Lesson Plans (Purpose) • Purpose– must cover content of class – needs to be relevant to students – examples: • This lesson will help students understand the migration of humpback whale as it relates to the fishing industry • This lesson will explain to students how to perform subtraction problems with 0-9 subtrahends. • Students will learn the differences between Gore’s and Bush’s education policies Lesson Plans (Objectives) • Objectives– match purpose – Measurable and observable – include time frame • example - At the end of the lesson, the students will answer 10 subtraction questions on a teacher made test with 100% accuracy using hands-on manipulatives • Write an objective for teaching a student to read words that start with the /r/ sound. Lesson Plan (Materials and time span) • Materials– Must be appropriate for the student’s age and academic level – only use accessible teacher materials • example: plastic cups, thin rope, cut-out letters, flip cards for pluses and minus, toothpicks • (nothing possibly dangerous) – must be readily available for ease of transitions • example: If computer based, state where computers are located. • What are pros and cons for using hands-on materials? Lesson Plan (Procedures) • Should use previous knowledge (schema) • Must apply to the measurable objectives • Can work as assessment or independent from assessment. • Should be observable • Age and grade appropriate Teaching strategies (Mercer & Mercer, 1998) • Advanced Organizer • I do it • We do it • You do it • Feedback Lesson Plan (Assessment) • Must match the objective • Know how to assess and the needed criteria for independence at each task. • Must be observable • What would you use to assess these: – Reading a passage with proper pronunciation on /th/ and /sh/ sounds. – Recall 10 important dates of WWII. – Solve addition problems with 0-9 addends? Lesson Plan (Analysis of mastery) • Evaluation criteria – Grade listings – Requirements: • Below 80%- need for revision • Between 80%-90%- continue at this level • Above 90%- move on to multiple variables – Feedback planned: • Follow-up in class or out of class planned. When is 100% not appropriate for mastery Application • Design a lesson plan for teaching how to learn the differences between the words: – Shirt; ship; think; thick. • Design a lesson plan for teaching addition with 5’s. • Design a lesson plan for teaching the parts of insects. Summary • What components should be included in a lesson plan. • Objectives should be ___________ and ________________. • Educational materials should be _________.
