SINGLE SUBJECT CREDENTIAL PROGRAM

LESSON PLAN FORMAT


Last Revised: August 10, 2014
Directions: The lesson plan functions as a guide map to your instruction. Deliberately choose several strategies/scaffolds that will
help to guide your students through your lesson. Identify the estimated time frames for each activity in the Lesson Introduction,
Body, and Closure sections. After considering the needs of the majority of your students, remember to consider the specific needs
of striving readers, English learners, students with learning needs, and advanced students. This will help you with pacing and
delivery of the lesson. Develop the structure of notes, if you will lecture; the directions for any activities; and details about the
examples you will use, if appropriate; and place at the end of the lesson plan along with any handouts that will be used.
Note: The boxes in the format will expand as it is a Word document.

Informal PM

This assessment is
intended to
monitor student
progression and
assess the level of
understanding
during lecture

This assessment
will be
administered
during the lecture,
the class will be
asked questions
pertaining to the
lecture to check
for understanding

Student answers
will be corrected
and correct
answers will be
expanded upon

To check for
understanding of
horizontally
launched projectile
equations

The students will


be tasked with an
assignment,
solving horizontal
projection
problems, this will
be individual
assessment,
walking around
and checking
answers and
answering
questions

The students will


be informed at this
moment of correct
or incorrect
answers and
answers and
processes will be
explained
individually

This will allow the


teacher to assess
the understanding
of the class,
knowing whether
the style of
teaching is
working and
whether the pace
or style needs to
be modified
This will allow for
an understanding
of how the lecture
went and the
comfort level of
the students in
solving equations

DEMONSTRATION OF HORIZONTALLY
LAUNCHED PROJECTILES. STUDENTS WILL BE
ASKED TO PREDICT WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN
TWO OBJECTS ARE LAUNCHED FROM THE
SAME HEIGHT, ONE BEING DROPPED AND THE
OTHER LAUNCHED PERFECTLY HORIZONTAL
-THE DEMONSTRATION WILL THEN BE PLAYED
AND STUDENTS WILL SEE THAT THE OBJECTS
DROP AT THE SAME TIME
-STUDENTS WILL THEN BE ASKED TO
HYPOTHESIZE WHY THIS OCCURS

RATIONALE SECTION: STUDENTS HAVE ALREADY LEARNED BOTH HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL
MOTION. THEY WILL NOW PUT THESE TWO CONCEPTS TOGETHER, USING THE VECTOR
ADDITION THEY HAVE LEARNED AND BE ABLE TO SOLVE FOR TWO DIMENSIONAL KINEMATICS.
THIS LESSON IS FOR HORIZONTALLY LAUNCHED PRJECTILES, AN INTRODUCTION INTO THE
TOIPIC, THEN WILL BRIDGE INTO PROJECTILES LAUNCHED AT ANGLE. DEMONSTRATIONS ARE
USED TO HELP STUDENTS VISUALIZE CONCEPTS THAT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO GRASP, SUCH AS A
HORIZONTAL LAUNCED BULLET HITTING THE GROUND AT THE SAME TIME AS A BULLET
DROPPED FROM THE SAME HEIGHT. GUIDED NOTES WILL HELP STUDENT TO STAY ENGAGED IN
THE LECTURE WHILE KNOWING OBTAINING NOTES ON KEY INFORMATION. STUDENTS WILL BE
ALLOWED TO WORK COLLABORATIVELY TO IMPROVE SOCIAL SKILLS AND COLLABORATION
SKILLS IN COMLETING THE ASSIGNED PROBLEMS.
