Lesson plan
Conserving energy in the skate park
Lesson structure
This lesson plan is 70-minute lessons in a three-lesson sequence.
In this lesson, the teacher introduces the topic, activities and
assessment. The students investigate the topic using a digital
2
learning object and record their understandings on a wiki. In the
third lesson, the teacher presents a series of explanations on the
key concepts. An emphasis is placed on key terms to assist
students to create a more scientifically accurate explanation on
their wiki. The wiki is collected at the start of Lesson 4 for
assessment.

Safety considerations/materials
Usual classroom and computer room rules
Cyber safety: refer to the exemplar and Cybersmart.
Backup plan
It is always possible that the internet may become unavailable
during a lesson. To avoid difficulty with the Energy Skate Park
learning object, you can download it and save to the schools
server. If time permits, install the software on the students
computers directly. For the wiki you may need the students to
4
create a draft in a word processor. This can easily and quickly be
copied to the wiki later.
Assessment ideas
Students participate in a number of ways, and there are
professional decisions to be made about how you use assessment
to drive learning. The wikis could be assessed as formative
assessment. The studentsunderstanding would be assessed in
summative assessment later in the term. The assessment focus
should be on the students scientific content knowledge and
understanding.
Differentiated instruction
Students with visual impairments may need some support when
working with the data; however, presentation devices such as
iPads and computers can include adaptations of colour and font
size as well as adaptive technologies like audio screen-readers to
support students with special needs. The ways in which
cooperative groups are chosen can also be purposefully used to
combine students with complementary needs and gifts.

Reflection

What have I learned about the teaching and

learning process when preparing this lesson?

When I start to modify this lesson plan, I

understood the effort and responsibility of

teacher while designing the lesson plan.As a

preservice teacher, while modifying the

lesson plan, I clearly understood the

requirement of Australian Professional

Teacher standard (APST) and NSW Quality

Teaching model. Though most of the original

lesson plan follow the above-mentioned

standard, needs of students of different social

groups and diversity have not mentioned

clearly. As a result, I have taken an

opportunity to modify this lesson plan by

16
addressing strategies required for the

learning needs of Aboriginal and Torres strait

Islander students and other diverse

background students.

As the original lesson plan had applied ICT for

scientific investigation, it made easier for me

to provide strategies for Aboriginals and

Torres strait Islander students as they learn

effectively with the visually oriented lesson.

Hence I focussed on providing a scaffold on

part of the lesson to carry out an

investigation on the law of conservation of

energy. In addition, extension questions are

provided for gifted students to enhance their

knowledge on ICT. A slight modification is

made in teacher support for students need to

17
promote inclusion education in the

classroom.

Though this assignment consists of many

steps, it helped me to understand my

responsibility and role as an Australian

teacher in a diverse community school.

How am I measuring the outcomes of this


lesson?

What are the key risk issues that may appear

for and need to be reduced/eliminated in this

lesson? Using your syllabus and support

documents as well as other WHS policy-

Outline the key WHS considerations that are

to be applied in this lesson?

In this lesson, ICT is applied to investigate the

law of conservation of energy in the system.

As technology brings a lot of distraction to

students, the teacher should make sure

students use ICT more ethically and

responsibly for learning.Cyber safety issues

are made familiar to the students in order to

protect them from cyber bullying.

Furthermore as mentioned in the original

lesson plan, the backup plan is essential for


19
the teacher when ICT is applied in the

lesson.The internet may be unavailable

during a lesson when analysing data using

energy skate park learning object. To avoid

interruption in student learning, teacher

download software initially and save it to the

computer. As students work need to be

recorded on wikis, students were advised to

draft their work in a word processor and then

copy to wiki's, if there is any internet

problem in the class.

Apart from all these students are advised to

follow classroom rules and practical room

rules. If behavioral problem students are in

class, the teacher needs to have behavioral

management issue plan in order to have a

productive learning environment in the class

20
and also to maintain the safety of other

students.

21
Academic justification:

Although the original lesson plan covers most of the

Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST ), still

there is scope to modify the lesson plan to address the importance

of inclusive education in Australian schools. Inclusive education

acknowledges the diversity of students cultural and personal

differences of learning needs in school(vanKraayenoord,2007).

The inclusive education acknowledges cultural knowledge,

differentiated strategies to provide needs for diverse students of

various backgrounds and social groups such as Aboriginal and

Torres strait Islander students. The inclusive education supports all

individual regardless of their social group to engage in learning

(Ladwig & Gore, 2009).

The social groups such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait

Islander students and social, economic ,cultural, linguistic diverse

background students need are not addressed completely in the

original lesson plan. However differentiated instructions are


22
provided to disabilities and to the range of ability students in the

original lesson plan. .The differentiated instruction not only take

into account the needs of individual difference but it also values

individual experiences and contributions to engage them in

classroom learning environment (vanKraayenoord,2007).The

original lesson plan is modified slightly to suit for diverse

background students and social groups.The differentiation

instruction in the form of scaffolding sheet is provided to

Aboriginal and Torres Strait students. Aboriginal and Torres

Strait Islander students learn more effectively through visual and

repeated instructions (8 Aboriginal way of learning). Since the

original lesson plan was designed with ICT, visual learning with

hands-on activity may found engaging for Aboriginal and Torres

Strait Islander students.ICT is a general capability (NESA, 2017)

and In Australia, integration of ICT into science lesson had shown

positive results. (Luu & Freeman, 2011). Hence I have selected

this original lesson plan which follows APST, Standard 2.6 and

23
4.5 and also can able to engage Aboriginal students effectively in

a science lesson with visual presentation.In addition to it , I have

focussed on scaffolding the process of analysing data. Scaffold

sheets are provided to Aboriginal and Torres strait students for

repeated instruction which meets the requirement of APST,

Standard 1.4. In original lesson plan, differentiated strategies are

provided for visual impairment disability students ( Standard

1.6 ) and the cooperative learning group activity is included to

support students of all range of ability (Standard1.5 ).Hence I

have retained these in modified lesson plan and added more

differentiated instruction to suit for diverse background students

to meet APST 1.3 standard .

Cultural factors play a vital role in student learning.

Strategies that the student apply to learn is greatly influenced by

cultural factors (Hatano & Miyake Ninnes,; Pinxten, ; Slj, as

cited in Boulton-Lewis, Marton, Lewis & Wilss ,2000). Student

learning will be benefited if the Cultural knowledge of a diverse


24
social group of various background acknowledges and valued

(Gore,2007).Hence I have emphasized on cultural knowledge in

the modified lesson plan as it is not taken into account mainly in

original lesson plan. So in the modified lesson plan, cross-

curriculum themes such as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait

Islander histories and cultures are mentioned to provides an

opportunity for students to understand, respect and value

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students ( ACARA,2017).

In addition, The Asia and Australias engagement with Asia

priority mentioned for students to know about social, cultural,

political and economic links that connect Australia with

Asia(ACARA,2017). This enables students to respect each other

opinion and value their knowledge in the class. The modified

lesson plan highlight the cultural knowledge 3.2 of NSW

Quality Teaching Model. This support to build Inclusivity in

class and school community which meet the requirement

inclusivity, 3.4 of NSW Quality Teaching Model.

25
The original lesson plan modified to suit for the required

time of lesson plan. The original lesson plan was designed each

lesson 70 minutes ,but it modified to 60minute as per

requirement. In original lesson plan , the activity is student

centred and hence I retained this activity as it should be

student centred according to NSW Quality Teaching Model

(Gore,2007;Ludwig & Gore,2003 ). In the introduction of prior

learning, discuss questions are mentioned in modified lesson

plan to outline the deep knowledge of prior learning of students.

The process of investigation of energy by a student was detailed

for deep knowledge and understanding. In addition, though the

activity is student centered , the teacher was monitoring the

activity to provide any necessary support. Scaffold sheet and

extension sheet are provided to students of lower ability and

gifted students respectively to engage them in activity. This

modified lesson plan uphold Inclusion education by providing

learning support with detailed and differentiated instructions and

26
cultural knowledge to accommodate all students of diverse

background and groups.
