Pre-Lab Lesson Plan
Date: Tuesday March 13, 2013Lesson Topic: Intro to lab and lab techniquesUnit’s Essential Questions: How do species adapt, differentiate, and survive selective pressures?
Your objectives should be measureable,contain an observableverb, and be written in student-friendly language.
Students will know or be able to:1. Basic outline of the lab2. Why we are doing the lab3. Materials we will use and how to operate them4. Expectations and tips for the labMechanism of assessment for measuring each objective:Student responses, questions, and comments during DTP andclass discussion
Look at your “Teaching Methods toTry” list and choosemethods that will best help you reach your objectives.

After teaching, reflect on how well eachmethod worked and what you would do to refine or build oneach method.
I didn’t get many questions during the presentationStudents did a pretty decent job explaining different labtechniques

Evidence of differentiation
Based on your assessment of student learning, what are you going to do toaccommodate the range of needs in your classroom?
· Put the lecture slides on the course website for students to review· Answer questions and offer clarification during DTP· Have Biotechnology students demonstrate how to use materials and different lab techniques for their peers· Pass around different lab materials so that students can handle them before the actual lab
