Lesson Content
MACC.3.0A.3.7: Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the
relationship between multiplication and division or properties of operations. By the end of
Grade 3, know all products of two one-digit numbers (Math Textbook).

1). Students will be able to divide by 9.


I will also have technology goals that I want to incorporate into my lesson. The main
focus of the technology I am incorporating into this lesson is to get good data, and using
the technology to assess my students in a unique way.
My technology integration fit the best with Goal Directed, Adoption from the technology
matrix USF has.

Formative:
1). KWL
2). Check N Go

If applicable, how does this lesson connect to the interests and cultural
backgrounds of your students?
I am integrating technology into my lesson, which is definitely an interest of
my students.

Differentiationbased on
the needs of your students
how will you take
individual and group
learning differences into
account.

There will be an enrichment worksheet available for students to work on if they


finish early, in order to prevent students from just sitting at their desk.
Students also rate where they are in terms of understanding, and get
additional help depending on that rating.

Relevant Psychological
Theories and research
taken in consideration
when planning this lesson

I will be trying to incorporate metacognition which is something we learned a lot about


in our learn and development class. I want students to take the time to reflect on their
learning, and take note if they understand what is being presented to them.

Gabrielle Schwarz
University Supervisor/Peer Observation #2
This observation was a unique experience for me. I had the opportunity to be observed not only by my supervisor but also by a
peer. This allowed me a chance for feedback from two different people.
The lesson started out well. I had students engaged, and had pretty good classroom management. Students worked independently
and then partner talked for a moment about how they got their answer for the Problem of the Day. I walked around the classroom during
this time, and took notice of two students who both got the correct answer, but used different strategies. I had both these students come up
to the board and present their answers to the class, emphasizing their different strategies.
I felt as though in the beginning I was doing well at keeping time with the students. Not allowing for too much or to little time. This
is something I had previously struggled with at times.
At one point the classroom seemed to become a bit unorganized though. There was a part of the lesson where students needed to
get their check n go looked at, and once correct would go off and work with a partner, while a certain group of students would work in
small group with myself.
There was confusion at this time for certain students, which was surprising as this is how we usually break apart groups. This
confusion mostly occurred with small group, there is a group of students who is worked with on a regular basis, but one particular student

who regularly works in small group, decided they did not want to work in small group. This was a bit of an issue, and it took time to get
this student to join small group.
At this time, the class also got a bit loud, which did not help with any of the confusion. I think I could have had better classroom
management. My supervisor also suggested myself or another teacher circulating the classroom with a roster, putting a plus or minus next
to a students name if they are engaged and working, or if they are goofing off. She thought this would better enforce the importance of
participation to students, and promote the students to work more efficiently. Which I think is a great idea and strategy, and I definitely want
to use it in the future.
I used v-note, which is software my supervisor recommended to better reflect on my performance. I noticed from this reflection on
v-note that I could of tried to rephrase my directions at certain points, as I noticed that when providing clarification to students that I
tended to repeat myself sometimes.
This lesson was also supposed to integrate technology, which was going to be plicker. This was a bit difficult as we were a bit short
on time, and it was almost time for dismissal. My peer recommended passing out the plickers a different way next time, as it was a bit time
consuming. I will definitely do this, possibly passing them out in the beginning of the lesson, the only concern was that students may
play with them, and it could distract them. I would just make sure to watch for this.

I feel as though the use of plickers provided me a solid form of summative data at the conclusion of the lesson. I have data to look
back on and see whether students got the concept they were supposed to get from the lesson. This was also a less stressful, less pressure
way to assess my students. Some of my students may suffer from test anxiety and I believe this way of assessing is a great way to relieve
that anxiety.
The data from using the plickers informed me that about sixty-seven percent of my students got the concept. This is unacceptable to
me. I definitely want to go over this material again with my students. This is a way plickers and technology in general can be useful in the
classroom, as it can also double as a form of formative data in a way, as the data informed me that I would want to go over the material
again.
I was a bit nervous when I first decided to incorporate plickers into my lesson, but my CT had used them before and the students
were familiar with them, which made me feel a bit better. There were no real problems when students were actually utilizing plickers,
which was nice.
I would try to incorporate some of the strategies from above if I was to do a lesson with similar structure again. I want to continue
to work on improving my classroom management skills, and making sure that even If I am working with a small group that the rest of the
class is being productive and on task.

I learned a lot from this experience. This showed me how important it is to have good classroom management. My students need to
know that they are still expected to be working even if I am not standing next to them or looking at them. I look forward to continuing to
improve as a teacher.
