Before you explore this site....


I put some of my most useful lesson plans together in a web site, in case that Italian teachers around the world are looking for ideas for their classes.  Some activities are based on exercises from textbooks, some others are created to enlarge a topic that's been taught in class.  Although most of the activities are for Italian classes, some might be applied to other foreign languages.  Also, I will be posting news and more activities in the section “My posts”.  I will be happy to include helpful suggestions coming from foreign language teachers.  If you’d like to share a useful activity, contact me and I will gladly publish it.


Il premio Nobel per la Pace 2014

News of the week: the Nobel Peace Prize to Malala and Sathyarti.  I came up with a lesson for my AP Italian class that covers the piece of news, focuses on the human rights (Themes: Global Challenges & Personal and Public Identities).  I also added some language activities on the presentation that Roberto Benigni gave about the Italian Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
