Pre-written Lesson Plans Rationale for Step 1 • One hour course = • Limited time for students to devote • Limited face time in class • Same lesson plan = • Master Teacher modeling of lesson plan in class • Allows for deeper instructional time for pedagogical content • Minimizes unknown factors for Step 1 students • Increases the likelihood for extremely positive initial teaching experiences • Streamlines materials management • Strengthens the feedback from TNT observers and mentor teachers
Pre-written lesson-Teach 1 • Window – February 25-March 8 • Investigating Simple Circuits • Develops concepts about how to wire up a cell and a bulb and to clarify that electricity flows. • Use trail and error to build a circuit that lights a bulb. • TNT student requirements: • Locate appropriate TEKS • Write objectives for the lesson • Write the big idea and/or conceptual understanding for the lesson • Practice with partner and deliver lesson • Adapt and modify lesson for grade level per your direction with suggestions from TNT staff
Pre-written lesson-Teach 2 • Window – March 18 - 28 • Winding Up Magnetism • Observe and learn how the number of winds (e.g., coils) of wire around a core affects the strength of magnetism. • Use a basic circuit, a wire, and washers to measure the strength of magnetism. • TNT student requirements: • Locate appropriate TEKS • Write objectives for the lesson • Write the big idea and/or conceptual understanding for the lesson • Practice with partner and deliver lesson • Adapt and modify lesson for grade level per your direction • Identify level of questions from Blooms Taxonomy and write 2-4 additional questions to embellish the lesson
Pre-written lesson-Teach 3 • Window – April 8 - 19 • Changing the Strength of an Electromagnet • Explore different ways to change the strength of an electromagnet, including tighter coils, number of D-cells, different wire gauge. • Use a basis circuit board and multiple variables to plan and conduct an experiment. • TNT student requirement: • Locate appropriate TEKS • Write objectives for the lesson • Write the big idea and/or conceptual understanding for the lesson • Practice with partner and deliver lesson • Adapt and modify lesson for grade level per your direction • Identify level of questions from Blooms Taxonomy and create 6-8 additional questions to embellish the lesson
SIOP FRAMEWORK: The 8 Components • Preparation • Building Background • Comprehensible Input • Strategies • Interaction • Practice/Application • Lesson Delivery • Review/Assessment
SIOP FRAMEWORK: The 30 Features Lesson Preparation—1) content objectives, 2) language objectives, 3) content concepts, 4) supplemental materials, 5) adaptations for proficiency levels, and 6) meaningful activities Building Background—7) explicit links to students’ background experience, 8) explicit links between past learning and new concepts, 9) key vocabulary emphasized Comprehensible Input—10) speech for proficiency levels, 11) clear explanation of academic task, 12) variety of techniques for content clarity Strategies—13) opportunity to use learning strategies, 14) scaffolding, 15) question levels vary Interaction—16) frequent opportunity for discussion, 17) group configuration, 18) wait time, 19) opportunity to clarify key concepts Practice/Application—20) hands-on materials, 21) activities designed for the application of content, 22) activities integrating all language skills Lesson Delivery—23) content objectives supported by lesson deliver, 24) language objectives supported by lesson delivery, 25) engaged students 90% to 100% of time in class, 26) pacing appropriate to students’ ability Review/Assessment—27) review of key vocabulary, 28) review of content concepts, 29) feedback to students, 30) assessment of student comprehension
