Student Assessment and Evaluation (How will you know whether or not your students
[all students] have met your objectives and shown growth toward meeting the standards?
3

What informal and formal techniques will you use? What type of corrections might you
need to make in instruction, and how will you know?
Discussion response
Essay
Observation
Quiz of multiple choice and True False questions
Differentiation Techniques: I will provide discussions and video images of content.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of the content by individual reflection,
group discussions, essay, and final quiz.
B. Analysis (Rationale)
Rationale for Activities
I selected several activities such as individual portfolio, peer group discussions,
videos, and essay for the students as a variety of learning tools to master the
objectives and standards. Some students learn best through individual study and
others through group activity. I selected these activities to enhance the students
experience in learning in a short subject. During my observation of discussion I will
insert questions to gauge the student learning. After establishing group activities I
can further observe students completing the group evaluation form. I can review
essays and final quiz to compare students ideas and formulate ideas for improvement.
There is value added with teaching with technology because it gives the students
vivid display of the topic. Technology also gives richness to delivery of text and
drama. My philosophy of teaching is to provide students with the best opportunity in
education to learn different.
