Before teaching the unit: Share this unit with a colleague(s), get their feedback before you begin teaching the unit. This may be done via email. Use the questions listed below to help elicit useful advice and feedback on your unit. Keep the feedback and advice that you receive in your portfolio.

  1. How effectively are the textbook and other materials integrated?
  2. How effectively are the elements of daily class activities introduced and practiced?
    • How often are opportunities provided for students to move from guided practice to independent performance?
    • How often are opportunities provided for students to move from reception to production?
  3. How effectively are culture, grammatical structures, and vocabulary eliciting both student's active and passive knowledge integrated?
  4. Does it appear that students would be ready for the final assessments of the unit?
  5. Is there evidence of modeling of the performance assessment?
  6. Is there evidence of practicing in the way in which performance will be assessed?

During the unit: Keep notes on the re-worked unit as to what areas were successful and where improvement would be beneficial. Discuss these areas with your colleague(s) during the unit to help refine your plans. Keep these notes and add a copy of your notes and unit to your portfolio.
