The Kerr & Nelson (2010) and the Otten and Tuttle (2004) texts have slightly different, yet not conflicting components or steps to a lesson plan, which are compared in the table below. You have also been provided with an example lesson plan  for Walking in Line from Otten and Tuttle (2004) .
Review all three and write your own lesson plan for one of the expectations included in your rules-within-routines matrix.
