STARTALK Learning Plan Guide and Template (formerly Lesson Plans)

For STARTALK student programs, the lesson plan is referred to as a learning plan. STARTALK student programs are required to complete learning plans for each day of instruction and for all learning experiences whether those experiences occur in the classroom or in other settings. A lesson is a building block of a unit that has clearly defined learning targets to be achieved within a specified time frame. A lesson makes content accessible and should be designed and implemented in ways that are appropriate for students and reflect principles of second language acquisition. Lessons are further broken into learning episodes which should not last for more than 30 minutes. Each learning episode addresses a specific lesson can-do statement. Programs are required to complete learning plan STAGES 1, 2, and 3.
