1 Direct Instruction : Understanding our global world.

As a whole  year plan, as ESL in my private school is one of the few experiences my students have of integrating ICT in their lessons , it is essential that students receive instruction to interact with global audiences in the digital era.

It is part of my PD and the background they have to let them become literate ,safe and responsible in their interactions.
