CASAS STEPS for Reading and CASAS STEPS for Listening are the new CASAS standardized tests that apply the critical thinking promoted in the English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS). Stand Out co-author Rob Jenkins will share practical classroom applications that promise to promote improved language development with the added benefit of greater CASAS results. In applying these basic principles, students will practice critical thinking like categorizing, comparing, analyzing, and inferring while preparing seamlessly for the CASAS STEPS test. Participants will learn the types of activities that they can promote in the classroom which reflect the tests so learners are better prepared for what they will see on the STEPS tests, all in the context of a well-constructed lesson plan. Rob will use examples from the new edition of Stand Out: Evidenced-Based Learning for Life, College, and Career to show how integrating these strategies will lead to success for all students.
