Lesson Plan and TIP Model Integration

  1. 1. Multi-Media Project DraftSevere Weather UnitLindsay Marquette and Amanda Knoxaknox6/10/2011-285752600960<br />Day 1 Lesson Plan: Introduction to Severe Weather<br />Phase 3: Learning Objectives:<br />The purpose of this lesson is to introduce students to the types, importance and hazards of severe weather. This lesson will help prepare them for a later lesson which discusses the specific features of a tornado and its potentially devastating effects.<br />At the conclusion of this lesson:<br />Objective(Skill or Knowledge)Excellent/MasteryGood/AverageNeeds ImprovementCan define severe weather and name examplesCan name and describe 3-4 types of severe weather.Can generally describe severe weather and name 1-2 types.Cannot clearly describe severe weather type sand cannot name any features.Describe the characteristics of severe weatherCan list 5 facts about a severe weather.Can list 3 facts about severe weather.Can list 1-2 facts about severe weather.Using technologyCan access all of the links in the assignmentsCan find most of the links, but may need some assistanceRequires help to locate the websites. Show difficulty in following the assignmentShowing ApplicationCan demonstrate, calculate and classify the types of severe weather.Can discuss and classify with assistanceNeeds assistance to classify any aspect of severe weather<br />Phase 4: Design Integration Strategies<br />Methods<br />This lesson begins with a short video clip of an example of severe weather. It begins to build a student’s basic knowledge on severe weather, its characteristics and potential dangers. Each assignment provides opportunities for discussions and self-discovery. This lesson includes interaction with websites and videos. The students can work together in groups to further explore severe weather.<br />Technology<br />They types of technology which will support the students in their learning include the internet, video recordings, and websites. Other tools may include software, art tools, and audio/visual equipment during presentations. Students will be able to have a review of the tools and technology to help them prepare for the assignments.<br />Phase 5: Prepare the Instructional Environment<br />Equipment:<br />The lesson requires that each student have individual and group access to a computer with an internet connection. If the lesson is to be completed in the classroom, perhaps the teacher can rotate the students in turn, to give each student some practice time with the assignments. The teacher will need to prepare the classroom by turning on each computer and verifying that the internet is working on each unit. Also, the teacher will need to verify that the lesson links are still active and haven’t been moved since the lesson was devised.<br />Phase 6: Evaluate and Revise Integration Strategies<br />Assignments<br />This lesson includes a written assignment which reflects the work for each website and video. This assignment can be graded.<br />Assessment<br />A quiz can be given which determines how much of the lesson each student retained. The quiz will focus on definitions, mastery of concepts and an overall understanding of the types of severe weather.<br />Observation Scorecard<br />The teacher can observe the students as they interact with each other. They can also observe how the student progresses with the internet assignments. A scorecard can help the teacher monitor the results of each activity.<br />Assignments and Instructional Interactions<br />Watch video:<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgoNJ0CfdSQ&feature=fvst (volcano eruption)<br />http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/player/- (earthquake)<br />http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/player/ (hurricane)<br />Answer the questions:<br />What were some of the things you saw in the clips?<br />How would you feel if you were caught in severe weather?<br />Go to: Severe Storms Website<br />http://severestorm.webs.com/whatissevereweather.htm<br />Read the information provided on what causes severe weather.<br />Complete the worksheet provided using the information from the webpage<br />http://severestorm.webs.com/typesofseverestorms.htm<br />Read the information provided about the types of severe weather<br />Draw a picture representing the 7 types of severe weather presented. Label each picture with 3 characteristics or facts about that specific type of severe weather.<br />Write a brief paragraph describing your experiences with severe weather. Be sure to use the facts and terminology from the websites in your response.<br />Go to: Weather Wiz Kids<br />http://www.weatherwizkids.com/<br />In groups, go to the website and click on your assigned topic.<br />Read the information on your topic.

This lesson will help prepare them for a later lesson which discusses the problems, social impacts, and potential solutions for severe weather.<br />At the conclusion of this lesson:<br />Objective(Skill or Knowledge)Excellent/MasteryGood/AverageNeeds ImprovementCan define severe weather and name examplesCan name 3-4 defining features of severe weatherCan generally describe severe weather and name 1-2 features.Cannot clearly define severe weather and cannot name any features.Describe the characteristics of a tornadoCan list 5 facts about a tornadoCan list 3 facts about a tornadoCan list 1-2 facts about a tornadoUsing technologyCan access all of the links in the assignmentsCan find most of the links, but may need some assistanceRequires help to locate the websites. Show difficulty in following the assignmentShowing ApplicationCan demonstrate, calculate and classify various aspects of tornadosCan discuss and classify with assistanceNeeds assistance to classify any aspect of tornados<br />Phase 4: Design Integration Strategies<br />Methods<br />This lesson begins with a lecture which refers to the overview of weather given in Lesson 1. It begins to build links between general weather knowledge and severe weather. Each assignment provides opportunities for discussions and storytelling. This lesson includes interaction with websites, simulations, and videos. The students can work together in groups to design a safety plan for their “household”.<br />Technology<br />They types of technology which will support the students in their learning include the internet, video recordings, and websites. Other tools may include software, art tools, and audio/visual equipment during presentations. Students will be able to have a review of the tools and technology to help them prepare for the assignments.<br />Phase 5: Prepare the Instructional Environment<br />Equipment:<br />The lesson requires that each student have individual and group access to a computer with an internet connection.

This assignment can be graded.<br />Assessment<br />A quiz can be given which determines how much of the lesson each student retained. The quiz will focus on definitions, safety rules, and scientific data about tornados.<br />Observation Scorecard<br />The teacher can observe the students as they interact with each other.
