1. Read Biliteracy from the Start chapter 8 and 9 or 10 (The last two chapters present planning examples which will help you with the lesson plans. Chapter 9 presents an example from Kindergarten and 10 presents an example from grade 5. Choose the chapter that fits the degree to which they teach).
2. Use the Literacy Squared Lesson Plan Template and work on the Yellow Highlighted sections. (USE this template to complete the English part of the 5 lesson plans). It should only be filling out the texts with the activities (They are highlighted).
3.Design a cycle of 5 integrated lessons in each language (Spanish & English) using the template (in total 10 lessons). — Writer will only do the lesson plans in English which are highlighted.
NOTE: In chapter 10, the author provides pictures of how the lesson activities can be by using texts. The template is originally for the 10 lessons (5 in English and 5 in Spanish). (See Chapter 10 for an example on how to fill out the template.) The lessons must be different but connect in both languages. Cannot translate the lesson from Spanish to English (They have to be different.) Remember, the student would be stronger in Spanish when creating the lessons and please include books from (free website and grades 1-6).
