ECE-340 Topic 7 Assignment Benchmark – Lesson Planning for Literacy

This plan will also identify appropriate learning strategies in the assignment.
Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template,” design a lesson plan to provide instruction on two of the four literacy components (language, listening, speaking, reading, and writing). Create objectives that align to the standards and are developmentally appropriate for your students. You may combine more than one standard in a single learning objective if it makes sense to do so.
