Reflection on Lesson Design


Answer the following questions:
The chapters were used thoroughly and
extensively in order to plan and execute this
lesson plan. The readings were very
insightful and helpful in conveying
information.
Extensive information will be offered on
assessments and a more thorough approach
to learners will be introduced in lesson plan
I would have students explain their findings
in screen-omatic-presentation
He students have research through various
types of information weeding out essential
and non-essential elements. The websites in
the treasure hunt are web sites which guide
the students through WWII history so the
technology is directly related to the lesson.
