Pace Yourself & Plan in Ga Pre-K

It provides best practices for pacing yourself using the available BFTS tools AND a new Pacing Guide (that breaks down monthly goals for the WSO indicators and the GELDS). You will learn a step-by-step, systematic way to approach planning, then observe the system being modeled to create a full week of lesson plans! Teachers who take the course get the Pacing Guide, the combined lesson plan template shown, the full week model lesson plan, a sample schedule, and a handout to reference the strategy shown.
