LESSON PLAN 

GUIDED PRACTICE

    INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

    Students are expected to work independently on most tasks. However, there are some activities where pair or group work may be more appropriate. These should be used sparingly and with a clear purpose.

      HOMEWORK

      Homework is not practiced in all schools.  In this curriculum, homework is used for additional practice from daily lessons.  Assignment of homework should be done on a case-by-case basis and working in conjunction with the student's home support team.

        EXIT TICKET

        After the practice and misconception review, instruct the students to complete the Exit Ticket.  This is a formative assessment to inform teaching for future lessons.

          FORMATIVE

          Progress Check is after an exit ticket and an additional misconception review. This is a formative assessment to inform teaching for future lesson cycles.

            SUMMATIVE

            Summative assessment evaluates student learning at the end of a large lesson or unit. Summative assessments are the end progress monitoring point in data collection.

              REVIEW

              Closing the lesson is an important part of the instructional process. It allows students to summarize what they have learned and gives them a chance to ask any final questions. The closure should also provide a smooth transition to the next lesson.
