Where they are

After my student’s question yesterday about whether conversation is what we usually do with the AP group, I realize that it really would be good to sit down with the kids in level 2 and up and discuss where I see them on the ACTFL scale. At the last AEIN discussion, Nathan said that he does that with each kid above level 1 a couple times a year. I can suddenly see that it would be a really good idea. That would give us a one-on-one talk and be a motivating factor in where they’re headed. I did an overall look with the whole class at the beginning of the year, and now I think that was the wrong way to do it. I can’t believe we’re already almost at the end of our year, but now I plan to do this individually with the kids.

Here are those ACTFL scale documents: No. 1, and No. 2.
