Background Information • Where does this lesson fit into the overall planning? • Consider your students’ prior knowledgeStudents have had previous lessons and practice identifying a variety of text featuresincluding titles, headings, indexes, photographs, and glossaries. In this lesson, studentswill use text that supports the science curriculum to develop an understanding of howthe headings help to identify the main idea related to human organ systems. Futurelessons in identifying the topic sentence and supporting points in a paragraph willcontinue to support students in their understanding of human organ systems.

Learning Goal http://www.slideshare.net/mrjohnsonsclass/learninggoalsandsuccesscriteria• A learning goal is the specific curriculum expectation re-phrased• A learning goal is in student-friendly language
Learning Goal What will students say they are learning about?We are learning about…text features and how they help us toidentify and summarize important information in order tounderstand what we are reading
Success Criteria http://www.slideshare.net/mrjohnsonsclass/learninggoalsandsuccesscriteria• Success criteria are ‘I can’ statements that specifically outline what the students need to do in order to achieve their learning goal.“… success criteria summarize the key steps or ingredients the student needs in order to fulfill the learning intention (goal) – the main things to do, include or focus on.” Shirley Clarke (Ireland School Board)
Effective Success Criteria... http://www.slideshare.net/mrjohnsonsclass/learninggoalsandsuccesscriteria• Are linked to the learning goal• Are specific to an activity• Are discussed and agreed with students prior to undertaking the activity• Provide a scaffold and focus for students while engaged in the activity• Are used as the basis for feedback and peer/self assessment
Why are Success Criteria Important? http://www.slideshare.net/mrjohnsonsclass/learninggoalsandsuccesscriteria• Improve understanding• Empower students• Encourage independent learning• Enable accurate feedback• Enable students to be accountable for their learning
Success Criteria What criteria will students need to demonstrate in order to achieve the learning goal?I can…identify and name a variety of text featuresexplain how text features help me to understand what I am readingfind important detailsfind and use evidence to support my choices (What makes me think that?)organize my ideas
Assessment Purpose Is the lesson working? Are students learning? Student learning in all lessons is purposefully assessed formally or informally To check these boxes: •Double click on one. •Indicate Checked or Not checked •Click OK
Assessment Strategies What will students say, write (or represent), and/or do to demonstrate their learning?Students will read text at their appropriate reading level anduse the text features to help them identify the main ideas.Students will summarize the text and write 3 main ideas.

Assessment Tools Which of the success criteria are you targeting in this lesson to assess your students’ learning?Students can…identify and name a variety of text featuresexplain how text features help them to understand whatthey are reading In what manner will you record that learning in relation to your criteria?

Assessment Tools How will you record learning?RubricAnecdotal NotesChecklistOther (e.g., Rating Scale)
Anecdotal Record/Notes Accurately identify the text features Write a summary (3 key points with supporting detail) Clearly explain the text feature that was most useful in summarizing information Give one example of how that text feature helped to understand what they were reading

Learning Skills & Work Habits How will students demonstrate achievement of the learning skill(s)? •Responsibility •Organization •Independent Work •Collaboration •Initiative •Self-Regulation Be specific about how they will be demonstrated in the lessonIndependent Work - independently monitor, assess, and revise plans to complete thesummary writing based on goals for organizing ideas and word choice in writingCollaboration - share information, resource, and expertise and promote criticalthinking to solve problems and make decisions when identifying the main idea andsummarizing

Accommodations How will you adapt the lesson to meet the needs of individual students? Next term this will be required. You may begin to work with developing accommodating students with your associate.
Materials/Resources What will you need to prepare in advance? (Teachers/Volunteers/Guests, Student Materials, Equipment)Healthy Eating Text for Guided Reading, Matching Game for TextFeatures (cards and text), Text on the heart with text features andwithout, Levelled text for small group activity on different body systems.
Teaching Goals/Other Considerations …personal teaching goal (e.g., questioning, classroom management, timing); other considerations (e.g., student groupings, safety considerations, environment, room layout)Teaching Goals: In this lesson I am going to provide more wait time forstudents to respond.Other Considerations: Group students according to their reading leveland provide appropriately levelled text on organ systems
Now that you have the end in mind, your destination (what your students will know and be able to do), you can plan the journey…your lesson.Page 2IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LESSON
Teacher/Student What is the teacher doing? What are the students doing?
Timing and Groupings How long will this portion of the lesson take? Who will be involved? •Whole group •Small group •Individuals
Focus Question How will you connect the lesson to the learning goal and success criteria? Students should be able to be able to provide an answer to this focus question a the end of the lesson. How and when will you make students aware of the focus?How does using text features help you to identify and summarizeimportant information in order understand what you are reading?
Mental Set How will you activate prior knowledge and hook students into the lesson? How will you encourage students to be engaged in the lesson? Often this is done briefly with the whole class/large group.Students identify prior knowledge by playing a game where they matchthe word card for the specific text features to where they see it in thetext e.g. place the word card for heading where they see the heading(s)in the text.
Body How will the lesson be organized to address and assess the curriculum expectations? (input, modeling, checking for understanding, guided practice, independent practice) This is the majority of the lesson. It is the step-by-step procedure, detailed enough for your associate teacher, supply teacher or faculty supervisor to teach from.
Closure How will the lesson be summarized by and/or with the students? How will you know students achieved the success criteria for the lesson? Connect to the focus question from the beginning of the lesson.Time to Share:Whole Group SharingHow does using text features help you to identify and summarize important information inorder understand what you are reading?Assessment for learning opportunity while students are demonstrating their understanding oftext features and how they help them to understand what they are reading (anecdotal notes)
Personal Reflections• It can be noted throughout the How effective was I in meeting lesson my teaching goal? What went• It can be recorded on separate well? What would I do paper or electronically but should differently? How do I know? be accessible to your CSU practicum partners What might be some possible ways to overcome or work around any challenges that emerged from the lesson? What do I need to think about in the next lesson? What does the lesson reveal about how I view children, teaching and learning?
Associate Teacher Comments Feedback related to personal teaching goal (e.g., what went well and suggestions to think about) • This can be recorded by you or the associate • It can be noted throughout the lesson • It can be recorded on separate paper or electronically but should be accessible to CSU practicum partners

Use the Specific Expectations• identify and compare • explain the various polygons relationships between (i.e., triangles, quadrilat different types of erals, pentagons, hexag quadrilaterals (e.g., a ons, heptagons, octago square is a rectangle ns) and sort them by because a square has their geometric four sides and four right properties (i.e., number angles; a rhombus is a of sides; side lengths; parallelogram because number of interior opposite sides of a angles; number of right rhombus are parallel); angles);
