”) where students learn an irregular spelling rule (e.g., “child/children”).
C. Design an original read-and-describe activity (using the attached “WGU Lesson Activity Format ELT_SUM_2_WGU_Lesson_Activity_Format.rtf”) where students read one of their writing samples to a peer and then the peer describes the content of the writing to the class.
