Planning and Assessing Languages EMT617



This is the second of two sequential Languages curriculum Units. In this Unit, you will build upon knowledge gained in the previous Unit, design teaching units for Languages learning and consider your role, as teacher, in this process. This will include investigating and devising learning and teaching experiences that are consequently supported by fair, valid and reliable assessment strategies to inform your future teaching and reporting processes.

As part of this investigation, you will explore the synergies between Languages learning and culture, the development of intercultural competencies and demonstrate your growing capacity to support and manage a Languages program. You will also be introduced to a range of Languages learning resources, planning templates and strategies to ensure your teaching of Languages is based on current theoretical practices.
