It just keeps getting better! BrainPOP ESL now has 3 complete levels of movies (30 lessons per level) teaching beginning to advanced English language. ELLs learn language usage through the engaging movies with Ben and Moby, and reinforce skills through interactive features that encourage listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Level 1 begins with the assumption that there is no prior knowledge of the English language and focuses on the basics, while Levels 2 and 3 introduce content movies in science, math, social studies, and the arts. The content covered in these movies make them the perfect companion to movies on BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. Additionally, the robust reading and writing program in Levels 2 and 3 focuses on a different text structure in each unit. New to working with ELLs? Not to worry, each lesson comes with detailed lesson plans full of suggested learning strategies, graphic organizers and visuals.
