Alberta Routes: Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) Study Group

What exactly are the CLBs? This unique 200-page document was created to guide those who support adult learners of English as an additional language (EAL) in Canada. Would you like to increase your understanding of the CLB? Or know more about how they can inform and support your EAL instruction? If so, join us in this interactive online study group. You’ll have an opportunity to connect with other practitioners, share and gain ideas and strategies for your own teaching context. We will engage in learner-oriented activities to help you meet the communication and content needs of learners in your communities.

Week One: An Overview of the CLB
Week Two: Lesson Planning with the CLB
Week Three: Planning Assessment with the CLB
