With Jodi Mckenzie
Today's episode is a little different than the previous long-form episodes. We go back to our previous guest - Jodi McKenzie - and she shares a lesson she started in the fall with her students and she breaks that lesson down from the beginning middle and the overall end result. This lesson is from an English II teacher, but you could adapt this lesson to any subject. I hope you enjoy this brief lesson overview from Jodi, and if you have any feedback, please email me.

Mrs. McKenzie provided a simple format for this letter to give the students an outline and template.
