Communication Technologies English Unit Of Work: A Closer Look At The Things That Attract Us


Summary of Unit(s) of Work:

A variety of instructional, teaching, and assessment strategies are incorporated into both units. These are aligned to the unit objectives in order to achieve the ultimate learning outcomes. For example, written responses are used throughout journal one to validate understanding a text’s purpose, audience, context, or style. Writing provokes learners to make deep, focused and meaningful responses to texts. Likewise, the student-directed learning throughout the second unit allows the teacher to evaluate the depth of learning occurred in unit one. Key questioning is integral to all aspects of the program. Questioning is an ongoing form of assessment that provokes metacognition and deep learning. Effective use of these and other strategies, the application of knowledge processes, and multiliteracy approaches provide literacy-rich learning experiences that contribute to the skills and aptitudes of 21st Century learners
