Lesson Plans & SABEA

I met with Ruth and a SABEA rep regarding the daily lesson plan expectation. We'll discuss lesson plans at the next instructional meeting, but here are some key highlights:

1. The lesson plan form that was disseminated is recommended, but not mandatory.

2. Teachers may continue to submit lesson plans in any format that they choose; plans must be completed daily, for each course taught.

3. Plans should include elements of the EI framework and SDI as applicable.

4. We are aware that many teachers are at an acquisition phase of learning the framework - we do not expect perfection. Rather, we expect for teachers to be thoughtful about their instruction and how they can begin to incorporate the elements of Explicit Instruction, as they become more knowledgeable about it.
