Atelier pédagogique: Creating Thematic Units and Assessing for Proficiency

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Lead your own Révolution française by moving away from textbook-driven teaching toward proficiency-based, thematic units. Learn how to devise essential questions for a thematic unit; write Can-Do Statements appropriate for students' proficiency levels; select authentic materials for interpretive assessments; and create proficiency-focused interpersonal and presentational assessments. Bring an existing unit and textbook for reference. Come away with templates for unit design and lesson planning, websites for French thematic units, and sample performance assessments and rubrics.
