This lesson plan is a remix from Effective Communication Using Past Tense. Its focus is to help English as a Second Language (ESL) learners in Adult Basic Education (ABE), Grade Level B, CCR Anchor 1 (SL.3.1-1d), Speaking and Listening Standards, differentiate past and present verb tenses. The context is communicating symptoms to a healthcare provider, but learners will apply this knowledge to create new knowledge in other contexts. Learners will engage in collaborative discussions (one-on-one, group, and instructor-led) with diverse partners, build on others' ideas, ask questions, and practice verbal and written use of past and present verb tenses.
