Lesson Sequenced Activities Plan Evaluation
Introduction or Overview
- Orients the reader to what is included in the plan: activities, goals, prerequisites, grade level, unique instructional methodology used, and other ideas to convince a teacher the plan is worth further reading. May include the following:
- Background information - includes supporting information to help the teacher. E.g. misconceptions, mathematical background information
- Rationale - describes the importance of why students should learn the content of the plan. How it is important to everyday life develops a disposition to do mathematics, solve problems, and see the benefits of mathematics.
- Big ideas, Generalizations, concepts, facts and outcomes includes comprehensive and appropriate statements of what the students will learn. More powerful statements are easy to generalize to other situations or problems, are more comprehensive than facts, and connect to other mathematical ideas and real life.
Procedure for lesson plan has activities that
- are developmentally appropriate and should motivate students to use in everyday life and for further study of mathematics.
- are logically sequenced for all dimensions.
- include multidimensions.
- include opportunities for students to focus their attention on observable factual information, negotiate and bridge those ideas with reasoning to construct concepts and generalization for the big ideas.
- provide opportunities for students to communicate their learnings and extend the ideas to discover the limits and proceduralize them within the scope of the big ideas and into higher levels of learning for the required dimensions.
- include diagnostic, formative, summative, and generative assessment; within the instructional sequence and assesses all planned outcomes for all four ways.
- describes observable outcomes for all required dimensions.
- describes appropriate levels of outcomes (may include scoring guides or rubrics).
- Information is organized, word processed in electronic format readable by Microsoft WORD, and proofed for errors.
- References such as worksheets, charts, samples, are included and easy to find among the text or in an appendix.
- References sources.
