I have taught Regents prep to ESL students for over 10 years now. I have found that breaking down the various parts of the Regents exam in as many ways as possible to be key. I am providing a review sheet that I give out that breaks down the various parts of the exam. One page contains a detailed description of the exam and the other provides the information in a chart. I have also included a blank Critical Lens Study Guide handout which students can fill in with the works they have read. Here, they can keep track of the information that they want to remember from each text.
