     There are three components to help you plan          Planning Key   Components
     your lessons: the Teacher's Edition, the Program
     Resources and Teacher Express.

     Teacher's Edition...
     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)
     -Section Assessment
     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
     "Chapter Assessment".

     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
     Teach" pages
     have suggestions                                                     for more PD
     from the authors,
     a summary of the                                                      Reading
     key concepts for
     the topic area and                                                    Strategy
     other information
     to help you
             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
     lesson framework with ways to
     "Engage" your students,
     "Explore" the content and
     "Assess" learning.

     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.

     Teaching Resources...
     There are lesson plans, for each section,
     available in the Lesson Plan book.

     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.
