This curriculum unit was written to be used in a High Intermediate to Advanced ESL class (CASAS scores 211 and above). Prior to teaching this unit, students should have a working knowledge of the World Wide Web and Email. This unit will then help them to understand the process of filling out online applications.
It is also suggested that prior to teaching this unit, possible pre-assessments include two Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment Modules - World Wide Web and Using Email (linked below). Additionally, teachers can use the Observation Rubric (below) to assess their students' prior knowledge.
