Secondary English teachers such as myself who are tasked with teaching that one learner whose abilities fall far below the rest of his classmates are challenged with a search to find resources that meet that learner's ability (level 2 and age 14) without insulting him with primary-style presentation. In this Super Sentence video, I am inspired to change the sentences to something more age-appropriate but making use of this teacher's clear instructions, sentence model applications and enable my TA to work with this learner for a successful outcome to the lesson. Thanks very much for sharing this resource.
