The growing diversity of American schools requires that teachers are able to plan and implement lessons that capitalize on students' strengths, interests and understandings (Noguera, 2003; Milner, 2009). As such, teacher education programs have an obligation to instill in teacher candidates a vision of inclusive education while providing them with a framework for the application of these ideas into practice (John, 2006; Causton-Theoharis, Theoharis, & Trezek, 2008). This article explores a lesson planning structure called the Planned Learning Experience (PLE) that is currently being used at a private university in Western New York. After exploring its rationale, this article deconstructs the components and theoretical framework of the PLE and its implications for learners.
