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.


Writing skills_rubric

In the attempt to collect some measurable data and help students become more aware of their writing skills, I came up with a rubric that I have been using with levels II and IV.  Every 6 assignments, I create a graphic and evaluate data with my students, to reflect on their writing skills.
