This is an ELA lesson planning template. It follows a gradual release framework. It was adapted from the ELA lesson plan template provided by NCDPI via the VIK.
This template encourages thoughtful planning based on state and national standards. It includes DOK Question Stems for levels 1-3 to help in formulating questions for the lesson. Delete the questions you don't use before printing.
This template supports STEM teachers and librarians in working collaboratively to create lessons that build science practice and STEM inquiry skills in alignment with state and national science standards, and that address the Common Core literacy shifts around close reading and building textual evidence.
