Among the most important aspects of English language proficiency development are the integration of ELL cultural values and beliefs into instruction and the differentiation of instruction to address specific learning needs of all students.
For this assignment, you will create an English language arts lesson plan that integrates the cultural values and beliefs of ELLs and utilizes components of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template” and the “Class Profile,” create at least one learning objective for your chosen level of students between grades K-12 that aligns with both Arizona ELP and ELA standards.
Your lesson plan should include:
Differentiated instructional strategies and learning activities to address students’ language differences, giftedness, and special education needs (as listed on the “Class Profile”)
Incorporation of technology to support English language development
Formative and summative assessments for the learning activities
Your lesson plan must clearly express how the teacher will represent the concepts to be taught, how ELLs will express what they are learning, and how they will be engaged throughout the lesson.
