I highly recommend this course!
Peggy Franklin
This class reminded me of the thirty features of SIOP and how to critique lessons as I teach and observe others in my building. Content and language objectives should be written, verbalized, and explained to students. Self-reflection is helpful for students and staff to measure their metacognition.
