In Anaheim Elementary School District, our core audience is English learners. Tier one instruction must be designed to meet the needs of at least 80% of students which typically includes English learners. While all students benefit from Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI), English learners need EL scaffolds in conjunction with EDI. With Research Based Lesson Design (RBLD), English learner strategies are planned for every instructional phases of EDI. For a one page printable handout of the EL scaffolds in RBLD, click here.
Both Concept Development and Guided Practice are taught using a gradual release of responsibility.
For lesson planning, the sequence that RBLD phases are planned differs from the order in which they are taught. Grade level teams are encouraged to collaborate in planning lessons. A lesson using RBLD can be planned using different formats. Some possible options are in a PowerPoint, on paper and pencil, on a poster, or using this optional template (Click “File,” then “Make a copy.”) Contact your Curriculum Coach for any support.
