Teacher   Candidate Name:

Grade   Level:



Instructional   Plan Title:

Lesson   Summary and Focus:

In   2-3 sentences, summarize the   lesson, identifying the central focus based on the content and skills you are   teaching.
Classroom   and Student Factors/Grouping:

Describe   the important classroom factors (demographics and environment) and student   factors (IEPs, 504s, ELLs, students with behavior concerns, gifted learners),   and the effect of those factors on planning, teaching, and assessing students   to facilitate learning for all students. This should be limited to 2-3   sentences and the information should inform the differentiation components of   the lesson.
National/State   Learning Standards:

Review   national and state standards to become familiar with the standards you will   be working with in the classroom environment.
Your   goal in this section is to identify the standards that are the focus of the   lesson being presented. Standards must address learning initiatives from one   or more content areas, as well as align with the lesson’s learning   targets/objectives and assessments.
Include   the standards with the performance indicators   and the standard language in its entirety.
Specific   Learning Target(s)/Objectives:

Learning   objectives are designed to identify what the teacher intends to measure in   learning. These must be aligned with the standards. When creating objectives,   a learner must consider the following:
o Who is   the audience
o What   action verb will be measured during instruction/assessment
o What   tools or conditions are being used to meet the learning
What   is being assessed in the lesson must align directly to the objective created.   This should not be a summary of the lesson, but a measurable statement   demonstrating what the student will be assessed on at the completion of the   lesson. For instance, “understand” is not measureable, but “describe” and   “identify” are.
For   example:
Given   an unlabeled map outlining the 50 states, students will accurately label all   state names.
Academic   Language

In   this section, include a bulleted list of the general academic vocabulary and   content-specific vocabulary you need to teach. In a few sentences, describe   how you will teach students those terms in the lesson.
Resources,   Materials, Equipment, and Technology:

List   all resources, materials, equipment, and technology you and the students will   use during the lesson. As required by your instructor, add or attach copies   of ALL printed and online materials at the end of this template. Include   links needed for online resources.
Section 2: Instructional Planning
Anticipatory Set
Your goal in this section is to open the lesson by   activating students’ prior knowledge, linking previous learning with what   they will be learning in this lesson and gaining student interest for the   lesson. Consider various learning preferences (movement, music, visuals) as a   tool to engage interest and motivate learners for the lesson.
In a bulleted list, describe the materials and   activities you will use to open the lesson. Bold any   materials you will need to prepare for the lesson.
For example:
· I will use a visual   of the planet Earth and ask students to describe what Earth looks   like.
· I will record their ideas   on the white board and ask more questions about the amount of water they   think is on planet Earth and where the water is located.
