Diverse learners week 4 journal


Modify a Lesson Plan


From one of the three websites listed in the required readings, find a lesson plan addressing any content area you wish. Analyze the plan and determine whether it is an effective approach for English language Learners (ELLs). If it is, tell why by addressing how it is differentiated, how sheltered instruction is used, and how the plan applies strategies for ELLs and English as second language (ESL) learners. If it is not, modify the plan to include the components previously mentioned.
