Lesson Planning and Lesson Designing

What is the difference?

How do the "what" (content) and the "how" (lesson activities) go hand in hand?

The learning experience (movement, manipulations, visuals, auditory components, collaboration, technologies, etc) are what make the content engaging and relative to students. All of those design experiences (how) must be planned with the content (what) so that it all flows and makes sense for the learners. The article below is a great kick start to that reflection process. I encourage you to read it and reflect on your planning and designing.
