Effective Multilevel Instruction with Side by Side Plus

Effective Multilevel Instruction with Side by Side Plus

Side by Side Plus is the number one selling ESL series in the world.

Long-established as leaders in ESL methodology, authors Steven J.
Molinsky and Bill Bliss have tackled the challenges of multilevel
instruction and made it easier than ever for every student in a
classroom to be successful, no matter what their level of proficiency.

Three Levels of Student Ability

Teachers will find their lesson planning time reduced substantially
when they use the Side by Side Plus Teacher’s
as their one-stop resource for effective multilevel
instruction. Easy-to-use strategies help teachers preview and pre-drill lesson objectives, and hundreds of dynamic expansion activities offer reinforcement and enrichment for students at three different ability levels:

  • Below-level
    students who need extra support and some re-teaching of skills and content to master basic objectives;
  • At-level
    students who are performing well in class and can benefit from reinforcement; and
  • Above-level
    students who want and deserve opportunities for enrichment and greater challenge.

“Getting Ready” Sections

Getting Ready
sections are ideal lesson planning tools. They provide a careful
sequence of instructional steps teachers can use during the warm-up, preview, and initial presentation stages of a lesson – these are especially helpful for below-level students who need careful preparation for a lesson’s new vocabulary, grammar, topics,
functions or language skills.

The Getting Ready
section is an “on-ramp” that allows students to get up to speed with lesson content so that they comprehend the lesson and master its learning objectives.
