I am working this summer to update my classroom lesson plans with the new ASCA Mindsets. I also indicate our State and Local standards for each lesson. I include learning and language objectives for each lesson as well. Most of my lessons are guided with a PowerPoint or SMART Notebook outline. I always take a book into the class just in case the technology is not working. I have been trained to share the lesson objectives in kid friendly "I can" statements so students are clear in advance what they will be learning and what they will be expected to do.
