Planning with purpose leads to effective instruction. This course takes learners through a variety of planning processes that align closely to pre-established learning goals, objectives, state and national standards. In addition, working knowledge of current and best instructional planning design specific to ELLs, along  with the preparation that goes behind it, will highlight reflection and development. Participants will work new ideas into planning with specific purposes and ends in mind as they work out of and into the Marzano (2001) Nine Categories in Instructional Planning.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Develop and build upon understanding and knowledge of ELL students.
  • Suggest high instructional outcomes that move ELL students toward specific ends and purposes.
  • Demonstrate the ability to locate planning resources and resources to work into planning.
  • Demonstrate utility with resources that aid in the planning of coherent instruction for English language learners.
