Coming Up in EL in Summer 2021 (Online-Only): Innovative Lesson Planning

Prepare to plan your most powerful lessons ever! EL's digital-only Summer 2021 issue on Innovative Lesson Planning will be available in late June. Articles—which will all be open-access—will share insights on how to plan innovative lessons that boost student learning—by voices including Jay McTighe, Sue Brookhart, Monica Burns, and Lee Ann Jung. The issue will tackle what's new, what's working, and what's not when it comes to lesson planning, particularly how to adapt lesson development and delivery in light of the pandemic and switch to remote learning.
