Canadian Language Basics Volume A

Lesson Plans for LINC/ELSA Level 2

Heather Davis and Lucy Sanford

Canadian Language Basics is divided into three volumes. These three books, divided for each of the main teaching terms, are communicative, thematic teacher's guides that follow the LINC 2/ELSA 2 curriculum guidelines and correlate to the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs). They are designed to provide LINC 2/ELSA 2 instructors with a one-stop resource for the lessons and activities that they need in order to teach the LINC curriculum.

Each book supplies teachers with one term's worth of weekly lesson plans, daily agendas, grammar references pages, and worksheets. For clear, realistic, and colourful illustrations to accompany the lessons, the books use the Oxford Picture Dictionary, Canadian Edition as a vocabulary reference and visual jumping-off point. Canadian Language Basics aims to provide a solid foundation of material for LINC/ELSA teachers in a convenient way that helps them easily teach at the appropriate level for the LINC/ELSA curriculum with less required prep time.
