Module 3: How can technology help you create lesson plans? Activator: The unprepared teacher The lesson plans objectives are clear and measurable Activity 1: Practice writing behavioral objectives Student Discussion- Ramsay Musallam: 3 rules to spark learning Activity 2: Assignment 2 - How to create a lesson plan template you can use. Summarizer: Make a sample lesson plan HW: – Complete Assignment 2 – Find and review a web resource
The first year is not easy 180 days – 540 to 1080 lessons over the course of your first year – If each lesson takes a 30 to 45 minutes to write, then you are talking 500 hours of lesson planning. – That’s 20 days of round the clock planning – That’s 12.5 hours of lesson planning a week during your first year. – Planning is your new part-time job – And we haven’t even started talking about the correcting! If we can save you just 5 minutes each lesson plan, we can shave 66 hours ( or 2.75 days) off of that lesson planning time during your first year.
Save time by getting good at the basics Have clear behavioral objectives Use a lesson plan template
Writing behavioral objectives is as simple as ABC 1. A ctivity (a statement that describes your planned activity.) 2. B ehavioral Verb (an action word that denotes an observable student behavior. Remember, those that are doing the work are doing the learning.) 3. C riteria (a statement that specifies how well the student must perform the behavior).
Writing instructional objectives 1.Activity (a statement that describes your planned activity.) – Given the WWII project, – Given the math manipulative the student will, (this means the student is actually given something that will be used to perform the behavior). – Upon request the student will (this means the student is given an oral or written request to do something).
Writing behavioral objectives 2. Behavioral Verb (an action word that denotes an observable student behavior) – The verb in a behavioral objective is an action word that shows what the student will do. ClassifyDiagram ComposeEstimate ConstructIdentify DefineLocate DemonstratePredict DescribeSolve
Original Terms New Terms Evaluation Synthesis Analysis Application Comprehension Knowledge Creating Evaluating Analyzing Applying Understanding Remembering (Based on Pohl, 2000, Learning to Think, Thinking to Learn, p. 8)
Writing behavioral objectives 3. Criteria (a statement that specifies how well the student must perform the behavior). Given a worksheet of the first 100 numbers arranged in ascending order (activity), the student will identify (verb) at least nine prime numbers (criteria).
SMART Goals By June 2015, all 9th grade students under my direct supervision will have improved their strategic reading scores by 3 points as measured by the school’s strategic reading rubric. Progress will be monitored via student’s average strategic reading score every term. For each Modern World History unit, I will foster communication between students and parents about ways student can improve their performance based upon student meta-cognitive assessments of their skill development. Progress will be monitored every unit by looking at item analysis, student growth charts, and skill rubric scores (reading, writing and research).
Behavioral Objective Mad-Lib Given _________, students (Activity) will successfully ________________ (Behavior) by ________________ (criteria)
Behavioral Objective Mad-Lib Given Assignment 2, students (Activity) will successfully create a lesson plan template (Behavior) by including all elements and making it fully automated. (criteria)
Activity 1: Practice writing behavioral objectives Go back to statements on the Prezi from last week and write two behavioral objectives based on those statements. Use the ABC method and/or the mad lib.
Save time by getting good at the basics Have clear objectives Use a lesson plan template
.Docx vs. Dotx When you open a document in Word and save it, the default extension is.docx. A template is a document type that creates a copy of itself when you open it. In Microsoft Office Word 2007, you can create a template saving a document as a.dotx file
Common Elements Date Instructor’s Name Course/Subject Name and Description (Include length of class, level, etc.) Objectives Standards Addressed (always include state standards, and, when appropriate, district and school standards) Materials Procedures – Activator – Activities – Summarizer Homework (note homework rationale/ connection to lesson) Assessment Sources
