Materials
Materials include: Smartnboard lesson, activity worksheet, youtube video,

Learning Strategies
Direct Instruction: This will be evident when I am explaining the correct form of the verb to be. Individual Instruction: This will be evident when students complete examples independently in class. Students will use the steps used in class discussion and previous problems to help them complete the handout. Group Discussion: This will be evident when the students go up to the board to decide if the subject is singular or plural. This will also be evident when we go over what we learned in the video and the lesson activity.

Exceptionality
Students that are having great difficulty translating class discussions will be given an English dictionary. They also may use the computer to easily translated certain misunderstandings.

Differentiation of Instruction
Tier One: Students will complete a worksheet stating which form of the verb to be will be used. These students will be able to refer back at the notes and definitions. Tier Two: complete a worksheet stating which form of the verb to be will be used.. Tier Three: Students complete a worksheet stating which form of the verb to be will be used. These students will also come up with their own sentences using the correct form of the verb to be.

Developmental Procedures
Students will watch the Do Now video The class will discuss the video and sentence structure. The class will discuss the difference between singular and plural. Students will go over up to the smart board and complete the singular/plural t-chart Students will take notes on the proper form of the verb to be (am, is, are). Each student will receive an activity handout. Individually, they will complete each example. Stating if the subject is plural or singular and which form would be appropriate. After all students have completed the handout, we will go over the assignment as a class. Students will explain their reasoning and thought process for each example. Students will then complete the exit ticket before they depart from class. Students will learn how to use the proper form of the verb to be. They will also learn the difference between singular or plural. (What is the subject of a sentence? What is singular? What is a plural? How do I structure a sentence? Which form of the verb to be will we use?)

Artifacts and Assessment (Formal and Informal)


Students will be able to determine if the subject is plural or singular. They will also be able to acknowledge when to use the correct form of the word to be: am, is are on a worksheet. Then the students will be able to complete an assignment independently.

Independent Practice

Follow- Up: Direct Teacher Intervention and Academic Enrichment


Direct Teacher Intervention: The teacher and student will, together, work on an interactive CD-ROM to practice the steps the order of operations. The teacher will also offer extra help for the student to completely

understand the material that is fitting on their time schedule. This will allow for individual one on one instruction and attention that the teacher can give the student. Academic Enrichment: The student will use the internet or other resources to find real life instances in which they will need to use the order of operations. The students will come up with their own word problems and present them to the class.
