Putting English to Work 1 on Canvas

Session 6: 2:45-3:45 PM (Thursday March 03, 2022)



Putting English to Work 1 is a beginning-low ESL Distance Learning course comprised of 20 half-hour videos with corresponding exercises and unit assessments. Each episode follows the evolving story of a diverse cast of new arrivals to the United States. As they strive to learn English, make friends, find work, adapt and succeed in their new country, your students have the opportunity to follow along and learn while exploring the grammar and life skills lessons. The topics— employment, health, independent living, community resources, etc.—align with the CASAS Competency Content Areas.
