UDL Principle:

Checkpoint 1.3 Offer alternatives for visual information, Checkpoint 4.1 Vary the methods for
response and navigation, Checkpoint 9.1 Promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation

Unit and Instructional Objective:

Students are to pull up the Jutland Lecture (about five minutes) on the weebly site. You will listen to
the mini lecture then reflect on the message. In the assessment, you will be tasked with writing a
couple responses to the lecture. I want you to bring those responses with you to class. Afterwards, I
want you to use the links in the Weebly to research about the Battle of Jutland.

Initiation:

Before you watch the lecture, write a paragraph about a time where a mistake costed you
something. The mistake could be something simple, or something very detailed. What did it cost
you? Was it something that could have been avoided? Was there anything you could have done
differently?

Modeling:

Mini-Lecture Research Data Article online

Guided Practice:

Open Discussion: Start with what it means to make a human error, and what those costs could be.
Debate: Students will split into two groups. One group will debate that the right choice was made.
The other group will be arguing against that point. Students will get a short period to research, and
refresh their memories on the events and the situation.

Independent Practice:

The two responses will result in a tiered response, one being more detailed, fleshed out and
complete than the other.

Closing:

N/A

Assessment:

Students will write two responses after listening to the mini-lecture and researching by using the
links. The first response will be a single paragraph about the general idea behind the battle of
jutland. The second response will be three paragraphs that fully outline your thoughts, and response
to the battle. Could anything have been done differently to change the outcome? Was the right call
made?
