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. Three separate lesson plans in the ninth grade volume on the topic of "French songs" exercise students' listening ability, oral production, and written production. Each lesson plan 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 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 as well as pages for note-taking, answering questions, and evaluation. The third section presents examples of students' notes and writing 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.
