Section 12E: Create Lesson Plan #3
It's time to create your third lesson plan!
You can view any of the submitted materials for this course so far at this link! If you wish to update any of your earlier assignments and have us replace them, please message Nathan Smith in Canvas inBox and attach the resubmission there.
You may collaborate with other students in the course for lesson plan 3. If you do, be sure to include all your names on the lesson plan and the group self-assessment. Then each member of the group should submit both in the assignment E12 in Canvas. You've learned some this semester about how to better manage group work. If you work as a group, apply some of these principles, so you work together effectively and well, and no one person carries a majority of the load.
Skills you'll use in lesson plan 3:
- You'll need to be able to save lesson plan resources to your Google Drive and share them with anyone who has a link. (learned in experiences 1 and 2)
- You'll need to include hyperlinks, images, and access to videos, audio, or other lesson plan resources, such as audio or video podcasts. (learned in experiences 4, 6, and 7)
- You'll need to include proof that you can actually use the technologies you integrate into your lesson plan. Typically, this would be a screencast, or developing a product using the technology you've integrated. (learned in experience 3)
- You'll need to consider instructional design principles, such as Gagné's 9 steps for effective instruction, as you develop your lesson plan. (learned in experience 10)
- Consider how you can incorporate student agency, and encourage creativity. (Learned in Experience 12)
- You'll need to save your lesson plan as an interactive PDF file. (learned in experience 4)
Lesson plan 3 requirements (These need to be included in your lesson plan 3):
- Choose a specific objective to have your students master that is relevant to your teaching focus. (http://www.uen.org/core/) It must be a different objective than used in your other lesson plans. I also strongly suggest that you narrow the lesson down to an objective your can teach in one class period (or two if need be).
- Develop your lesson plan! You need to come up with a student engagement strategy that will involve your students relevantly to master the objective. Consider each of these steps of effective instruction in your lesson plan. How could you achieve each in a way that truly engages your students?
- How will you gain their attention and ignite their interest?
- How will you inform them of objective they need to master in a way that is meaningful to them?
- How can you stimulate recall of their prior learning? How can you scaffold this new skill or knowledge to previously learned skills or knowledge?
- How will you present the content in a way that engages them in the learning?
- How will you provide “learning guidance” as they struggle with mastering the objective?
- How will you elicit performance (practice) from them?
- How will you provide feedback on their performance?
- How will you assess their performance? How will you know they've mastered the objective?
- How will you enhance retention and transfer to the job?
- Integrate a technology into your lesson plan that would assist you or your students
- It could be a technology the students use to help them learn and/or master the objective.
- It could be a technology that helps the students gather, analyze, or curate information and resources needed.
- It could be a technology that helps you, the teacher, to observe, track, communicate with, or assess students.
- It could be a technology that helps you deliver learning resources to the students.
- Include relevant images, videos, screencasts, podcasts, hyperlinks in your lesson plan.
- These could include links to rubrics or assessments, screencasts or podcasts you've stored in your Google Drive.
- They could include links out to supporting resources on the internet for your lesson plan.
- Provide proof that you actually understand and can use the technology you've integrated into your lesson. This could be done with a screencast, step-by-step tutorial, building a product with the technology, etc.
- Include a reflection page at the end of your lesson plan where you answer these questions:
- Why do you feel this lesson plan is appropriate for the age you focused on? What are your reasons?
- What SAMR level do you feel the technologies you've integrated falls into? Why?
- How do the technologies you've integrated into your lesson plan assists students with your lesson objective? Or how do the technologies you've integrated into your lesson plan assist you to manage the lesson experience or assess student performance?
- If you collaborated with other student(s) to create this lesson plan, detail how the assignment tasks were divided among your group.
- Save or export your lesson as a PDF file. Name your PDF file E12_Your_Name.pdf.
- When your lesson plan is finished, download the scoring rubric and self-assess your lesson plan. If you collaborated with a group, you should do this together. By that I mean go through the rubric and score it, as if you were the instructor for this course. Put yourself in our shoes, and give yourself a grade on it. Add any comments or thoughts about why you scored it that way in your rubric. Submit your scored self-assessment to us with your lesson plan in the Canvas E12 assignment.
- You may collaborate with other class members on this lesson plan. Be sure that all your names are included on the lesson plan and the scoring rubric. Be sure to divide the task equally among your group, with every person responsible for an important piece. As you learned earlier in the course, collaborate so each person carries their fair share of the load. Each collaborator will submit the same lesson plan and rubric in Canvas for this assignment. All in the group will receive the same score.
- You may adapt a lesson plan idea you find online - but you must not copy it! You will need to adapt it to follow the requirements listed above. It must be your own creation!
- Your lesson plan must be submitted as a multimedia PDF file. (Not a Word document, website, Spark page, etc.)
- Double check your work against the scoring rubric! Have you included everything needed to get a good score?
- As always, help is available if your contact your instructor in Canvas inBox.
