Special Needs (can be a

group such as struggling
readers or individuals)

If Spanish is the native

language of any of my
students, Julie will be able to
speak and translate for them.
For any group work the ELL
students will be paired with a
buddy which will allow them
to receive help from fellow
classmates and these smaller
groups will allow for Katie and
Julie to give personalized and
individualized help if needed.

Children with any reading

disorder, such as dyslexia will
benefit from Katie and Julie
reading the instructions aloud.
Besides verbal direction,
students will have written
directions with visuals if they
have a hearing impairment.
Any student with
ADHD/ADD will benefit from
the ability to move around
during the activity and use
their squishy ball is they need

Analyzing Teaching: To be completed after the lesson has been taught
What worked?
What didnt? For whom?

The packet seemed to work very well due to the

fact that it required students to develop their
own examples. There did not seem to be any
issues with any of the technology (Prezi and
Kahoot) that was used throughout the lesson.

What instructional changes do you need
to make as you prepare for your next

Some students felt that there was too much

content covered within the 50-minute class
period, which may be something to consider

Proposed Changes

Whole class: N/A. I like the format of the class,

If you could teach this lesson again to this

group of students what changes would
you make to your instruction?

being in clusters. (Due to the small group of

students we taught I dont think I can make any
significant changes.)
Groups of students: I would keep the groups of
students to a limit of five or four, to keep the
group on track and focused on their work. I
might call on specific groups or clusters and ask
for them to volunteer a representative, to ensure
that each group is participating.
Individual students: I would focus on meeting
one on one with each student and observing
their progress.

Why will these changes improve student
What research/theory supports these

I know that guided reading strategies are set up

in a way that the teacher meetings with groups
of students or each student individually to
provide specific instruction and support.
Therefore basing my desired instruction method
off of individualized learning, I would like to be
able to visit with each of my students individually
to assess their status and work progress when
given the opportunity. This is proven to improve
student learning because they are able to
receive specialized one-on-one help from the
teacher where they do not need to feel
embarrassed about asking a question or
admitting their struggles with the material.
