  • Sample lesson plans, templates, and examples
  • New chapters on collaboration, online instruction, and reflection

There are countless approaches to planning a lesson, and myriad factors to consider: lesson objectives, types and length of activities, materials needed, student grouping…the list goes on. This essential guide will equip you with the knowledge and confidence you need to create effective, connected lesson plans for your multilingual learners of English.
