Differentiated Activities 

Differentiation is one of the most important considerations when preparing a lesson plan for all students. Differentiation guides the teacher in making the instructional modifications required to meet the diverse needs of all students, plan for varying levels of development, and create opportunities for various approaches to learning and performance.

This lesson will be focused in the content area of geometry.

Part 1: Differentiation Lesson Plan

For this assignment, select a K-8 grade level and state standard in the area of geometry and use the “COE Lesson Plan Template” to design an original lesson plan. Be sure to examine instructional opportunities that can be adapted to meet the diverse needs of students, create learning environments that foster active engagement through supportive, and design assessments that align to learning objectives and support learning needs.

Use the “Class Profile” to differentiate to meet the diverse needs of students. 

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on your lesson plan and the differentiation strategies utilized to meet the diverse needs of students. How can technology-enriched learning experiences provide various opportunities to differentiate? How can you collaborate with and incorporate the input, contributions, and knowledge of families, colleagues, and other professionals in order to support the diverse needs of students?

Support your reflection with at least two scholarly resources.

Clinical Field Experience B: Mathematical Pre-Assessment 

Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Part 1: Pre-assessment and Implementation

Follow these steps for this week’s field experience:

  1. From your previous observation in your field experience classroom, you identified 3-5 students, above, at, or below standard achievement in the classroom environment that would benefit from additional learning support. You also identified the standards and unit that your mentor class is currently learning.
  2. With this information, complete the “Math Pre-Assessment” where you develop a pre-assessment in the math content area that aligns to the standards and unit that your mentor teacher shared with you during Clinical Field Experience A. This pre-assessment can be oral, written, or completed through technology. The pre-assessment should identify ho well selected students know the concept and provide data that would allow you to determine learning gaps and needs in order to develop an appropriate lesson to support learning needs.
  3. Share the pre-assessment with your mentor teacher and ask for his or her feedback.
  4. Administer the pre-assessment that you created with the selected group of students and use the data to prepare for Clinical Field Experience C.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on your field experience and the steps you took to identify students for the pre-assessment. Consider:

  1. How did the pre-assessment provide data to determine the learning gaps and needs of students?
  2. What challenges did you face when developing and delivering the pre-assessment?
  3. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
