Lote common core modules

September, 2011:  The EngageNY team has offered thefollowing  guidance regarding LOTE:

Languages Other Than English teachers should be awareof the  Common Core State Standards and the shifts they represent, and think about how  their own instructional practice may change as a result. LOTE teachers should deliver a Common Core aligned unit based on the charge

from the Commissioner;  however, that unit should be in LOTE (not in ELA or Math) and be aligned to the  six shiftsand/or Common Core Learning Standards -— but taking

into account the  level of instruction for the class. Shift 2 in the Six Shifts in ELA/Literacy  includes "Building Knowledgein the Disciplines.” http://engageny.org/resource/common-core-shifts/

Common core standards

Instructional shifts for ELA: What are the shifts for LOTE?











What are the shifts in lote

What are the shifts in LOTE?

  • Balance literary/non-fiction texts: using authentic texts (created for the native speakers that provide rich source of current language and culture

  • Close reading - digging into text, inferring, reading between the lines,analyzing vocabulary & structure, etc.

  • Design presentational tasks (speaking or writing) that require students to evaluate, integrate, evaluate evidence gleaned from multiple sources (audio, video, and print media).

  • Design written and oral tasks that require students to advance an argument (persuasion) or explain or shed light on a topic (explanatory)

Why transition to cc

Why transition to CC?

  • NYSED Mandate

  • LOTE AP and IB Exams are already aligned to CC

  • If we don’t define how Common Core Standards are integrated with LOTE instruction, someone else will!

What if we used our texts (audio, video, & print) to serve as prompts or sources for our speaking and writing tasks?

Proposed WL Themes



Lote common core modules

Let’s get started....

  • First think about what the important skills and big ideas students will walk away with

  • Determine what students should be able to do with the language at the end of the unit.

  • Select the resources that will be used.

  • Plan the tasks for those resources.

Lote common core modules

What will you need?

Lots and lots of texts!




Short stories






Lote common core modules

Unit theme: Social Relationships

NYS Syllabus topic:Meal taKing

Essential question for Meal taking:

Why is the relationship between what we eat and good health?

Enduring understanding:Students will understand that when and what we eat can affect the quality of our lives.

Students will understand that geography and culture influence our diet and meal taking preferences.

Context for unit and summative assessment: A new company has been hired to manage the school cafeteria and is asking the students for their suggestions on how to better meet their dietary needs.

Finding resources

My search process:

*Google sentences in the target language relating to your topic or perhaps what you think a student might write or say about this topic. comidas favoritas; comidas saludables, el desayuno es la comida más importante, por qué el desayuno

*I selected “blogs” as the type of media I wanted to search

Youtube and Audio-lingua for my audio/visual sources

Finding resources..


* Collect many more than you need

* Select the ones to be used in class and then set aside those you will use in the CC IPA.

* Determine the vocabulary and grammar they will need to negotiate these sources – pick your resources so they are using similar vocabulary and structure

* Make a list of the academic vocabulary they will need – this will depend on resources and the tasks: “according to the article”, “in my opinion”, “the majority”, “the percentage”

Learning activities

Prior to CC activities: Introduce/review vocabulary & structure needed for topic and unit activities

Interpretive Audio: Students will listen to several brief audio clips of people describing what they have for breakfast. Students will have a handout with pictures of various foods and be asked to write the name of the speaker next to the food items she mentions.

Clip 1: Katrina

Clip 2: Irene

Interpretive Viewing: Students view Youtube clip from Spain presenting the importance of a healthy breakfast: they circle or list the foods recommended for a healthy breakfast in the clip,make notes about differences between foods depicted in video and those of a typical “American” breakfast

Presentational writing task: An exchange student from Spain will be staying with you for a few days. In order to make him feel at home and based on the video, write a note to your mother telling her the foods she might want to buy or prepare for him to eat for breakfast.

Interpretive Reading: Students read an articleabouta healthy breakfast and have to list the foods recommended for a healthy breakfast and classify them (fats,dairy, etc)

* INTERPRETIVE AUDIO/VIDEO: Students view a clip or listen to an audio presenting the need for a good breakfast. Task requires them to identify the elements of a good breakfast and reasons for needing a good breakfast.

* INTERPRETIVE READING: Students read an ad describing the benefits of a good breakfast for students. Students demonstrate understanding by matching images to benefits.
