Lesson Planning: Effective Strategies
Effective teachers strategically plan instructional strategies through lesson planning and preparation. A variety of instructional strategies helps to ensure all students are learning.
Select a K-8 grade level and a state math standard. Using the “Class Profile” as a resource, design a lesson using the “COE Lesson Plan Template.” Include strategies learned in this course, including strategies for promoting critical thinking, problem-solving, questioning, mathematical discourse, and academic vocabulary development. Include differentiation for students who would benefit from it, based on needs outlined in the “Class Profile.”
After writing your complete lesson plan, explain three instructional strategies you included in your lesson and why. How do these strategies promote collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity? Bold the name of the strategy.
