September Safety Drill
Teachers, on prep, will participate in a walk-through exercise with me during each drill. I will send additional information later in the week.
Elkhart Community Schools
We do not have the same kind of lesson plans as the traditional classroom teacher. Our instructional plans are more broad. Our lesson plan must include goal-setting, ways to improve self-efficacy, and developing strategies for dealing with the unique academic and behavioral needs of our students.
Our lesson plans should ensure that all students can:
navigate Apex Learning curriculum
utilize Apex Learning resources and tools
demonstrate effective use of PACE strategies
identify ways he/she can increase performance
reflect on behaviors that influence (good or bad) performance
utilize problem-solving skills (i.e. Think through the Problem)
set and achieve goals
Reflection for Kristen:
As I walk through classrooms this week, what evidence of an instructional plan would I be able to identify? How does your lesson plan reflect a tiered intervention model?
