This lesson plan was an assignment from my ED451 (A/V Ed.) with Dr. Cyrus at the University of Guam. We were to create a lesson plan using the ASSURE model, that would have students utilize a digital spreadsheet.
The learners are second grade students between the ages of 7 and 8 years old. There are no students with mental or physical disabilities. The students have diverse cultural backgrounds – Chamoru, Filipino, Caucasian, Palauan. All students come from middle class families. Usually, students are average to above average achievers. Class size is small with only 16 students, 7 boys and 9 girls.
