You have been added to this online workshop because you were unable to participate in the face-to-face version. Due to the manner in which this session is being delivered, you will be unable to actively participant with others. However, every attempt to "capture" the essential elements of the face-to-face version has been made. During this online session you will "dissect" a sample lesson in order to identify its parts, and learn a process you can use to plan lessons. You will also have the option to submit your lesson plan for review.
