Planning is a key element in enriching and enlarging teachers’ repertoires and ensuring effective instruction that supports students’ academic achievement. Drawing on practices from many different areas of education in the United States and throughout the world, Planning for Learning presents an approach to lesson planning and evaluation that will work in today’s diverse school settings. A rich resource for professional development, this book demonstrates collaborative lesson planning for teachers at particular career phases—preservice, novice, and experienced. Chapters include descriptions of valuable strategies, along with examples of teachers’ responses.
