FALKUŠA (Traditional Fishing Boat)
The falkuša (also called, gajeta falkuše) is a symbol of Croatian maritime heritage. It is a traditional fishing boat from Komiža, a town on the island of Vis. There are only three remaining boats of this kind in the world, and only a few people know how to navigate them. In 1998, falkuša was put on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Read more

2. Outline

At/by the end of the unit, what do you want the student to be able to do with the language?
Final assessment (Scenario): 
You are an international student who is planning a trip with your local friend. You will be asked to negotiate where to go based on everyone’s interests. In your conversation be sure to include why you want to go to your proposed destination, how to get there, who you want to invite, and express your plans/ideas for the trip. Keep in mind that whatever you propose for the trip you will need to have an answer to the question “why” - the goal is to give as much information as possible. The conversation might bring to the table your past travels and experiences as well. The goal is to mimic real life conversation and your instructor (who will be playing the role of your local friend) might expand the conversation to include anything that you mention while performing the task. During this task you might be asked to check the bus/train itinerary to see if there are seats available and at what time you could all leave.   Note: All locations should be authentic and related to the target area.
  Break the goal down into smaller learning targets.
Module 1: I can make arrangements for my trip. I can talk about who is my best travel companion and I can justify my choices.
Module 2: I can search for a bus/train/plane ticket. I can make travel arrangements and buy tickets for my trip. I can discuss means of transportation and make comparisons between them.
Module 3: I can talk about past events and I can talk about my past travel experience.
Module 4: Performance-based final unit assessment
  For each learning target (Modules 1-4), determine a concrete task that will demonstrate that the students have reached it.
Module 1: Based on your personal interests and what you like, plan your vacation. Create a questionnaire for two of your classmates and find out who would be a good companion for your trip. Provide reasons why someone is either a good choice or not a good choice to travel with you.
Module 2: Buy a bus/train/plane ticket. Discuss each other's travel choices and make comparisons between your vacations.
Module 3: Inform your school about your recent travels and experiences so that it can be published on the school's website.
