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.
