Aligned with its 1998 standards for first and second language learning, Alberta Learning has published lesson plans that aim for a closer relationship between learning and evaluation. Each volume in this series presents a specific task for students that involves planning, carrying out and evaluating their work. The task for eighth grade students who are learning French as a second language is to read several texts on the topic of "inventions" and to respond to questions. The guidebook has four parts: a Teacher's Guide, Student Materials, Examples of Student Work, and Pedagogic Notes. The Teacher's Guide introduces the objectives for the project in terms of the reading process and the content of the lesson, specific guidelines for introducing and directing the project, and grading criteria. The Student Materials include directions for the project, the articles to be read, and questions for comprehension and reflection. The third section presents examples of students' notes and answers to the questions followed by an evaluation of their responses. Finally, the Pedagogic Notes include goals and principles for the teacher to keep in mind throughout the project, notes on the levels of linguistic production and sophistication of ideas that students should achieve at the intended grade level, and an analysis of the thinking and writing process from the Examples of Student Work. A second lesson plan in the same four-part format has the students create a comic strip on the basis of their research of an inventor. (JSS)
