Assessment Description

It is important for all students, especially students with disabilities, to be exposed to content-based lessons that promote critical thinking and problem solving. There are many areas that a student may struggle in when it comes to mastering complex mathematical tasks. For this reason, it is imperative that teachers are equipped with various instructional strategies for handling these situations.

Part 1: Operation and Algebraic Thinking Lesson Plan

Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template,” design a lesson for the 1-5 grade level of your choice and a corresponding Arizona or other state math standard within the Operation and Algebraic Thinking domain.

Locate four lesson plans that focus on your chosen grade level and math standard from four different websites to review.

Using the lesson plans as resources, design a new operation and algebraic thinking lesson plan that encourages critical thinking. The lesson plan must include differentiated strategies for students who struggle with perception and attention as well as differentiation strategies for students who struggle with memory and retrieval.

Part 2: Instructional Strategies Rationale

In 250-500 words, reflect upon your instructional choices and rationalize the appropriateness of each strategy related to the specified student needs and learning target. Describe how each strategy encourages critical thinking specific to your lesson.

Support your choices with this topic's readings and a minimum of two scholarly resources. In addition, cite the websites you used as references to develop your lesson plan.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, sold academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE

Section 1: Lesson Preparation

 Teacher Candidate Name: Grade Level: Date: Unit/Subject: Instructional Plan Title: Lesson Summary and Focus: In 2-3 sentences, summarize the lesson, identifying the central focus based on the content and skills you are teaching. Classroom and Student Factors/Grouping: Describe the important classroom factors (demographics and environment) and student factors (IEPs, 504s, ELLs, students with behavior concerns, gifted learners), and the effect of those factors on planning, teaching, and assessing students to facilitate learning for all students. This should be limited to 2-3 sentences and the information should inform the differentiation components of the lesson. National/State Learning Standards: Review national and state standards to become familiar with the standards you will be working with in the classroom environment. Include the standards with the performance indicators and the standard language in its entirety. Specific Learning Target(s)/Objectives: Learning objectives are designed to identify what the teacher intends to measure in learning. These must be aligned with the standards. When creating objectives, a learner must consider the following: · Who is the audience · What action verb will be measured during instruction/assessment · What tools or conditions are being used to meet the learning What is being assessed in the lesson must align directly to the objective created. This should not be a summary of the lesson, but a measurable statement demonstrating what the student will be assessed on at the completion of the lesson. For instance, “understand” is not measureable, but “describe” and “identify” are. For example: Given an unlabeled map outlining the 50 states, students will accurately label all state names. Academic Language In this section, include a bulleted list of the general academic vocabulary and content-specific vocabulary you need to teach. In a few sentences, describe how you will teach students those terms in the lesson. Resources, Materials, Equipment, and Technology: List all resources, materials, equipment, and technology you and the students will use during the lesson. As required by your instructor, add or attach copies of ALL printed and online materials at the end of this template. Include links needed for online resources.
