Lesson Planning

 

Case Study Birthday Moons Schedule

Assignment:  Create and teach math and technology lesson plans to girls in 15 sessions of SMART Lab.  The girls have been in school all day and will respond best to hands-on lessons that support and reinforce the school curriculum.  You will create two sets of lessons that provide instruction for eight class sessions.  While the lessons will not comprise a unit, each set should focus on related skills or concepts.   You may choose to use a theme for each set.  Following the teaching of each lesson, write a reflection about what went well and what you might change if you were to teach the lesson again.  You will work with a partner and the two of you will turn in one set of plans.  It is expected that both partners will contribute equal work to the plans.
