TPE #5: Student Engagement Candidates for Teaching Credentials clearly communicate instructional objectives to students and make sure

all students participate evenly. Students are to know what they are to be doing at the various stages, and the teacher is able to re-engage students who are not on task.

Abstract: The lesson introduces the concept of division of multi digit numbers where students learn the concept through instruction and discovery through the use of manipulatives. Students must follow the manipulative rules that are clearly outlined in the beginning of the lesson. As a class students learn and discover the concept by use of manipulatives. For practice, students do problems on white boards and then show to check for comprehension.

Rationale: Students must demonstrate learning through the manipulation of pennies so they must be on task, and when doing practice problems, students do them on white boards and then show the teacher. By doing this each student must be actively involved in the lesson and demonstrating understanding. These methods make it easy for the teacher to see if students are on task because their progress is continually being checked. The students know the expectations and are forced to demonstrate these expectations as the teacher is able to monitor all students effectively.

Reflection: Thereis a lot of discovery self/peer Success: and teaching with this lesson, students not needto rely on so do language only. Thereis alsoa lot of think time with the discovery, independent work, peerwork andclass work.

If this is in the case, other anddo independent therewill haveto be more instructionthrough language whichmav be difficult for the ELL.
