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.

This book disseminates practices shared at the annual event Every Teacher is a Language Teacher held at the Faculty of Education (University of Ottawa) for all first-year Bachelor of Education teacher candidates. This resource responds directly to calls from attendees for a resource that synthesizes the content shared at each workshop, enabling them to access and implement the rich pedagogical knowledge shared. The book is meant to serve as a textbook for Teacher Education courses, graduate courses, as well as an ongoing promotion of research-based practices created by Faculty of Education partners (faculty and graduate students alike) that should be shared more widely with Canadian language educators, teachers and consultants, particularly in its bilingual format. This publication is unique and particularly useful to both pre- and in-service teachers, as it offers modes of practice based on both research and theory. This means it is neither exclusively a lesson plan nor a theoretical analysis; but rather a synthesis that aims to show how the two domains inform one another. We see it as being immediately valuable for teacher and teacher educators, while also filling a gap in the field of language education more widely -- one that embodies anti-racist, ethical paradigms within current interdisciplinary practice in its responsiveness to challenges of modern technology and globalization.
