Lesson Planning

Sample Lesson Plans

Sample Lesson Plan 1 is the first lesson which I designed for a unit. The first half of this lesson depicts the administered pretest and first unit lesson. This lesson plan is an excellent example of formal assessment, ESE modifications, and engaging activities.

Sample Lesson Plan 2 is the second lesson plan for the same unit. This lesson plan showcases time managment planning in the shortened class length and immediate practical application of unit standards.

Formative Assessment

Sample Lesson Plan 3 features aural and visual assessment of the entire classroom during individual student-teacher lessons. During this lesson, students were to meet with me individually for checks on their German IPA pronunciation. This formative assessment helped prepare them for their future class performance of thier piece.

Sample Lesson Plan 4 is another lesson plan featured from my unit. In this lesson, I assign the students an assignment to self-reflect on their individual performances. This directly prepared them for their posttest exam and enhanced the ensemble's seight-reading ability in rehearsal.

Lesson Standard Objective Assessment Name Assessment Description How did this guide my teaching?
Sample 3 MU.912.S.3.5 Students will review the German IPA symbols for ichlaut and achlaut. Students will be able to perform these IPA symbols to a 90% accuracy. IPA Check 2 Students will speak through the German IPA for their selected piece. They will be graded on accuracy of pronunciation based on the IPA learned in class. With this fomative assessnment, I was able to assess which IPA symbols needed to be retaught and which students needed extra help with their pronunciation.
Sample 4 MU.912.C.3.1 Students will identify rhythmic sight-reading mistakes and describe the correct solution to a 75% accuracy. Expressive Singing Reflection Students will record themselves sight-reading an exercise. They will write a short self-reflection, 3-5 sentences, evaluating their use of learned expressive singing rules and sight-reading accuracy. This formative assessment was designed to help so that studnets could practice this method of assessment fot the posttest. This assessment also encouraged students to be self-reflective; an important skill for life success.
