Snapshot: Your teachers’ lesson plans may be filled with clever and even inspired activities. But this doesn’t mean students are learning what they need to learn. Nor is it a guarantee that students are making needed progress.
To be effective, a lesson plan needs to be aligned with curriculum goals and to be built on research-based strategies, feedback, formative assessment and student engagement.
In this webinar, Jane Pollock shows you how to use the GANAG schema for writing lesson plans that increase student achievement. Jane co-presents with two teachers who have used the schema to successfully increase student achievement. GANAG is an approach to writing a lesson plan that is focused on feedback, formative assessment and student engagement.
Participants will learn how to deliver a lesson using GANAG and how to engage students with interactive notebooks and with objective score sheets used as a goal-setting tool. In addition, teachers will learn to formatively assess students and use those data to make instructional changes.
Jane developed the GANAG approach by updating Madeline Hunter’s 7-point template for writing lesson plans. Find out how you can build better lesson plans by using a tool that is being adopted by many schools and districts across the U.S. and Canada.
