Design & Develop Digital Age Learning and Assessment
In this area I was not as knowledgeable as I thought I was. I found making a lesson plan needed to be well thought out and incorporate state standards. While designing a lesson plan for my ED 202 I also learned that technology should be incorporated in the plan as much as possible. This will help to keep the students attentive and motivated about the lesson. This is a example of a lesson plan I did for a 6th grade Louisiana History class.
6th Grade Louisiana History
Unit Theme: Early American History
Alignment to Standards
Write out CCSS standards: Provide an accurate summary from prior knowledge and opinions about early American History and Louisiana History.
TLW: Be sure that objectives are aligned to the standards and they are measurable. Do not use “using” or “by”.
The learner will learn events and people in Early American History, leading up to the founding of Louisiana.
List the academic vocabulary that you will teach during this lesson. You may acknowledge if the words fall into Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3. There’s a link in Moodle for more information about Tiered Vocabulary.

A quick assignment that is completed at the start of class. Kahoot.it Quiz can be given before class to learn the students prior knowledge on early American History.
Establishing Prior Knowledge
Discuss the bellringer questions on kahoot to get the correct answers. Students can also discuss what comes to mind that was not in the kahoot questions.
Communicate Purpose and Relevance
Students should be able to tie today’s society to early American History. So we will discuss how early American History effects the students today making it relevant to the students.
Have rewards for top answers on kahoot.it For example designed pencils, candy, homework pass, school or class bucks.
The students will learn the history of Louisiana starting with the Louisiana Purchase and early American History.
Video review to establish prior knowledge
Checking for Understanding
Several students can be called upon and asked specific questions of things discussed so far in the class. Also students could be encouraged to point out anything left out or how early American and Louisiana affects them.
https://www.google.com/earth/ Students can be given a virtual tour of the areas in early American History to see terrains.
(YOU DO) use technology*
The most important points that will need to be remembered by the student could be written down on a projector for the students to copy down for notes.
Formal and Informal Assessment
Assessment for Learning
Students can be given a quiz of the most important information on paper or using kahoot.
Formal Assessment would be given by test or research paper.
Early finishers can read there text which will be assigned nightly.
Reiterate important events that students brought up while bringing up important facts left out.
Student will read text and discuss with parents about what their parents know about Louisiana History and write it out to turn in for class.
Special Needs /Accommodations
Individual Accommodations: Highlight or star all accommodations used
These are areas I will focus on for my special needs students.
Small Group*- to encourage the special need students.
Cooperative* Groups- encouraging working with others.
Visual Aids**- for attentiveness
Use of manipulatives**- to keep attentiveness and good behaviors
Reduce Distractions- students will sit in front of the class, but situated among the students without special needs.
Oral Reading**- will also encourage learning.
Other: I will need to monitor my 504 students and 1 with dyslexia. Assignment will need to be shorten and visual learning will need to be incorporated.
