Lesson Procedures

This template is built on the traditional “Madeline Hunter” lesson structure.

A step-by-step description of the scope and sequence of lesson activities, with estimated time on task noted in parentheses for each step. In other words, completely describe the flow of the lesson-the content to be presented, and the strategies to be used. Include actual words you will use and questions you will ask students. Consider items such as: parts of the lesson that might be difficult, and how you will know whether you can go on; how to ensure that students completely understand directions before releasing them to work independently; and what students will do if they finish their work early.

Describe how each stage of the lesson will be managed, including role of teacher and learners (who is doing what at each point), location (e.g., classroom, computer lab, outside), and any special considerations, such as for differentiated instruction.

Cite specifically what resources for this activity will be used, and describe in detail how they will be used. Note who will be using the tool and in what ways. Note any safety considerations needed.

Plans for Differentiated Instruction/Accomodations

 

Special Education Students

Teacher will group lower readers and special education students with readers who are stronger and can read aloud with the group. Students can also have the materials read to them on PebbleGo through the website.

English Language Learners

ELLs will be placed in groups with strong English language speakers and readers for extra social support. Students can also have the materials read to them on PebbleGo through the website.

Gifted and Talented

No GT students identified, but students in need of extra challenge could create a poster showing they are looking for an entrepreneur and give characteristics.

Other:

 

Potential Challenges/Plan B

Students not understanding - Use examples of entrepreneurs and businesses that are relatable. A lemonade stand, a Pokemon card company, etc. Materials not working - Pebblego - Teacher provides printed copies of biographies. Video - teacher discusses characteristics of an entrepreneur aloud Pace too quick - extend project time Pace too slow - shorten project time Misbehaviors - praise out loud the students who are cooperating and working quietly, go over expectations before whole group and group work, offer quietest and most cooperative group Rad dollars at the end of lesson
