Concepts Taught: Teaching in a classroom with multiple levels of lang. ability

Dr. Clark has written a book on this topic and includes many fun-filled activies for the ESL/language development classroom. In this writing we are including one of his favourites: the "Learning Tube."
The "Learning Tube" consists of cutting out strips of paper vertically and fitting them loosely around a tube (towel dispenser, etc). Prior to this step, the students write any type of data from left to right that is logical, such as "H 2 O = formula for water." Each word goes on a separate strip. Then the words are scrambled with other formulas from science, for example. Then the students must twist the tube's strips until they line up logically. 10 pts for each word correct.
Then the student must read the sentence aloud 2 times to receive credit. This aids in: TAAS or other curriculum items leanred, and oral language development.
