There are no ELL students in this class, but the same principles apply.
Pictures will be provided. Students may collaborate with others to
complete an activity. Students may look up a word in any language to
find its meaning in Spanish.
I felt this lesson was not my best. Mostly because I realized I had not
designed anything in the lesson that was informed by prior
assessment. I changed things a bit by not having students correct their
own bell starters, so that I could use this as a way to inform future
lesson planning. I did implement instructional strategies I have not
used previously, in hopes of reaching my midterm goal of
differentiating instruction and providing more variety in my lesson
Despite this, I felt the lesson went well overall. Maybe a 3.5 out of 5.
Im still obviously struggling with the formal lesson plan. I thought the
lesson itself went better than the lesson plan would indicate.
