A large part of a teacher’s responsibility is lesson plan development. The practice of being prepared with well thought out lessons can support learners in meeting learning outcomes.
For this assignment, use the grade level PRE-K. Develop a lesson plan using the “COE Lesson Plan Template” that prepares students for learning and is meaningful and appropriate. Consider your field experiences as you develop your lesson plan. I used Standard LDC 12e, which are standards for the state of South Carolina. LDC 12e: Demonstrate an interest in learning the alphabet.
The lesson plan must focus on a minimum of one standard LDC 12e within any selected content area. Include differentiated instruction for above average and below average students, and the use of assistive technology for the instruction and assessments. Additionally, include an engaging homework practice activity to continue learning at home that involves the children’s families. Ensure the pre-assessment data was ethically utilized to determine appropriate content area, standards, and differentiated needs for instruction provided.
Include any of the following strategies in your lesson plan you feel will help the students succeed:
In addition, in 250-500 words, explain how you used your field experience data to develop this lesson to meet the diverse needs of students. Address how using ethical, responsible assessment practices promotes positive outcomes for each child.
Submit your lesson plan and reflection as one deliverable.
Support your plan with 2-3 scholarly resources.
APA format is required for essays only. Solid academic writing is expected for all presentation formats, and in-text citations and references should be presented using guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
Requirements: Fill out the COE lesson plan attached and write a reflection that is between 250-500 words. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
- Direct instruction

- Experiential learning
- Independent study
- Interactive instruction
Learners perceive and comprehend information differently. Your goal in this section is to explain how you would present content in various ways to meet the needs of different learners. For example, you may present the material using guided notes, graphic organizers, video or other visual media, annotation tools, anchor charts, hands-on manipulatives, adaptive technologies, etc.
In a bulleted list, describe the materials you will use to differentiate instruction and how you will use these materials throughout the lesson to support learning. Bold any materials you will need to prepare for the lesson.
- I will use a Venn diagram graphic organizer to teach students how to compare and contrast the two main characters in the read-aloud story.
- I will model one example on the whiteboard before allowing students to work on the Venn diagram graphic organizer with their elbow partner.
Explain how you will differentiate materials for each of the following groups:
- English language learners (ELL):
I will ask the children to join dots on worksheets of the alphabets they recognize from the mentioned objects or names.
- Students with special needs:
I will use alphabet blocks and songs to ask the children to clap along to the letters they see and hear.
