How to use this course: Think of The Lexical Portfolio Course as a class room text book that you choose for your language class. Each student buys a subscription and accesses the materials on their desk top/notebook or tablet computer in the classroom. (of course they later can access it from any other internet connected devise elsewhere) . As they do the various activities and tasks the results are collected for you both (in the LMS) and the student (Show Details/My Scores/My Words/ My Documents areas). This eliminates the need for you to keep classroom records.

The daily unit is projected onto the screen or through a HD monitor so both you and the students are on the same page. You "lead" the class, as you feel suitable to your situation/interests/ student abilities. Meaning you can personalize these materials by doing many activities as group work: (reading passages together out-loud, playing games together, clicking into hyperlinks for additional authentic resources, etc.) Or having students do tasks on their own or as homework.

Scores for tasks/activities are auto -generated with extra columns for you to manually enter scores for ppt./word document or tests/assignments you create. (A teacher's manual is in progress: inquiries welcome)

Equipment Needed: Desk- top computers/ Notebooks / Tablets such as IPad's for each student & teacher. High-Speed Internet Access; Projector/Screen or HD Monitors.
(These courses are delivered 100% on the Internet. There are no PDF files/or other downloads required. Available anywhere there is Internet access)
