LOTE (2000) sourcebook modules

Sourcebook modules provide teachers with a range of learning and teaching ideas. Teachers are encouraged to modify modules to meet the specific needs and interests of particular groups of students and individual students, their own needs and the learning environment.

The sourcebook modules are available on the CD-ROM and include links to the syllabus, sourcebook guidelines and initial in-service materials. They are designed to help teachers plan, prepare, implement and assess a sequence of learning. Most modules include resource sheets to support the outlined tasks.

The modules also include an audio recording of suggested teacher language spoken by native speakers of the target language to provide models of vocabulary and language structures appropriate to the topic.

Generic module outlines and unit overviews are available on this website as PDF files for the following modules.

Please note that these PDFs do not include the resources, examples of teacher language and detailed notes provided on the CD-ROMs. Any hyperlinks within the PDFs will also not function.

For access to these additional resources, please email
