Language students learn best when given the opportunity to communicate meaningful content in realistic settings. Providing those realistic contexts hasn't always been easy, but as this book emphatically demonstrates technology can help. Current Internet- and software-based technologies offer authentic, individualized interactions with members of the target language community - precisely the kind of interaction that leads to the biggest gains in proficiency. Months' worth of lesson plans and activities show you how to use the best of these technology tools to build content-based curricula for all ages and languages, and simultaneously address critical technology and content area standards.


Dozens of lesson plans on CD-ROM that can be used as stand-alone activities or month-long curriculum plans
Introductory essays on technology integration and foreign language standards, performance assessment, and distance learning
Interdisciplinary links, teaching tips, lesson extenders, and assessment rubrics for each unit
