELL: Learning Tools
Rating authentic passages can be challenging. In this presentation, we will help you gain the skills and confidence you need to accurately rate authentic passages for use in your classroom. Using several feature categories as guides, we will identify common attributes of the Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. In addition to this, we will work through a few reading passages in English at each level to give you first-hand experience using these feature categories to rate your passages.
