# Molly Craig ED243 21 March 2014 ED243 Lesson Plan 2 Lesson Title: Geometry Curriculum Area (s): Mathematics Grade

comes to math, I think allowing Kody to see math from a different perspective might help him. This lesson also allows him to learn from his classmates and doesn’t put pressure on him individually, which will help him gain confidence. Why will I differentiate?  I will differentiate because Bo, Mike, and Kody have different needs that need to be met to support their ability to learn the lesson. This lesson differentiates for each of these students because it meets the needs of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners. It also helps students learn from their peers. The social aspect benefits students who don’t feel confident in a specific subject. Bo needs extra help socially and emotionally, Mike needs lessons that involve movement and interaction, and Kody needs extra help with math. This lesson meets their needs. How will I differentiate?  The lesson is differentiated for interest, learning preferences, and learning environment because it’s friendly to all different types of learners and their interests. Maybe some students would prefer using a paper and a pencil and only listening to their teacher teach them about geometry. For those students, I think it would benefit them to learn about math from a hands-on and spatial perspective. I would use assistive technology based on the students’ needs in the classroom. If a student has a hard time with fine motor skills, the string can be attached to something larger that they can hold. They would be able to move it where they would like that way.

As a result of this lesson/unit students will… What is the goal?  Understand
o  

Learning the geometry of regular and irregular quadrilaterals, as well as right angles. Regular quadrilateral, irregular quadrilateral, right angle, square, rectangle, rhombus Understanding the shapes enough to create them and discuss the angles during the performance section at the end.

Do (Skills)

Pre‐Assessment:  My pre-assessment is included in the introduction portion where I ask my students to discuss with me types of quadrilaterals and what right angles are. I will also be able to assess their knowledge about irregular quadrilaterals. This will allow me to see where my students are in this aspect of math. Post‐Assessment:  I will be able to assess their learning throughout the lesson by listening to their answers to my questions, as well as seeing the shapes they are making with the string. I will also do most of my post-assessment during the performance phase at the end of the lesson. I will gain a greater understanding of what my students learned at this stage. We will also have an ending discussion about irregular quadrilaterals so I can see if they made progress in that aspect. Additional Resources:  Idea from Dr. Hochman, professor of ED204
