Your Task for Today

Today, your goal is to use the Planning for Learning Protocol to create at least one lesson plan cycle. Please remember that these plans will be shared, so write this lesson using specifics so that others can follow it. Include any needed attachments with your plan. Then, please post the lesson plan in the appropriate lesson plan bank. See the section on posting for specific instructions on posting to the bank.

In the resources section below, you will see videos that will help you should you need a refresher on the Planning for Learning protocol or on Forethought. There are also examples of lesson plan templates for the workshop model of instruction,.

Posting to the Lesson Plan Bank

To be able to post you must be logged into your account.

To post to the lesson plan bank, please click the appropriate button below (labeled by grade level). Then, choose "add to drive." The picture below is a screenshot of what this looks like. Open the folder you would like to save to.

Upload your files to your drive, then drop them into the shared folders so we can all see them. Note: if you are uploading a Word document to the google drive, formatting can be messed up during the process. To circumvent this, consider creating a PDF out of your word document.

Please name your file by campus number and topic. (For example 041_Inferencing). Make sure you add all attachments that are required to your file.
