Webinar: Designing authentic thematic units in the language classroom

Designing authentic thematic units in the language classroom

The interconnectedness of the world and the access to online media have opened innovative possibilities for accessing and using authentic cultural input in the language classroom.

Yet oftentimes teachers need fresh ideas about how to weave culturally authentic texts and tasks into their curriculum and use them to create reliable and valid assessments to measure their students’ language proficiency.

This presentation will show how authentic cultural input can be used as a springboard to develop engaging interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational performance tasks, illustrating how to use performance-based rubrics alongside such tasks to assess students’ developing proficiency and intercultural communicative competence.

By the end of the presentation, participants will know how to use authentic cultural materials to design performance tasks and summative assessments that can supplement or replace their traditional grammar-and-vocabulary tests.
