Unit Design: Learn: Steps for Unit Development...

Through the four key questions that reflect the four levels of development, (see diagram below) instructors are better equipped to help students define themselves and their role as responsible global citizens, thus meeting our goal as educators.


At the center of the above graphic is the beginning level in which students talk about who they are. As students increase proficiency, they move outward towards the refining level of talking about what they think and feel. Once the level of your students' proficiency has been determined a theme must be chosen.

Please read pp. 52-58 in Planning Curriculum for Learning World Languages guide where you will learn more about the key questions, their relationship to theme, levels, and the other steps in develping a standards-based unit.
