This is the first segment of the presentation given on Thursday, February 24, through my KYESL.org platform. In this first segment, I document how Kenton Co. Adult ESL has implemented the Oxford Picture Dictionary and its supplementary materials into our program curriculum and design. I also discuss the promising results this new program model has provided in terms of progress on both the Basic English Skills Test (BEST), and the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS).
