The Educational Background of Angie McInerney

I was a military brat. Because of this, I attended several different schools in several

different places. However, not as many as some military kids. My schooling began in Del Rio,

Texas. I attended public school for kindergarten and part of first grade, when my parents decided

that it would be in my best interest to attend our church’s newly formed private Christian school.

Our moves took us to Las Vegas and then to Germany, all the while, my parents continued to

send me to schools run by the churches we attended.

The high school I attended and graduated from was Eldorado High School in Las Vegas, Nevada,

home of the Sun Devils. That is where my formal education ended, until I finally decided to get

my degree in Elementary Education and started attending CWI last semester.

It’s kind of funny that I want to be a teacher, because I remember being miserable in

school a lot of the time. I believe a lot of this was due to my learning style not being compatible

with the style of teaching at most of the schools I attended, and in turn I struggled. There was not

the knowledge or resources at these schools to be able to diagnose a child with a learning

disability, or simply try a different approach or learning strategy. It was very rigid. An important

thing I learned from this is looking at each child as an individual and finding ways to improve

and maximize their learning experience, and this will be something important to me as a teacher.

Task 10: Create Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan

Instructor: Angie McInerney


Grade Level: 3rd
Lesson Title: Fraction Pizzas
Time Needed: 45-50 Minutes

Lesson Source: Idaho State Standard Number and Operations – Fractions 3.NF.1

Concepts:
A pizza can represent a whole and when divided into slices can represent that whole
object being broken into a certain number of equal parts.

Objectives:

Students will be able to:


 Learn the concept of whole objects being broken into a certain number of equal
parts.
 Learn equal parts of a whole can be written as a fraction.
 Understand that a fraction represents one or more equal parts out of the total
number of parts.
 Understand that a fraction represents multiple equal parts out of the total number
of parts

Idaho State Standards:

Number and Operations—Fractions 3.NF.1

Develop understanding of fractions as numbers.


McInerney 11

Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned
into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size
1/b.

Materials List and Advanced Preparations:

Students assigned to working groups


Pre-made pizza base for each group
Construction Paper
Glue Sticks
Scissors
Colored Markers
Play Money – Dollars and Quarters

Supplementary Materials

Pizza “Recipe” for each group
Worksheet to collect fraction data from each groups pizza
