From my FREE basic Weekly Lesson Plan Template, I created a vastly improved product. This two-page Word document is completely fillable and expandable, breaking down your lesson into highly effective portions, with space for identifying needs of specific students, homework, bell-ringers, Essential Question and objectives, and the questions you want to ask.
The BEST FEATURE, though, is page two: A fairly comprehensive checklist of differentiation strategies and techniques! Culled from Kagan, Eric Jensen, Discovery Ed SOS, SIOP and AVID, these structures and protocols are listed to help the teacher identify new and varied instructional strategies to engage all learners. Tons of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening Structures to support and engage your English Language Learners.
This document was created on the newest version of Word. Depending on your version, you may simply be able check mark the strategies you intend to employ for the week. You may also need to double click on the checkbox and mark "checked" in the pop up. I've added a couple of blank check boxes so that you can put in other strategies, and of course, the whole document is completely editable. You can make it your own!
