ASHP/CML Materials Adapted for ESL Students
In the past few years, master teachers of our NYC Making Connections program have been working with ASHP/CML educators to adapt some of our resources for ESL students. Based on four video documentaries, an ESL curriculum packet for secondary school humanities classrooms will be available in the fall. The packet includes adaptations of four video viewers’ guides: Daughters of Freemen, Five Points, 1877: The Grand Army of Starvation, and Up South. In addition, instructional techniques for advancing students’ literacy skills were developed on a range of topics covered in the videos including, immigration/migration, labor, industrialization, urban life, and race.
