Effective theme teaching requires planning and intentional instruction. The purpose of this tool is to help instructors understand how components of a thematic unit are tied together and plan effective thematic units.
This tool includes two parts:
- A guide to developing a theme unit plan. This guide outlines considerations in completing a unit plan, and highlights the relationships between different sections of the unit plan.
- Theme unit and lesson planning templates. These are provided to guide you in the process of developing an ESL literacy theme unit and corresponding lesson plans.
This tool can be used by individual instructors, in a professional development or team-building setting, or in a course guide or curriculum package.
