Linking Theory to Practice The learning tasks for this lesson appropriate for my students because they
(Database: by Greg Kearsley: are based on the following education theories:
http://158.132.155.107/posh97/private/TIP/1.htm ● Multiple Intelligences (H. Gardner) According to Gardner, the
implication of the theory is that learning/teaching should focus on the
Why are the learning tasks for this lesson appropriate particular intelligences of each person. According to Gardner, the
for your students? implication of the theory is that learning/teaching should focus on the
particular intelligences of each person. Gardner also emphasizes the
cultural context of multiple intelligences. Each culture tends to
emphasize particular intelligences.
● Social Development Theory (L. Vygotsky) Cognitive development
requires social interaction. Vygotsky (1978) states: "Every function in
the child's cultural development appears twice: first, on the social level,
and later, on the individual level; first, between people
(interpsychological) and then inside the child (intrapsychological).
This applies equally to voluntary attention, to logical memory, and to
the formation of concepts. All the higher functions originate as actual
relationships between individuals."
● Conditions of Learning (R. Gagne) Different instruction is required
for different learning outcomes. Learning hierarchies define what
intellectual skills are to be learned and a sequence of instruction.
● Dual Coding Theory (A. Paivio) Recall/recognition is enhanced by
presenting information in both visual and verbal form.

Prior Academic Knowledge, Conceptions and Students will need to know the following in order to be successful for this
Requisite Skills lesson:
What knowledge, skills, and concepts must students ● Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand

○ a. A square with side length 1 unit, called "a unit square," is said
What prior knowledge and/or gaps in knowledge do to have "one square unit" of area, and can be used to measure
these students have that are necessary to support the area.
learning of the skills and concepts for this lesson? ○ b. A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or
overlaps by n unit squares is said to have an area of n square
units.
● Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square
in, square ft., and improvised units).
● Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
○ a. Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths
by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be
found by multiplying the side lengths.
○ b. Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-
number side lengths in the context of solving real world and
mathematical problems, and represent whole-number
products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
○ c. Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a
rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the
sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the
distributive property in mathematical reasoning.

## Instructional Strategies and Learning Tasks

Description of what teacher will be doing and what the students will be doing

## Anticipatory Set (or Introduction to Lesson) 10 Minutes

● The teacher will start the lesson by telling the students that they are making some changes to their house and that they need their
help. The teacher will tell the students that they are getting a new carpet and the flooring company asked the teacher the area of the
room. The teacher will tell the students that they know the length of the room is 4 and the width of the room is 5.
● The teacher will lead the students through a think-pair-share activity by first asking them to think about the operation they’ll need to
use to find how much carpet I will need.
● The teacher will pose the question, “To figure out how much new carpet you’ll need, you need to use the operation of _______”. Then
have the students discuss their thoughts with each other.
● The teacher will review some key vocabulary terms such as: Area, Length, Width, Strategy, Compare, Contrast, Different, Similar

Instruction 35 Minutes
● The teacher will write the problem 5 x 4 = ? on the whiteboard. The teacher will tell the students that there are 2 different ways to
solve this problem to the find the area of the floor. The teacher will tell the students that they want the students to decide which
strategy they think is the best strategy to use and share that together they will be comparing and contrasting both strategies.
● Each student will receive the Math Madness: it’s the same area 2 worksheet.
● The teacher will point out the first way to approach the area problem. The teacher will model counting the unit squares to solve
the problem. The teacher will then ask the students if they think that this strategy is good for solving this problem.
● The teacher will point out the second way to approach the area problem. The teacher will tell the students that instead of counting
unit squares they could use the formula length times width to solve the area problem. The teacher will ask the students if they
think this is a good approach to solve the problem.
● The teacher will tell the students that they will be working together on the bottom portion of the worksheet. Partner A will solve
the problem by counting unit squares and partner B will solve the problem by using multiplication.
● The teacher will give the students time to complete the worksheet with their designated strategies and then have the students
share their work with each other.
● The teacher will give the students sentence starters such as The biggest difference between the two strategies is ____.) and
Sentence starter: I think the strategy of ____ is better because ____.)

Closure 15 Minutes
● The teacher will ask the students to share their responses from their index card.
● Together the teacher and the students will discuss the similarities and differences between the two strategies and which strategy
makes the most sense to use when solving the area of a rectangle.

Assessments -- Evaluation

## Differentiation and Planned Support

Plans to address and accommodate the student diversity in the class

What are the teacher’s plans for providing students with access to learning based on diversity and individual needs?
Provide the Rationale / Justification for instructional choices.

For my IEP student, I will need to make sure that they can see the board, the notes, the worksheets, and I will give them more time
to process the answer to a problem that I want them to answer aloud, to account for their IEP. For my struggling students, I will have them
partnered with another student that is more proficient in the materials. For the students that are English language learners, I will have a
worksheets that is translated for them in Spanish, they will have access to both the English and Spanish versions. For my students that
and I will read and explain the materials for them. For the students who are gifted or advanced in their mathematics skills, I will partner
them up with a lower skilled mathematics partner so that they can help the lower student without doing all the work for the lower skilled
mathematics student.
For Individual ELL students needs I would allow learners to utilize glossaries and dictionaries for unfamiliar words in story
problems. I would have EL’s repeat instructions and key vocabulary, summarizing important information for the class. I would also choose
advanced ELs to share their ideas first in group and class discussions.
