Objective (Explicit):
· By the end of this lesson, students will know what a paper son is and explain why
they emigrated from China to the United States during the late 19th century.
Evidence of Mastery (Measurable):
¨ Include a copy of the lesson assessment.
¨ Provide exemplar student responses with the level of detail you expect to see.
¨ Assign value to each portion of the response.
To measure the student's’ mastery the teacher will be collecting the paper sons
that the students will be making in class and check to see if all three paper sons
are filled out; What the students know, want to know and learned (KWL Chart).
Each paper son will be assigned 5 points each, full points will be 15 points. (KWL
Chart)

Sub-objectives, SWBAT (Sequenced from basic to complex):
¨ How will you review past learning and make connections to previous lessons?
¨ What skills and content are needed to ultimately master this lesson objective?
¨ How is this objective relevant to students, their lives, and/or the real world?
Students will be asked if they have ever heard of paper sons and what they think paper
sons are?

Opening (state objectives, connect to previous learning, and make relevant to real
life)
¨ How will you activate student interest?
¨ How will you connect to past learning?
¨ How will you present the objective in an engaging and student-friendly way?
¨ How will you communicate its importance and make the content relevant to your
students?
For the opening the teacher will pass out paper son KWL charts to each student.
The student will also ask students to share with one another what they think
paper sons are. After a brief discussion students will begin filling out the “K” and
“L” portion of the paper sons KWL chart.

onstrate all
knowledge/skills
required of the

¨ How will you

Student Will:
¨ What will students be doing to actively
capture and process the new material?
¨ How will students be engaged?

misunderstandings
or common student
errors?
¨ How will you
check for

The co-teacher will circle the classroom and assist students that
may have questions regarding their KWL charts.
Differentiation Strategy
¨ What accommodations/modifications will you include for
specific students?
¨ Do you anticipate any students who will need an additional

challenge?
For students who need additional challenge I will instructed them
to think about what it would be like to be a paper son and write a

you check for
understanding?
¨ How will you
provide guidance to
all students as they
practice?
¨ How will you
explain and model
behavioral

with your support, such that they continue to
internalize the sub-objectives?
¨ How will students be engaged?

paper sons KWL
chart and guide
the students how
