Powerful Lesson Planning Models: The Art of 1,000 Decisions. The Mindful School. K-College.
Skowron, Janice
This book offers teachers guidance in the task of lesson planning, providing four instructional design models: basic, integrated, differentiated, and problem-based. The models are progressively complex and nuanced, providing teachers with guidance as they increase their lesson-planning proficiency. The book includes a series of key questions and a step-by-step process to developing instructional plans. The instructional plan emerges as the teacher contemplates key questions and makes decisions related to them. Descriptive information and instructional design tools (key questions, outlines, templates, and examples) are provided to facilitate the planning process. The book includes planning guides for each of the four instructional designs. Each instructional design planning guide features three sections: desired results, lesson design, and evidence of learning. An appendix presents teaching standards from the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. (Contains 70 bibliographic references.) (SM)
