- Lesson Objectives - What the students should learn from this lesson presented as an "I can " statement.
- Office Hours - List your office hours (days and times) and how to reach you. For this eLearning day, all teachers will list Friday, April 27 8:10-9:00 AM and 2:30-3:00 PM as their office hours. You should include that your email address and list Riverton Parke's phone number (765) 569-2045. Click here for more information on office hours.
- Introduction - Something quick to hook your students and explain the lesson objectives.
- Instruction ("I do.") - This is the teaching component of your lesson. This can be review material or a continuation of your current classroom lessons. It should be curriculum instruction, not giving directions for activities and assignments.
- Activity (“We do.”) -An activity that will allow students to practice or explore the content of this lesson. This section should be more student-focused, gradually releasing independence to students.
- Assessment (“You do.”) - An assignment that will require students to work independently to demonstrate understanding. This may include the use of one of our digital curriculum programs (IXL, ALEKS, Achieve3000, etc.), a quiz, or another type of assignment. Work may be submitted digitally or in person. This is the portion of the lesson you will grade and use to determine attendance.
- Completion Checklist - A simple checklist of the things the students should have done to complete this lesson.
Special Education Modifications
- Teachers should work with SPED teachers to make sure their lessons are meeting the requirements of IEP's or to provide an alternative lesson for these students.
- Teachers must indicate that these requirements are accounted for when submitting each lesson.
