The purpose of this study was to explore how the use of a planning template among ESL and mainstream co-teachers could increase integration of academic language structures during co-planning. I sought to explore how the use of a template could better integrate academic language during co-planning and share ESL best practices with mainstream teachers. The major findings of the study showed the template kept time focused and student-centered, team dynamics played a pivotal role in the collaboration, and the participants made professional growth in the area of differentiating for ELs. This case study showed how using a co-planning template can create opportunities for purposeful lesson planning in ESL and mainstream collaboration.
