ESL MultiLevel Model 1

This model is used for a traditional classroom setting and delivery mode. The teacher may be working with a textbook or using materials s/he has created. Groups are determined by their English proficiency level. The lesson topic for both groups is the same, but the individual objectives for each group are appropriate to its level. For example,

Lesson Topic: Buying Food in a Supermarket

Lesson Objective:

  • Beginning Level - Students will be able to name five items they buy at the supermarket and match the words with pictures.
  • Intermediate Level - Students will be able to describe the location of seven items in the supermarket and ask the prices.
