This session, part of the Center for Advanced Language Proficiency Education and Research's summer workshop, focuses on the curriculum development of content-based thematic units. The presenter will introduce a framework for developing curricula and guides the participants through the process of designing content-based thematic units. Participants will engage in hands-on demonstration lessons and explore a variety of content-based instructional strategies to promote students' skills in interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have developed their own units to enhance their curricula.
