    World Languages Children's Literature-based Lesson Plans
World Languages Resources for K-12 Teachers and Parents

Following the Central Jersey World Languages Professional Development Institute held in the summer of 1999, institute participants were allowed to apply to be teacher leaders in several areas of foreign language instruction. Nine teacher leaders were selected to pursue intensive training in the use of children’s literature in the foreign language classroom, specifically in the design and implementation of thematic lesson planning. Meeting for three days in October, 1999, three days in March, 2000, and three days in June, 2000, these teacher leaders studied various aspects of using children’s literature and then designed the units that are found in the following pages.
