Return to: ETAP 623 Fall 2020 (Zhang) | Marissa Zuccardo's Portfolio Page | Go to Mini-Course Home
Go back to Unit 3: Developing Activities to Scaffold and Engage Students Continue to Unit 5: Final Unit - Self Reflection and Conclusion
- The participant will create a final lesson plan example focused on pragmatic instruction strategies of their choice.
- The participant will demonstrate their understanding of pragmatic and how it relates to their language education knowledge and experience through a justification/explanation of their created lesson plan.
- The participant will demonstrate their ability and motivation to further educate themselves on pragmatics instruction by navigating the internet to find outside resources and adding sources to a comprehensive final list.
For this unit, we won't be introducing new material on pragmatics instruction. Instead, you will focus on your lesson plan. As instructors, it is likely you already know how to create a lesson plan; however I will provide examples to aid in the process. To create your lesson plan, you should be combining the activities you used in the past three units in addition to the new and existing knowledge you have on language education to come up with a comprehensive mini lesson plan.
Lesson Plan Templates

Tips for Planning
- Choose a speech act or topic to focus on (grammar, vocab, etc.) and build from there.
- Many find it easier to use a grammar point and work off of that.
- Take into account the proficiency level of your students. Do not provide work that is too difficult or too easy for them.
- Provide opportunities for students to relate their native and target cultures.
- Make the activities engaging, age-appropriate, and keep in mind the motivations of your learners.
Additionally you can watch a video with some basic tips below:
- Fill out your activity journal
- Optional: Post your journal response in the Unit 4 discussion board.
