1. Emily Butcher
Students ages 10-19, 15 in total, 8 males & 7 females, all mildly vision impaired, just
moved to US from Russia
S- State Objectives
During this teaching experience, my students will learn different activities that go on on
the fourth of July in the US. The students will learn these activities through games, songs, and
listening to videos. By the end of the week, the students will be able to recite the different
activities and meanings with 75% of accuracy.
S- Select Methods, Media, & Materials
There will be songs about America’s independence and videos about the fourth of July. I
will get some videos from youtube.com and off the independence page website.
U- Utilize Media & Materials
The students will be listening to the videos & songs. I will pull the videos up on my
computer, and play them so the whole class can hear them and listen carefully.
R- Require Learner Participation
The students will listen to the videos. If needed, we will play the videos more than once. I
will ask questions after each video or song to see if the children are grasping the concepts. Then
we will play memory games to make sure they are truly understanding but in a more fun way.
2. E- Evaluate & Revise
I will orally ask the students different questions about the holiday. I will ask for specific
activities and meanings of the fourth of July. I will see if they can sing the songs. I want to make
sure they understand what the holiday is even though they are learning about it in a fun way.
