Designing and completing a lesson plan requires an understanding of each component of the lesson plan and its purpose in the overall instruction for learning. Educators vary in their expectations for lesson plan development, but each element is necessary to provide a lesson that is well thought out, organized, and prepared for all types of students. Lesson plan development requires knowledge of standards, data literacy, and a vision for learning outcomes.
For this assignment, write a 750-1,000 explaining to new teachers how to use the “COE Lesson Plan Template” to create a complete lesson plan.
The work should include:
- Brief description of each section of the template, including why each section is essential to the overall plan (objectives, modeling, guided practice, independent practice, assessment, differentiation).
- Importance of alignment between state standards and instruction.
- How assessment data informs lesson planning and examples of what data could be used.
- Discuss various learning strategies that can be applied to lesson plan writing including, but not limited to, direct instruction, indirect instruction, collaborative learning, experiential learning, independent study, and interactive instruction.
- Examples of differentiation for students with exceptionalities, language barriers, or other challenges.
- Examples of technology integration to enhance and engage learning of young children.
