Differentiated 9th Grade Lesson Plan (SEI)

Below is a sample Sheltered English Instruction lesson plan guiding students through reading and identifying the main idea in Pablo Neruda's poem, "Fear." The plan has been differentiated for use with a 9th grade English Language Arts class that includes WIDA Level 3 ELL students; throughout the lesson, all students will be working with a copy of both the English and original Spanish translation of the poem in front of them. This lesson is intended to take place over two, 60-minute class periods.
