I was fortunate to observe two of the best multi-level lessons I have ever seen, and they were taught by our own instructors – Linda Carlon and Lynn Hawley. I marveled at their systematic and well thought out lessons that fit into a weekly schedule of meaningful activities. Students in both classes knew what was expected of them and were engaged and challenged. I believe that multi-level instruction is extremely difficult. You need to balance the needs of students who may never have attended school in their native countries with students who were professionals. I am proud to feature some of Linda and Lynn’s lesson ideas. Critical instructional support is provided by Alicia Woodson and Rosa Villegas.
