ECH 335 Week 6 Social Studies Lesson Plan
Observe a social studies lesson in your K-3 practicum classroom.
Create a Venn diagram to compare the observed lesson to the lesson viewed online in Module 3. Identify the lesson by its link.
Design a social studies lesson plan for a K, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade classroom. Consider individual differences in ability, culture, and language. Lesson plan templates are available in the Student Success Center. Include the following in your lesson plan:
Clear-cut objectives that align to NAEYC and NCSS standards. Relevant materials and resources. Differentiation of instruction to address the diverse needs of students. Name the differentiation strategies for the specific diverse groups. Informal and/or formal assessments that align with objectives. Authentic, formative, and/or summative assessments. APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
