Young adults planning together

Effective curriculum design supports learners by creating meaningful learning experiences that incorporate Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities to promote gains in language proficiency.

The STARTALK  CREATE interactive template offers a pathway for teachers to design a curriculum that supports learning. As you follow the steps in the planning template, you will be guided through a backward design process where you will identify your learning targets and build one or more learning episodes that will support meaningful learning. You can build a lesson, a unit, or even a course. Select CREATE in the menu above to get started!
