EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY ILesson Plan Integrating Technology & Pedagogy Directions and Outline
 Name _Taylor Carlic_____________________________________ Date __4/10/2012____Construct a lesson plan utilizing good pedagogical practices and incorporating technology as atool for teaching and learning. Focus on a concept or skill in your content specialty area andsupport student activities with the use of hardware and/or software. *Note: Do not make theemphasis of the lesson a "how-to" with technology. An outline for your lesson plan is providedbelow:
Technology ISTE NETS:1.d Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity. Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advancestudent learningd. Model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students.3.c Model digital age work and learning. Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processesrepresentative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society.c. Communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peersusing a variety of digital age media and formats.Common Core standards: English Language Arts:Language:3. Apply knowledge of language to understand how language functions in different contexts, tomake effective choices for meaning or style, and to comprehend more fully when reading orlistening.a. Edit work so that it conforms to the guidelines in a style manual (e.g., MLA
Handbook, Turabian’s Manual for Writers) appropriate for the discipline and writing type.
 6. Acquire and use accurately general academic and domain-specific words and phrases,sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening at the college and career readiness level;demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when considering a word orphrase important to comprehension or expression.
Lesson Objective(s):
Students will apply the rules of comma splices and fused sentences using online exercises.Students will compare sentences to locate errors in example sentences during the onlineexercises.Students will assess their learning by completing the online exercises and completing a journalactivity.
Introduce the Learning Activity:
Writing is a very important facet in life and we all need to be proficient writers. Although mostpeople want to be successful writers, getting there is a tough task. There are many elements of grammar and all serve a different
 purpose. One of the easiest ways to “destroy” writing is
through comma splices and fused sentences. Even though they are major mistakes in writing,they are relatively easy to fix. Often students simply do not understand how to correct theirerrors. After the next two to three days students will have a better understanding of what acomma splice and fused sentence is, but more importantly how to correct their mistakes.
After introducing the lesson, I would begin by putting an example of my ownwriting on the projector to show how mistakes like comma splices affect writing, andultimately the grade received. I would then show them a revised paper showing theimprovement in structure. If students see the teacher making mistakes with grammar andtrying to improve, they are going to be motivated to want to make their own writing better,because it is not just students who struggle with grammar.
Provide Information:
The lesson will begin with an introduction to comma splices. Throughout the year the class hasgone over different rules of grammar and sentence structure. Comma splices and fusedsentences can be difficult to catch, but with practice and application of these rules they canbecome a problem of the past. We will begin the lesson by writing the definitions of a commasplice and a fused sentence.-
Comma splices
are sentences that have two main clauses connected by a comma. Thisform of punctuation is not strong enough to connect two main clauses.-
Fused sentences
are sentences that have two independent clauses without a mark of punctuation and/or no coordinating conjunction.Next, we will learn how we can avoid committing these errors. Students will be asked for theirsuggestions, but ultimately the four ways to avoid a comma splice are: connecting the two mainclauses with a semi-colon; separate the clauses with a comma and a coordinating conjunction(and, or, but, nor, for, so, yet); making the clauses their own sentences by using a period,exclamation point, or question mark; and finally connecting the two clauses with a subordinate
conjunction (after, although, because, before, in order, that, unless, ect…). Fused sentences need
to be revised to know where the proper punctuation goes. A fused sentence is a run-on sentence,and the same rules that apply to comma splices apply to fused sentences.
Provide Practice:
Students will be asked to go to my website at student.plattsburgh.edu/tcarl002. From here theywill be asked to click on the course calendar tab. From here the lesson can be found along withthe activity and reminder of the definition of a comma splice and fused sentences. They will alsosee a link that will take you to the comma splice and fused sentence exercise page. Here thestudent will be asked to finish all five exercises and hand their answers in to the teacher. Thestudents will be in a group setting, but they will be working individually. In a computer
classroom there can be collaboration, but each student will be responsible to hand in their ownexercise sheets. This practice will be used as class work and participation during class.
Provide Knowledge of Results:
 Throughout the activities I will be roaming the classroom assisting students with whateverquestions they have. I will also be able to give student helpful pointers and suggestions if Isee that a student is struggling. This will be the feedback that will provide students with theknowledge they need to know if they are succeeding or failing. Written feedback will comeback with the quiz at the end of the section and in response to the journal. Through commentsI can inform students if they have a strong understanding of the rules for comma splices andfused sentences.
Review the Activity:
 Students will review their work through a journal exercise. The teacher will provide reviewby asking the students the next day to provide the four ways a fused sentence and a commasplice can be edited.
Method of Assessment:
 There will be a formative assessment on the last day of studying comma splices and fusedsentences. This quiz will be combined with the other grammar quizzes taken throughout theyear. There will also be a summative assessment that will consist of the students handing in theirfive exercise worksheets and responding with a journal entry about their learning. The
summative assessment will affect students’ class work and participation grade.
