1 Laurette Carle Williamson County Schools

2  Reflect and Brainstorm ◦ What concepts or topics do I want to fold into my teaching this year? ◦ What concepts or topics align best with the standards for my subject or grade level? ◦ What concepts or topics will help my students develop their critical thinking skills?

3  Choose one topic or concept to be the “big idea” or “essential understanding” that you hope to convey to your students  Write your big idea at the top of the planning worksheet provided

4  Which standards will I target?  How much time will I spend on this?  How can I connect this to students’ prior knowledge or experiences?  How can I engage or hook them at the start of this unit of study?  What do I expect them to know and be able to do by the end of this unit of study?  What assessments will I use to measure their progress?

5 Think about the variety necessary for a balanced approach to assessment: Formal and Informal Formative and Summative Traditional and Authentic

6  What teaching strategies might I use to help the students reach these learning targets?  What resources will I use?  What are some possible ways I can differentiate ◦ The content (for different abilities)? ◦ The instruction (for different learning styles)?

7 You can’t finalize your plans until you know each of your students!  Know their interests – helps with motivation  Know their learning profile – helps your efficiency if you choose the instructional strategy that matches best  Know their level of readiness to learn – pre- assessments help set targets for growth

8  We understand it’s only a start  We know it’s a work in progress  We want to see how this week’s learning experience might impact your students  You will turn in your plan tomorrow ◦ Handwritten sketch, or ◦ Electronic copy emailed to lynn.d.mcdonald@vanderbilt.edu lynn.d.mcdonald@vanderbilt.edu
