Using the Summative Assessment Manual (SAM)
This workshop will introduce ESL instructors to the CCLB resource SAM: Summative Assessment Manuals, developed by the author of the Canadian Language Benchmarks, provides made‐for‐classroom assessment tools and supports for CLB-based programs at CLB levels 1 – 4 in universal themes including: Food & Nutrition, Health & Safety, Home, Community and Work. Participants will gain knowledge of SAM through hands on participation in using one theme of SAM at one CLB level. Participants will leave with the confidence needed to explore and use SAM in their own classrooms.
