Planning for Engagement in a Module Lesson

Focus Area: EL Education

Instructional Coaches, Teachers

Phase: Planning

Available July 2024


Classroom cultures built on trust, safety, challenge, and joy are an essential foundation for learning with EL Education. Teachers can explicitly plan to include students in the learning process, create space for reflection and growth, along with encouragement to persevere through challenges. In this Modules Planning session, participants will plan for a culture of grappling and the habits of character that foster engagement in a lesson.


I plan for Module lessons based on curriculum supports and student needs.
