LESSON SEQUENCE & PACING
1. First, I will help explain the formal definition of
manners to the class without giving examples. Then I
will divide class into group of 3-4 students to come up
with 1 good and 1 bad example of manners. If
students are struggling, they can have one of each
per group, preferred one of each per student. Once
students have written down examples on their sticky
notes, they will place them on the white board that is
divided into Good Manner and Bad Manner.
Teacher will read of the examples given then present
the PowerPoint examples. Play video clip.
2. Next, teacher will help students understand that
manners are different in other cultures. Provide
examples from slide. Within their groups or as an
entire class, have students discuss examples in their
lives or people they know. Ask groups to share out
some of their examples if it was a group discussion
opposed to class.

4. Within their groups students will watch the clip
and individually write down their observations of good
and bad manners presented. After clip, have student
discuss their examples within their groups or as a
class.
5. Continue with PowerPoint: These slides will help
students connect what they are learning to their
current lives.
6. The final group activity students will brainstorm a
list of manners they think are most important for our
classroom. Groups need to get their list approved by
the teacher before they can move onto making a
poster with those manners. They have complete
freedom of creating their poster.

Differentiation:
Students who need help writing their thoughts
on sticky note can raise their hand for teacher or
associate to help write them down.
Students who are visual learners will follow long
with teachers modeling.

DIFFERENTIATING YOUR INSTRUCTION:


How specifically will you differentiate your content, process, or product
based on student readiness, interest, or learning style? Will you gather
information about your students prior knowledge? Will you work to build
on your students prior knowledge? Will you scaffold student instruction?
Will you flexibly group students based on readiness, interest, or learning
style? Will you give students choice in this lesson?
