  7. 7. LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE Grade Level: Class Time: It’s OK to have more than one class period per lesson—just indicate which sections will be done for each Essential Understanding: What will students learn? This is not CONTENTspecific but SKILL specific—should align to assessment Learning Outcomes: What will students be able to do? (Based on Essential Understanding) Common Core Standard: One lesson cannot realistically address more than one CC standard, and may only address PART of a standard—if so, highlight the particular skill you’re covering IFC Skill: This should be aligned to the assessment/graphic organizer Questioning: What are some questions that you’ll ask students? (These should be rooted in the text)
  8. 8. Mini Lesson Guided Practice Independent Practice Learning/Teaching Activities CT=Classroom Resources Teacher L=Librarian AKA: ―The Hook‖/Introduction/Anticipatory Set + Modeling Explains what students are expected to learn “I DO” Model what you want students to practice Make sure guided practice matches independent practice “WE DO” “YOU DO” Differentiation Closing/ Sharing/ Reflection Assessment AKA ―Closure‖ This will always be the ESIFC Graphic Organizer Follow up: Same skill, different content Extension(s): Scaffolding—pushes out & up, next level
