Title of Artifact: Lesson Plan 4
New Jersey Professional Standards for Teachers: Standard Four Content Knowledge

I am placing my artifact, Lesson Plan 4, under Standard Four Content Knowledge as evidence
of continued mastery towards development of connecting central concepts to provide students
with the proper skills they need to succeed. With this artifact, I prove my ability to create lessons
which pertain to the Common Core Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content
Standards. This lesson has examples of differentiation and multiple tools of inquiry to assure that
each student understands and retains the information being taught.
