5.5c Integrating Authentic Content to Asynchronous Learning Plan-ST Summer 20201

You are ready to design the learning for your students again! You should make use of the STARTALK Learning Plan that you previously developed for your synchronous microteaching, modifying or expanding on your previous learning episode. Below is Nicole Naditz’s sample learning plan, you can see how Nicole could have used it in the development of her sample asynchronous lesson as in 5.4a.

Activity Details

Begin your learning plan


  1. Create one lesson in StarTalk Create.
  2. Design one lesson for NOVICE learners with little-no experience with your target language! Don’t forget to “Save” your work in STARTALK Create.
    1. IMPORTANT: Remember that the lesson you are working on is intended for NOVICE learners. You can use the same topic that you have developed for Module 3-4 synchronous microteaching, and continue developing a following-up learning episode. As in the first learning episode, you will teach one learning episode from this lesson You will reflect, receive feedback and refine the learning episode for the next time it will be presented.
    2. For the second teaching experience, you design only ONE teaching experience, which is NO more than 10 minutes long, including the checks for understanding. Since FlipGrid will NOT accept a video longer than 10 minutes, it is important not to exceed this time limit.
  3. Lesson planning resources: See a sample lesson plan and another lesson plan provide stages 1, 2, 3 on developing a lesson
  4. Plan on using the information that you learned within this module. Select at least two authentic resources. Materials should include meaningful digital media, realia, and prompts. You will also design any slides (Google Slides, PPT, etc.) or media that you need for your lesson.
  5. Your asynchronous learning episode and wizer learning activity will be evaluated by the following criteria, which will guide your planning: 
  1. Maintaining target language
  2. Checking for student comprehension
  3. Providing learners opportunities to produce language
  4. Technology use
  5. How the lesson you watched will influence the asynchronous lesson you are developing.
  1. Once you complete the CREATE learning plan, save and print your lesson plan as a pdf file. You will publish your lesson plan after you refine it based on feedback from your group lead, and after your microteaching.
  2. Submit your CREATE learning plan as a pdf file by February 11.
