Student Learning Outcomes

educational technology. For example, collaborate with educational partners to support
student learning.

SLO #3: Apply instructional design principles to locate, evaluate and develop
educational materials

This class is very diverse and made up of EO, RFEP, and low EL students. In my

presentation, I will begin the lesson by reviewing the vocabulary so that I frontload the
language they will need to access the information presented. In addition, I will ask
students to engage in constructive conversations using sentence frames to guide the
discussion. I will group the students that need translation together in the front to
support them with translation. I will also include a presentation that integrates images
and video for second language learners.
