Essential Lesson Components

From session with Faye Brownlie.
  1. Essential Question / Learning Intention / Big Idea
  2. Open-ended strategies – for students to connect, process, and transform
  3. Differentiation – choice is built into at least one facet of the learning
  4. Assessment for Learning
  5. Gradual Release of Responsibility

Remember to attend to students!
Can easily focus just on the delivery:)

    I’m putting together a list of the top 100 high school/secondary school teacher blogs and your site was recommended by another blogger on the list. I was wondering if I could interview you via e-mail so I could include more information in my article. Please e-mail me at and include the title of your blog in the e-mail, thank you!!
