ESL Multilevel Model 2

This model is used in a non-traditional project-based classroom. Each group works on its own project, and there may be several groups working simultaneously. Groups may be determined by their English proficiency levels, and also by their interest in specific projects, by their learning goals, or by other appropriate criteria. The topic of the project is the same for all groups, although each group project may have a different focus. For example,

General Topic:

  1. Buying Food in a Supermarket

Sample Group Topics:

  1. Compare pricing and nutritional information of items to be purchased in the supermarket
  2. Create a budget for weekly purchases at the supermarket
