What Standards (national
or state) relate to this
lesson?
(You should include ALL
applicable standards. Rarely
do teachers use just one:
they’d never get through
them all.)
Essential Understanding
(What is the big idea or
essential question that you
want students to come away
with? In other words, what,
aside from the standard and
our objective, will students
understand when they finish
this lesson?)

Objectives- What are you
teaching?
(Student-centered: What will
students know and be able to
do after this lesson? Include
the ABCD’s of objectives:
action, behavior, condition,
and degree of mastery, i.e.,
"C: Given a sentence written
in the past or present tense,
A: the student B: will be able

to re-write the sentence in
future tense D: with no errors
in tense or tense contradiction
(i.e., I will see her
yesterday.)."
Note: Degree of mastery does
not need to be a percentage.)
Rationale
Address the following
questions:
 Why are you teaching this
objective?
 Where does this lesson fit
within a larger plan?
 Why are you teaching it
this way?
 Why is it important for
students to learn this
concept?
Evaluation Plan- How will
you know students have
mastered your objectives?
Address the following:
 What formative evidence
will you use to document
student learning during
this lesson?
 What summative evidence
will you collect, either

I am teaching this objective because it goes along with the standard involving equivalent
fractions, which is required. Students will need to understand the basic equivalency of
fractions in order to understand future content. I’ll be teaching it in a hands on way
because it allows students to really apply what they are learning. Students need to
understand equivalent fractions for life, especially when cooking or preparing food.

Formative: Turn and Talks, Engagement Activity
Summative: Workbook Pages

What Content Knowledge
is necessary for a teacher
to teach this material?

Students need to have a basic understanding of fractions, factors, and their multiplication
facts.

What background
knowledge is necessary for
a student to successfully
meet these objectives?

Students need to have practiced and worked with multiplication facts. I can look back at
students previous test scores and data. My students are both agp and students with
disabilities, as well as the “average” student.

 How will you ensure
students’ have this
previous knowledge?
 Who are your learners?
 What do you know about
them?
 What do you know about
their readiness for this
content?
What misconceptions

They may not correctly understand multiplication. They may mix up the numerator and

Each content area may require a different step-by-step format. Use
whichever plan is appropriate for the content taught in this lesson.
For example, in science, you would detail the 5 Es here
(Engage/Encountering the Idea; Exploring the Idea;
Explanation/Organizing the Idea; Extend/Applying the Idea;
Evaluation).

Allow them to help other students and practice multiplication facts.
Meeting your students’
needs as people and as
learners

If applicable, how does this lesson connect to the interests and cultural
backgrounds of your students?
Students get the chance to have hands on engagement with the paper folding
activity which is good for my kinesthetic learners. Students also need to have
an understanding of equivalent fractions.
If applicable, how does this lesson connect to/reflect the local community?
This lesson connects to the community because students need to understand
equivalent fractions in their community, an example being in distance, like
figuring out what ½ from a destination is.
How will you differentiate instruction for students who need additional
challenge during this lesson (enrichment)?
I will differentiate the engagement activity; my first block will use just one
sheet, while my other block uses two sheets. I will also provide more examples
to my second block.

How will you differentiate instruction for students who need additional
language support?
I will read directions when necessary.
Accommodations (If
needed)
