What do I have in common with students that speak other languages? 


What can I learn from friends who are different from me?


Here are some tips and suggestions to implement the assessments.


  • Download and print the assessments you want to use from the main unit page.
  • Optional: Include a rubric on the back.

Step 1: Proficiency Goal

Show the rubric and/or give them one. Remind them of their proficiency goal on the rubric and what it takes to get it.

Ask them to circle their proficiency goal on the rubric or on the top of their assessment when they get it.


Step 2: Assessments

Have them remove all resources.

Give them the assessment (download on main unit page). Go over any parts of it that you want to clarify.

Remind students to think/plan what they will want to include. Use the lines under the scenario or another paper. Additional resource: Checklist PDF

Let them shine!

    Hi – The checklist pdf link is dead. 🙂 Thanks.

      Updated! I have to say though, it’s an old version and not looking too clear for me. I’ll put that on the list to update.
