b. Describe the alignment with language and literacy standards.
c. Describe the lesson procedure. This should be detailed so that another teacher could use this to implement the lesson.
d. Explain strategies to support children learning a second language.
e. Explain modifications for students with special needs.
f. Identify appropriate materials. Use the textbook and at least one outside resource, with citations in APA format.
g. Create an assessment plan. How will you measure improvement?
Your one- to two-page lesson plan (in addition to the title and reference pages) should utilize the template and be in-depth so another reader would know exactly what to do it they were teaching the lesson. It must be formatted according to APA style, citing two to three scholarly resources (including the course text). Since you will be using a template, it is not necessary to include a title and cover page.
