Integrating Communication

Communication: Connect-Reflect...

Now that you have studied the characteristics of communication and their relationship to assessment and levels, complete the chart with the assessments you used in the Communication: Remember Reflection and other assessments you have evaluated or observed. If you are teaching or observing only one level, describe 3-4 assessments for each mode. If you teach or observe multiple levels, describe 1-3 assessments for each mode at each level.

The chart is available as a Word document or as a static webpage through the links listed below:

Personal Connection: Please copy and paste the following questions into your word processor or download the word document containing the questions. Then answer the questions and save the document for your professional development portfolio.

Using the chart you filled in during the previous exercise and referencing the chart found on page 35 of the Planning Curriculum for Learning World Languages guide, answer the following questions.

  1. Choose one assessment from each communication mode at any level on your chart. Looking at the chart on p. 35, list which one(s) of the characteristics students achieved and which were in need of improvement.
  2. Based on the characteristics students achieved, what evidence demonstrates student achievement of the characteristic(s) you listed? Explain why you think students struggled with the other characteristics you listed as needing improvement.
  3. How might students be better prepared for that assessment in the future so as to improve their performance with respect to the weaker characteristic(s)?
