Unit lesson plan



0 Comment

Despite the affluence of knowledge, the accessibility of modern technology as well as the incessant development of learning and teaching theories, it has become more intricate to claim the best method of teaching and designing a lesson plan. What could be best today may be declined tomorrow. With my respect to all efforts and theories in education, I do believe as long as instruction successfully engages learners in meaningful task that reflects value and attains curricular big idea and open the door for the essential questions is the winning teaching theory and best lesson plan ever.

In my class, I feel that communicative approach is the echo of an effective choice of teaching . For the content is the real world and the necessity and need are the tools for the learner to be on task. Richards and Rodgers (2001) (Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching)note that “as long as instruction engages learners in meaningful communication and enables them to attain the curricular objectives, the range of models and teaching materials compatible with integrated language teaching is unlimited”. Unit Plan Introduction 1) Our goal for the unit: (A) To enhance student’s ability to describe people, place and objects.
