Assignment 1: Précis—Strategies to Understand ELL Content
Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, do a more in-depth research on one of these strategies: graphic organizers, the Frayer model, or content area learning logs.
Based on your research, write a précis that answers the following:
- How will the use of this strategy assist ELLs in understanding content?
- How will the use of the strategy affect the native English speaker?
- What are content areas to which this strategy best lends itself?
- How will the inclusion of this strategy assist in addressing the course objectives?
A précis is a brief summary that presents the main points of an argument or topic in concise form. Develop a 1–2-page précis in the Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.doc.
By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.
