6 …from Planning Curriculum for Learning World Languages, DPI, 2002 “The major shift is to look at language learning not as an abstract study of vocabulary, grammar, and linguistics, but as a useful tool to meet the demands of contemporary life…. …moving from an emphasis on teaching to a focus on learning.” Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson

7 Standards as a Mind Set FROM... TO... “What do I teach on Monday?” “I’ve had 4 years of (Language) and I don’t remember a thing.” “What will my students be able to do?” “I can talk to you about...”

9 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Theme A theme describes a UNIT of instruction that is... Global in nature Large enough to include more than one “C” Worth doing Can be re-introduced and expanded at different levels of instruction A theme is NOT limited to... An activity A grammar point A vocabulary list A technology tool

18 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Three Modes of Communication Presentational Interpersonal Interpretive

19 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson What Verify How well Structures and Vocabulary Practice pieces

20 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson 3 modes of communication: “Teach” the mode... Read the description of your assigned mode (from page 5 of the handout) Identify the key characteristics of the mode Prepare to “teach” the mode to your colleagues in student-friendly language

21 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Die Umwelt (Performance Assessments) Interpretive: Understand information from a website about student environmental initiatives in Germany Presentational: Create a poster, song, rap, new article, short story, (other!) about the environment Interpersonal: Interview each other about a) what you see as the greatest danger to the environment and why and b) what you do to protect the environment

22 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Check: Sorting the Modes... With your group, determine which mode of communication each performance assessment is “testing”

24 SPIRALING CURRICULUM DESIGN How do I/you look at the world? Nature and geographical features What’s my/your life like? Describe seasonal activities Who am I/you? Free time activities indoors and outdoors Beginning Developing Transitioning Refining What do I/you think and feel? Environmental issues

27 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson WI “Flower” Standards Model

28 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Learning a language is far more than an intellectual, cognitive challenge. It is a means to grow and mature through the experience of other cultures. It gives breadth and depth to our personalities. It allows us to approach problems differently because we have experienced different worlds; it allows us, as Proust says, “to see with new eyes.” Veronica Lacy Culture Perspectives Products Practices

30 One “iceberg” view of Culture Modified from Gary R. Weaver, "Understanding and Coping with Cross-cultural Adjustment Stress" in Gary R. Weaver, editor, Culture, Communication and Conflict: Readings in Intercultural Relations, second edition (Simon & Schuster Publishing, 1998) Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson

34 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson What Verify How well Structures and Vocabulary Practice pieces

35 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Setting the stage for learning.. (Examples from Umwelt unit) What do we know? CONTENT (Previous themes, vocab) What can we do? FORMS (Structures and functions)

36 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson How do you plan instruction – moving from guided to independent production? Setting the stage for learning...

37 Building repertoire Classroom Activities – Building Repertoire Moving from... Building toward Teacher Controlled RECEPTION Teacher introduces Teacher/class practiceStudents practice Open-Ended RECEPTION & PRODUCTION Students demonstrate Practiced, Memorized LESSON PLAN CONSTRUCT Spontaneous, Independent REAL-LIFE APPLICATION

38 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Planning Instruction Determine Summative Assessments Design Formative Assessments to check learning- worksheets, quizzes, activities, etc. Guided practice to independent production (pg. #11 “Building Repertoire”) The textbook and other resources (supporting materials, songs, movies and video clips, other…) Technology tools -that support the language and culture goals of a standards- based curriculum Technology tools -that support the language and culture goals of a standards- based curriculum

40 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson Reflection Is there a sense of connectedness among the three modes? Are the communication standards targeted in the performance appropriate for the task? Are students engaged in learning while they are doing the assessment? Are the expected performances set at the appropriate level? Is the unit worth doing?

41 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson A shift in FOCUS Teacher-centered Talking about language Coverage Testing Sequential curriculum design Learning in isolation Learning about cultures Student-centered Using the language Developing proficiency Assessment Spiraling curriculum design Transfer of learning Functioning within cultures LESS MORE

42 Karen Luond Fowdy Lisa Hendrickson CHECK!..(by the end of this presentation you will have considered these questions...) How have the national and state standards created a new vision for learning languages? What are the Standards for Foreign Language Learning? How do the Standards inform and guide my curriculum design and instruction? RETURN to the OVERVIEW
