Artifact 1: Read-Write-Think Lesson Plan
The lesson plan "From Newspapers to
Blogs: Learning to Advocate Through Writing" was a detailed plan I created for the Read-Write-Think website. This entire lesson plan helps show my ability to manage and monitor student learning. This lesson plan shows how I deliver effective instruction while using a variety of instructional techniques. I have showed how this lesson plan takes theory and puts it to practice. I have linked health standards that the students will meet, while also stating the objectives the students will be expected to complete throughout the lesson. Finally, the multiple activities and assessments show my ability to use different methods for measuring what my students have learned.
This Read-Write-Think Lesson Plan was a very involved project that required lots of self and group editing. I created it by combining two lessons I had done in the past and ended up with an amazing 4-day lesson for my 8th grade students. As this lesson was created and I began incorporating such a variety of activities, I realized how easy it would be in all my lessons to include more. By doing this, I will help to motivate and engage my students. Furthermore, creating a lesson plan for the Read-Write-Think website requires teachers to use effective instruction, while also using multiple ways to measure student growth. I became extremely proud of my ability to do this as I created this lesson plan. The final lesson is by far one of my most effective lessons I teach and I can thank the large array of techniques and measurements for that.
