CURRICULUM ASSESSMENT RELATIONSHIPS ENVIRONMENT
C1- Plans informative, developmentally appropriate lessons and/or units INTASC 2, 3, 4, 7 NBPTS 1,2
I designed a lesson plan for the head start class at Manchester Intermediate School. The lesson was covering how well the students could identify letters in the alphabet. This lesson was appropriate for the age level, and the children were working with this in the classroom as well. I wrote a reflection on the lesson plan and have a rubric from the teacher.
I also designed another lesson plan; this lesson plan is for third graders learning punctuation and capitalization.

I understand that all students learn at different rates and have different learning strategies.

I wrote a reflection on the lesson plan we presented in class.
C5- Teaches students to use critical thinking and problem solving strategies INTASC 4, 5, 7 NBPTS1,2
C6- Uses effective questioning strategies INTASC 4, 5, 7 NBPTS 1,2
In my step-by-step plan of my lesson plan, I composted a list of questions to ask. These questions are asked before and after the lesson on punctuation and capitalization. This is an effective use of questioning strategies because I used Bloom’s Taxonomy and Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences as I composed the list.

In learning through movement, my group and I dramatized a children's literature book. We made puppets for the book, and performed a puppet show. The video and rubric represents an appropriate tool to assess learning. The video is uploaded at YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJItjV2ndbU
