Instructional and Assessment Strategies
These resources for instruction and assessment can meet the needs of all learners. Teachers can choose the appropriate strategies for the task, language level and age of their learners. There are also sample units and templates that follow the Model Curriculum framework.
Assessment and Rubrics
These sample units were created by Ohio teachers to show how to incorporate all the components of the Model Curriculum into a cohesive unit plan. Each unit includes a communicative context and theme, an IPA outline, authentic resources, and strategies for instruction and assessment.
The samples encompass a broad range of proficiency levels, themes, topics and languages. All samples are written in English so that teachers can modify the unit plan to meet the needs of their learners, language or proficiency level.
Course and Curriculum Design Tool
This sample template can be used to design a yearlong, standards-based course or curriculum, using components of the model curriculum. .
