Finding Lessons for Your Needs

Finding a Lesson in this Book

One of the challenges of compiling the lessons in a book is deciding how to organize the lessons. We realize that readers will have different interests and needs. So we have “tagged” the lessons in three different ways, according to:

  1. lesson objectives,
  2. targeted learner age, and,
  3. targeted Gaelic level.

It is worth noting, nevertheless, that each lesson creator has suggested lesson variations that would make the lesson applicable to other categories. In other words, don’t dismiss a lesson just because it’s not tagged with something you’re looking for. While these lessons have been designed so that they can be used “out of the box,” we also intend them to inspire variations or entirely new lessons. We hope that you will adapt the lessons for your own context, drawing on the lesson structures and principles as possibilities for your own teaching.

Within each tag category, there are three tags. For the sake of the organization of this book, we asked lesson creators to limit themselves to a single tag from each category, even though some of the lessons could be tagged with more than one.
