This week we continue to evaluate and develop Instructional Activities and Assessments. Our Learning Objectives are: Evaluate a lesson plan for alignment between standards, learning objectives, and assessment. [ACEI 3.1; InTASC 4(a), 4(n), 7(a), 7(f), 7(g)] Evaluate a lesson plan for relevance and expected engagement level. [ACEI 3.1, 3.4; InTASC 1(g), 4(m), 4(g), 7(a), 8(c)] Our last week includes one assignment AND your submission of your completed Clinical Field Experience Verification Form. Evaluating Lesson Plans: For this assignment, you will locate a lesson plan posted online that states that it is aligned to a national or state English Language Arts standard. Compose a 500-750-word evaluation of the lesson plan based on the following criteria: Thoroughness of the lesson plan components. Alignment between the standard, learning objectives, learning and teaching activities, and the assessment. Real-world relevance of the learning and teaching activities. Regarding evidence or artifacts of learning, how would the teacher know that the students have mastered the learning objectives? Regarding the expected engagement level, would the students find the activities interesting and engaging? Submit the URL for the lesson plan you found and your analysis of it to LoudCloud. Some helpful websites for locating lesson plans are: http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/ http://www.readwritethink.org/ https://sharemylesson.com/ (this is free, but you do have to join the site to use it) http://lessonplanspage.com/ http://www.teacher.org/ GCU format is required. Do not submit any assignment without your Name and other Heading details included on Page 1. All work should be double-spaced. The template is attached. It is required to be used. NOTE: This assignment does have a rubric. Please review it before submission. Clinical Field Experience Verification Form: Your completed Clinical Field Experience Verification Form AND your Evaluating Lesson Plans assignment MUST BOTH BE POSTED TOGETHER in the same drop box++ BY MIDNIGHT ARIZONA TIME this Sunday. Per GCU policy, I am not allowed to accept or grade assignments submitted AFTER the midnight deadline. ++ Way back in your UNV103/108 class there was a Tutorial provided for Submitting Multiple Files in Loud Cloud. Take another look at this Tutorial. Submitting Multiple Documents to the Assignment Dropbox Tutorial This is a brief and helpful tutorial on how to submit an assignment in the Loud Cloud System. The tutorial will walk you through how to submit a single submission, or a submission with multiple documents, how to submit to Turn It In (when directed by your instructor), and how to make sure you have finally submitted to your instructor. http://lc.gcumedia.com/zwebassets/courseMaterialPages/igc100_submitting-multiple-documents-to-the-assignment-dropbox-tutorial-v1.1.php Reminder: Not submitting your completed Clinical Field Experience Verification Form will result in an automatic 20% deduction from your final assignment, per GCU policy and the Student Handbook. To help you with this final assignment AND task, I have created a video. Please watch it using this link: http://youtu.be/xdVetqKAcy4?hd=1 Feel free to post questions you may have in the QTI or Individual Forums. I am looking forward to seeing your final assignments!
