Effective teachers plan ahead! In this assignment, you will research resources for teaching and learning and complete the following sections of your Comprehensive Lesson Plan:
- Teaching/Learning Resource Analysis
- DAP Analysis
First,take time to research teaching and learning resources/strategies.
- When completing research, be sure that you locate reputable sites. State and national organizations as well as the School of Education Guide are great places to start. Wiki and About.com are not acceptable because they can be manipulated by anyone and this reduces the credibility of the sites.
- As you research, consider how you will use the resource in your daily practice as an early educator.
Next, choose one resource from your research to use in comprehensive lesson plan. You must identify how the resource or strategy will be applied to one of the lesson plan components stated above.
- For example, if you choose to research a specific teaching strategy such as asking open-ended questions, you would need to address how the educator would use this strategy in the lesson’s directions.
Then, complete the lesson plan components listed above and SAVE using the new file name for this assignment.
