For those teachers who have already taken class #3:
CLASS #4>>>FINAL EVALUATION:
- Written evaluation, F2F (face to face) & individual. Topics: discussed in class >>>pay SPECIAL attention to 1@1 model. Check the tools seen during the course. Check tools & programs in your netbooks.
- TO HAND IN: Design a teaching sequence (individually or in pairs) and include AT LEAST three tools discussed in this course. The teaching sequence should be designed for a REAL course & school, within a project, include tasks, etc, etc, etc>>>see first handout. Remember we are working within the CURRICULUM DESIGN and it is a prescriptive doc. Of course you can include your teaching sequence on your blog, but a PAPER VERSION should be handed in (with links available from blog): regulations :-)
- Your BLOG: it should include several tools. See your mates' blogs for "inspiration".
- Bring your CD (Curriculum Designs). Pay attention to the CONTENT you are going to teach>>> according to your group.

When you design TASKS you have to take into account the thinking skills involved (see 4Cs & COGNITION in the CLIL handout).
Benjamin Bloom (1956) and a group of colleagues divided thinking skills into LOTS and HOTS and identified three domains of educational activities. In the nineties Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom, revisited the cognitive domain and made some changes>>>he changed the names in the six categories from noun to verb forms and rearranged them (see the highest thimking skills).
You can read more here: BLOM'S TAXONOMY OF LEARNING DOMAINS. The verbs in each level can be useful in the design of tasks. Anothe r very interesting source if you HERE
More on BLOOM'S TAXONOMY REVISED (you may use these verbs to create TASKS!)
