Problem Solving Lesson Plan 

One of the most crucial components of instructing a mathematics lesson is to find a way for the instruction to be relevant to the students. Another is how mathematics can apply real-world context giving students the chance to problem solve. Verbal and nonverbal communication techniques are strategies used during the lesson that guide the teacher to meet the needs of all students. Nonverbal communication techniques may consist of environmental clues and manipulatives that can be added to enhance the lesson.

This lesson will be focused on the content area of problem solving.

Part 1: Lesson Plan

For this assignment, select a K-8 grade level and state standard in the area of measurement and use the "COE Lesson Plan Template" to design an original lesson plan. Be sure to focus on problem solving in a real-world context (e.g., building a house, measuring for carpet, etc.), and include a media component to enhance the lesson to facilitate conceptual understanding and higher order thinking processes

Use the “Class Profile” to decide on differentiation strategies to meet the diverse needs of students. 

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, provide a rationale that explains how you will use effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques to foster students’ active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the mathematics content area. Explain mathematical instructional strategies that create a real-world context and relevance to students.

Support your findings with three scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Clinical Field Experience C: Mathematics Mini-Lesson 

Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.

For this field experience, you will design and implement a mathematics lesson to the selected group of students from your previous field experience.

Part 1: Mini-Lesson Plan

Prior to going into your clinical field experience classroom this week, use the data received from the pre-assessment to complete the “Math Mini-Lesson Plan” template. This mini-lesson plan will be administered to the selected group of students to support instruction to meet the selected standards.

Your mini-lesson should include:

  • Math standard, learning objectives, grade level, and brief description of the unit
  • Instructional strategy
  • Description of math learning activity that is directly related to the data received from the pre-assessment
  • Formative assessment

Part 2: Mini-Lesson Plan Implementation

After completing the “Math Mini-Lesson Plan,” share it with your mentor teacher for feedback. Provided permission, teach the mini-lesson plan to the small group of selected students. During your lesson, ensure you are answering questions from your students, asking questions that support critical thinking and problem solving, and observing the understanding from each student (this might require formative assessments before, during, and after the lesson to determine understanding).

If you are not able to implement the lesson, speak with your instructor for an alternate assignment.

Part 3: Reflection

In 250-500 words, reflect and discuss the process of using pre-assessment data to develop a lesson plan and on your experiences teaching the lesson (if applicable). Consider:

  • How the data supported the planned instruction, selected instructional strategies, and differentiation strategies in identifying strengths, meeting learning needs, and promoting student growth.
  • The professional expectations to maintain privacy and ethical use of assessment data.
  • After the lesson was presented, modifications that supported the learning.
  • How this lesson supports short-term and long-term planning.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Document the locations and hours you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.

Submit the Clinical Field Experience Verification Form to LoudCloud in the last topic. Directions for submitting can be found on the College of Education site in the Student Success Center.
