Developing Dynamic Units for EFL
Shin, Joan Kang
English Teaching Forum, v45 n2 p2-8 2007
"Developing Dynamic Units for EFL" describes how to develop a thematic unit that integrates skills in context, provides opportunities for learner autonomy, and is project-based and experiential. Planning includes identifying curriculum standards, thinking of a meaningful topic, brainstorming tasks, organizing the activities, and making use of learner choice. The sample unit "Eating Out with Friends" includes the topics of inviting friends; choosing a restaurant and making a reservation; finding and communicating directions; ordering and requesting the bill; and thanking friends and retelling the story.
