Lesson Planning Part 2 – Lesson Planning Options for Thematic Units

The Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL) of the New York State Education Department (NYSED) presents this next workshop in its 2022 Professional Learning Series:  Lesson Planning Part 2 – Lesson Planning Options for Thematic Units.  This live, in-person workshop is offered free of charge for world language educators and administrators working and studying in New York State educational institutions.

Webinar date:  Tuesday, December 13th, 4:00 - 5:00 PM

Workshop description:  What can effective and engaging lessons look like in the context of a thematic unit? Lesson design and strategy selection can depend on the lesson focus, whether that be a single mode of communication, integrated modes of communication, a targeted language function, or a particular cultural context. In this session, participants will explore strategies that lend themselves well to different lesson designs to maximize student engagement and promote proficiency development.
