CCSS: Adaptable
Instructional Ideas
  • Content lends itself to a discussion about mindfulness; while writers brainstorm ideas through meditation-like settings, they also use such settings to lessen anxiety and stress
  • Use a model description to set expectations before activity
Classroom Considerations
  • Plans indicate there is no assessment, but if you want to check understanding, collect the descriptive paragraphs to see if individuals mastered the CCSS 
  • Visualization activity gives learners time to think creatively and about their topics
  • Guided questions for activity are all-inclusive
  • Lesson wants educators to play music while students engage in visualizing activity; this may be distracting for certain individuals
