The purpose of this study was to measure the effectiveness of two instructional activities on teacher credential candidates as they learned how to adapt standards-based content lessons and increase vocabulary acquisition for English learners. Responses regarding lesson adaptations for English learners from a lesson plan assignment were used to measure the effectiveness of the activities. The use of the two activities positively contributed to the passage rate on the assignment and the California Teacher Performance Assessments. These results will be used to prepare future teachers in the teacher education program at California State University, Stanislaus to successfully work with English learners.
