Using CLBs to help Students Reflect

"Many checklists are available to help you and your students track their progression with the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs).

So I adapted a checklist that I use with my students, allowing both the student and me to see at a glance what benchmarks the student is developing and/or achieving".
