2. Planning... On-Line
There are three components to help you plan Planning Key Components
your lessons: the Teacher's Edition, the Program
Resources and Teacher Express.
The TE has a two-page planning
spread at the beginning of each
It covers the following:
-Pacing and Section Objectives
-Activities and Labs
-Resources (Print & Technology)
There is also a "Planning Key"
to help you find the resources,
as well as lists of " On-Line" Materials for Chapter
components, "Materials for Labs Activities and Labs Assessment
and Activities", and available
To help you differentiate instruction, you'll notice that
every resource listed will indicate which students within
your diverse classroom the resource is aimed towards.
The "Before You Go On-Line

From the Misconceptions
When you open your TE, you'll
see that the Student's Edition is
embedded in the center of the
TE and is surrounded by
information and suggestions for
Teaching and Learning.
Each section is built around a Edition
lesson framework with ways to
"Engage" your students,
"Explore" the content and
You'll find suggestions for incorporating the built-in reading support, building
science skills, using the visuals, differentiating instruction, additional labs and
demos, etc... as well as all the answers to questions encountered in the text.
This is where the lesson planning really starts. Read all of the entries in the wrap-
around and decide which ones will work best for you and your classes. Plan the
sequence you'd like to follow when using these resources with your class. Now it's
time to go on to the lesson plans and the lesson planner.
There are lesson plans, for each section,
available in the Easy Planner.
These lesson plans follow the same three
step approach found in the Teacher's
Edition... Focus, Instruct, Assess.
A brief summary of suggested activities are
found under each heading.
Notice that the resources, listed on the right,
also indicate the L1, L2 or L3 Student Ability
Level as found in the TE.
