For the second episode in the mini-lesson series, I am going to share with you my five step process to planning an effective mini-lesson. I promise that these five steps are not as hard as you think they are. Even better, they will give you confidence that you can deliver an effective mini-lesson to your students!
If you have never used mini-lessons or feel like you can use a refresher course, you’ve come to the right place. I will walk you through the steps to making your mini-lesson beneficial and structured no matter what your goal is. I’ll even provide examples of some of my favorite texts to use for specific standards. Come back next week for even more tips on how to plan and execute a mini-lesson!
