Overview (a short summary of the lesson or unit including assignment or expected or possible products)
This lesson focuses on internet safety. The teacher will prepare the students by asking questions about their
knowledge of internet safety. Students will do research and write a brief summary over internet safety. The
students will be put into evenly divided and strategically planned groups for the first two portions of the
assignment, but will work independently for the other two portions. The students will do their work in the
classroom and during computer lab time. The students will be provided with all necessary instructions, an
assessment rubric, and various teacher approved websites. Accommodations will be provided as needed.
The students will end the assignment with a reflective survey.

Essential Questions (What essential question or learning are you addressing? What would students care
or want to know about the topic? What are some questions to get students thinking about the topic or
generate interest about the topic? What questions can you ask students to help them focus on important
aspects of the topic? What background or prior knowledge will you expect students to bring to this topic
and build on?)
What are ways in which you can use the internet safely?
2. What are dangers or issues that can arise from not using the internet safely?
3. Why is it important to learn internet safety?
1.

Assessment (What will students do or produce to illustrate their learning? What can students do to
generate new knowledge? How will you assess how students are progressing (formative assessment)?
How will you assess what they produce or do? How will you differentiate products?)
1. The students will brainstorm ideas about internet safety within their groups.
2. The students will work independently while writing their brief (1-2 paragraphs) summary of what
they learned.
3. The students will work within their groups to research information about internet safety from the
teacher approved websites provided to them.
Resources (How does technology support student learning? What digital tools, and resourcesonline
student tools, research sites, student handouts, tools, tutorials, templates, assessment rubrics, etchelp
elucidate or explain the content or allow students to interact with the content? What previous technology
skills should students have to complete this project?)
1. The students will access the teacher approved websites that are provided to them.
2. The students should be able to access and navigate the websites provided to them
3. The students will be provided with an assessment rubric to use as reference when writing their
brief summaries.

Preparation (What student needs, interests, and prior learning provide a foundation for this
lesson? How can you find out if students have this foundation? What difficulties might students
have?)
The students will need to identify their own experiences with internet safety. The teacher will ask
students what they already know about internet safety. The teacher will ask the students what they think
are ways to use the internet safely. Some students may have issues with accessing and navigating the
websites.
Management (How and where will your students work? Classroom, lab, groups, etc?
The students will be required to work on their assignment in the classroom. The students will be divided
into equal, strategically planned groups when brainstorming and researching information. The students will
work in their groups at the classroom computers and will work in the computer lab during lab time. Once
the brainstorming and research portions of the assignment are complete, the students will work
independently to write their brief summaries over what they have learned. The students will work
independently when completing the survey at the conclusion of the assignment.
Instruction and Activities (What instructional strategies will you use with this lesson? How will
your learning environment support these activities? What is your role? What are the students'
roles in the lesson? How can the technology support your teaching? What engaged and
worthwhile learning activities and tasks will your students complete? How will they build
knowledge and skills? Will students be expected to collaborate with each other and others? How
will you facilitate the collaboration?)
The teacher will provide the necessary instructions, websites, and assessment rubric for the assignment.
The teacher will demonstrate how to access and navigate the websites provided to them and will be
available to guide and assist the students as needed. During the brainstorming and researching portions of
the assignment, the teacher will place the students in evenly divided and strategically planned groups that
will accommodate students who may have trouble navigating the websites or reading the website content.
The students will be required to complete a brief summary over internet safety and a reflective survey over
the assignment.

Differentiation (How will you differentiate content and process to accommodate various learning styles
and abilities? How will you help students learn independently and with others? How will you provide
extensions and opportunities for enrichment? What assistive technologies will you need to provide?)

Page 3 of 4

The students will work in evenly divided and strategically planned groups for the brainstorming and research
portions of the assignment. This will ensure that each group has at least one student that is a fluent reader and
can navigate computers well. The students will work independently while completing the brief summary and
the reflective survey. Students will be able to choose from a variety of websites to use when researching their
information. The teacher will be available to help any students who may have questions or need assistance.
Students will have the opportunity to do additional research on this topic after this assignment has been
completed and they may present this information to the class. No assistive technologies will be needed at this
time, but they will be implemented as needed along with any other accommodations.
Closure and Reflection (Will there be a closing event? Will students be asked to reflect upon
their work? Will students be asked to provide feedback on the assignment itself? What will be
your process for answering the following questions?
Did students find the lesson meaningful and worth completing?
In what ways was this lesson effective?
What went well and why?
What did not go well and why?
How would you teach this lesson differently?)
Each of the students will write a brief summary (1-2 paragraphs) of what they learned from this assignment.
Each of the students will complete a survey at the end of this assignment to serve as a reflection. The survey
will ask the following questions:
1. Did the students find the lesson helpful? Why or why not?
2. What were the students likes and dislikes about the assignment?
3. Did the students like working in groups or would they have preferred to complete the entire assignment
independently?
4. Did the students find the websites provided to them sufficient enough to complete the assignment, or would
they have liked to have had additional resources?
The teacher will review the surveys and use the information gathered to see how the lesson could be taught
differently in the future.
