Notes:

1) The content objectives are designed to answer the question “What do you want the students to be able to do at the end of that class?” They never change for me, as they are the overarching goals of my fluency program. I want my students to be able to recognize and understand vocabulary in context.

2) The language objectives are supposed to answer the question, “What are the students going to do to get there?” For me, that is to be able to understand my PQA and story on M/Tu and understand a song on Friday, and on W/Th it means that they will be able to read the embedded reading taken from the story.
