It's a well-thought of Instructional Plan. Very comprehensive one. It includes a lot of competencies to be developed the the students. Really good for a unit plan. However, I am looking for a lesson plan using the DRTA strategy that is good for 60 minute period only. I wish you could give us example. Thanks.
