Sequencing Tasks

This section of the ATESL Curriculum Framework builds on previous sections. Section1: Determining Needs provides details about using information gathered from needs analyses to inform curricular choices regarding learning outcomes, materials, tasks and activities, and assessments that best address the needs of learners. Section2: Setting and Assessing Outcomes focuses on how to write learning outcome statements and how to assess those outcomes. This section, Sequencing Tasks, then, addresses identified learning needs and learning outcomes in instructional activities. In this section, we

• Identify tasks as an integrated, connected element of the curriculum.
• Provide principles for sequencing tasks.
• Present task-based, theme-based, and project-based learning as approaches to sequencing content and contextualizing language forms and functions within the curriculum.
