any other special features or important information that you included in your Long Range Plan as you described your students.

This a second grade English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies class at Bethune-Bowman Elementary School in Rowesville, SC, where there is a total of 23 students. There are 12 females and 11 males in the class. All of the students are African American with the exception of three students who are Caucasian. There are 21 students in the class who receive free lunch, one student receives reduced lunch, and one student receives full lunch. Two students receive resource daily for one hour from Mrs. Camp. Six students receive services from the Speech Pathologist, Mrs. Darby. There are six students whose reading levels are at the pre-primer stage. There are two students whose reading levels are at the primer stage. Six students’ reading levels range from 1.0-1.9. Six students reading levels range from 2.0-2.9. Three students reading levels range from 3.0-3.9.

Section III: Contextual Factors:Describe the contextual factors, including the (1) relevant student characteristics from
Section II, as well (2) as other factors related to the community, district, school, classroom or students, that are likely to impact instruction and/or student learning with regard to the selected instructional unit.

There are 12 females and 11 males in the class. All of the students are African American with the exception of three students who are Caucasian. There are 21 students in the class who receive free lunch, one student receives reduced lunch, and one student receives full lunch. Two students receive resource daily for one hour. Six students receive services from the Speech Pathologist. There are six students whose reading levels are at the pre-primer stage. There are two students whose reading levels are at the primer stage. Six students reading levels range from 1.0-1.9. Six students reading levels range from 2.02.9. Three students reading levels range from 3.0-3.9. The factors will be taken into consideration during unit planning and instruction by: 1. I will use the information regarding my students’ socioeconomic status to plan activities. I understand when planning my lessons that some of them may require materials to be bought or materials to be used at home. If my students live in a low income household, then I cannot hold them responsible because of their home situation. 2. Two students receive resource daily and six students receive services from the Speech Pathologist. I have to adjust my units to fit these students’ needs and allow them more time to be taught the material they miss while in resource or speech. I have to understand these students may not grasp material as easily others and strategize to help them. Revised Fall 2013 – ACEI/NAEYC 2010 Standards

3. I will particularly focus on the students’ reading levels that are in the pre-primer, primer, and range from 1.0-1.9. These students are very low in reading so I will have to find books that are appropriate for them to read at his or her level. When searching for reading documents, I will have to take these students into consideration.

The anticipatory set of the unit is the first sequence of steps to achieve the unit objectives. The anticipatory set is the hook of the lesson which is to aim to catch the students’ attention. The anticipatory set may consist of Brain Pop Jr. videos which will be viewed on the promethean board. At the beginning of each story, there is an essential

question which will be answered during the duration of the story. Additionally, there is a video on www.pearsonsuccess.net which will help answer the question for the particular story. The website has other vocabulary activities and grammar lessons available. The Direct Instruction is the most important sequence step because this is where the students are taught the material for the lesson. Before reading the story, this sequence step will be based on discussing the type of story it is such as myth, fable, expository text, etc. This discussion will be led into the reading of the story. After the students have listened to the story on the CD, then the teacher will ask the students the questions in the teacher edition of the book. This will give students a better understanding of the story. The Guided Practice will be the teaching and reviewing of spelling and vocabulary words from the story. The sequence step will also involve teaching the students a mini-lesson on a grammar subject. The students will be guided through examples to further the lesson. The students will watch a video or be shown a PowerPoint presentation on the grammar subject to reinforce the lesson. The Independent Practice is the sequence step where students will work individually on an assignment to prove they have understood the material that has been taught. These will usually be worksheets that coincide with the story with vocabulary words or concept questions for the story. The Closure of each lesson will be a review of the story highlights and vocabulary and spelling words. The students will have a writing topic each week which will coincide with the story. The writing topic deals with the type of story that was read.

The anticipatory set may consist of Brain Pop Jr. videos which will be viewed on the promethean board. The video will show the students the main concept of the lesson. The Direct Instruction is the most important sequence step because this is where the students are taught the material for the lesson. Students are taught the information for social studies by teaching them about the important concepts which will be discussed in the unit. The teacher will lead a discussion by asking student questions about the topic to help them understand what will be taught. The Guided Practice will be choral reading of the textbook pages with the students and asking questions during the reading. The Independent Practice will be for students to look up definitions in the dictionary. Students will choose a word to complete a Frayer Model on. The Closure of the lesson will be to review what has been taught. The students will share his or her Frayer model with the class.
