This is an introduction to the new unit that you can do after the previous unit’s assessment or start class with it and immediately lead into the first lesson.


  • Download the “Objectives Sheet” and “Experiences Sheet” from the download on main unit page
    • Print/copy for each student (can be put front/back)
  • Optional: Vocabulary Copy for each student.
  • Optional: Props to help with comprehension throughout the unit.

Introduce Unit 

Start by introducing the new unit to the students to let them know what they will be learning.

Essential Question

Introduce the essential questions for the unit. Try to explain in simplified target language using props or show it in English. See what they already think. Options: Start a journal (written or video). Give them time to reflect back after lessons.

Unit Objectives

What will we be learning this unit?

Pass out the Objective Sheet for this unit to students.

Give them a chance to read over the objective on their own for a minute or two.

Have them talk it over with a partner: Which objectives are most interesting? challenging? real life?

Have them circle their proficiency goal at the bottom. Refer back to the rubric if needed.

If you want to do a pre-assessment, they could try to do each of the objectives.

Experiences / Homework

Give them the experiences sheet. Go over the options. See if they have any other ideas that would connect with the 5 C’s (community, cultures, communication, connections, comparisons). Explain how, how many, and when to turn it in. Also explain guidelines for the “Your Option” like does it need to be approved first.


This is a way for students to organize the vocabulary that they learn each day. Give them a minute or two at the end of every class to add new vocab to these categories. 



Extension Ideas:

  • For level 2 students and higher, give them a pre-assessment to see their strengths and areas for growth.
  • Connect with other content teachers
  • Arrange for a guest speaker to visit
