A learning map is similar to a five step lesson plan in that includes elements of instruction. Elements of instruction include materials and procedures, two of the most important parts of a lesson plan.
A learning map contains UDL elements and classroom management strategies. A lesson plan does not.
Learning maps also refer to “Learner” is the student and “Target” are the standards and objectives.
A learning map contains the following:
Uses the guiding questions
Use what is already known about the Learner,
Create Target (standards, including ELD standards, goals, objectives)
Barriers to learning
Learner misconceptions about target
Whole group needs; focus student needs
Write Instructional plan—include materials and procedure
Create Assessment—formal and informal
I’ve created a lesson plan for close reading for all grade levels at http://www.commoncorestandardslinks.com/2014/09/grade-1-8-ccssclose-reading.html
Note that the lesson plan contains many elements from a learning map. Lesson plans are more commonly used in school districts.
I have a lesson plan template at http://www.commoncorestandardslinks.com/2016/09/lesson-plan-template.html
