I plan to focus on the chapter for each of the eight components of this model. This week I read Chapter 2 Lesson Preparation.
Lesson Preparation is broken down into six features:
- content objectives
- language objectives
- age-appropriate concepts
- supplementary materials
- adaptation of content
- meaningful activities for language practice
Many classrooms have their learning targets displayed prominently. When I prepare an ELL lesson, I need to consider what vocabulary they will need and how they will practice this.
I feel like my strength is using supplementary materials to illustrate the concepts I am teaching. I have never been a fan of highly scripted lessons.
What works well for you?
What questions do you have?
