Planning for and Instructing Multilevel Classes Using the Canadian Language Benchmarks identifies four frameworks for selecting and adapting tasks, based on the CLBs; provides examples of multilevel tasks that correspond to the four frameworks; offers practical suggestions for grouping learners; and provides a sample multilevel lesson for learners at CLB levels 1, 3, and 5. This module was designed to meet a frequently expressed professional development need instruction identified in the Feasibility Study of a Professional Development Program for ESL Instructors of Adult Immigrants. The study was conducted in 2007-2008 with funding from Alberta Employment and Immigration.
