7Th Grade Class Azella Esl 433N Clayton State Uni
This activity builds upon the Proficiency Level Analysis assignment from Topic 3. You will use the groups that you created in that topic for this assignment.
Select one of the seventh grade passages from the New K-8 Reading Passages website. Create a 5-8 slide PowerPoint that could be used to demonstrate vocabulary strategies to your colleagues. Your PowerPoint should include the following:
In addition, include a reference slide with 3-5 references from the required readings or other sources to support the reasons for choosing these strategies.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

When grouping students, it is essential to consider their abilities in terms of strengths and weaknesses. This helps to determine the kind of strategy that is more likely to improve their overall skills. Similarly, one needs to understand the learning process of a new language from listening, speaking, reading to writing. In Ms. Jensen’s class, the students should be grouped into 3 sets. The first group will have Suzanne, Jerry, Rebecca, Desiree, and Hailey. The reason why this group should be placed together is that they have varying abilities and they can complement each other. For instance, Suzanne is good at reading and speaking, she can help out her group in those areas to become better than they are.
The second group should have Aryanna, Michael, Corynn, Noah, and Jade. This group possesses the same kind of skills. In more than 3 categories they match in terms of their abilities. This will help because when a few students have better skills than others they are more likely to speak and the rest would have no say in the group. Advanced speakers are more likely to have a say and the beginning students are likely to get lost in the mix (Herrell, 2016). So this group will allow all members to contribute and argue out their points because they are on the same level.
