It is intended as a supplementary resource of self-contained and reproducible activities to complement existing LINC programming. The attached CD ROM contains the book in PDF format.</p><p> The choice and development of activities was determined by a wide range of factors, including: </p><p>~ the LINC 1-5 Curriculum Guidelines; ~ a survey of needs of LINC instructors in Ontario; ~ the requirement to adhere to the appropriate Canadian Language Benchmarks; ~ the classroom experience of the writers; ~ a mandate to address the specific needs of women, youth (school-leaving age to twenty-nine years </p><p>old) and seniors, as identified in the Consultations on the Settlement and Language Training Services Needs of Newcomers in Support of the Canada-Ontario Immigration Agreement, 2006. </p><p> Every activity has been assessed by a CLB-trained editor to ensure alignment with the appropriatebenchmarks.</p><p> A general methodology is provided for each activity, but it is anticipated that instructors will make modifications based on the needs of their particular classes.</p><p> The book contains a wide range of tasks that can be used as assessment tools. They adhere to the Competency Outcomes outlined in the Canadian Language Benchmarks.</p><p> The activities target the following benchmark levels:</p><p>LINC 1 LINC 2 LINC 3 LINC 4</p><p>CLB 1 CLB 2 CLB 3,4 CLB 5</p><p>CLB 1 CLB 2 CLB 3,4 CLB 5</p><p>CLB 1 CLB 2 CLB 3 CLB 4</p><p>CLB 1 CLB 2 CLB 3 CLB 4</p><p>Speaking</p><p>Listening</p><p>Reading</p><p>Writing</p><p>Notes to Readers</p></li><li><p>CONTENTS</p><p>Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada III</p><p>THEMES &amp; ACTIVITIES</p><p>AT HOME IN OUR COMMUNITY &amp; THE WORLD</p><p>Nice To Meet You .........................................................................................................3</p><p>Can You Fix It?
