While Tools 1 and 2 help teachers identify ultimate content/language objectives, this tool allows them to realistically differentiate their language expectations for students at lower proficiency levels. In this way, they can guide students towards achievement of content objectives as they continue to work towards development of their academic language.
This tool is intended for the teacher. It begins with identification of the content objectives and progresses towards the definition of language objectives (primarily vocabulary objectives) that are attainable for students at A2 and B1 levels. Thus, the language level is adjusted, but the content learning objectives remain the same.
