T&L Instructional Plan Template

(Updated 4/28/15)
(edTPA Aligned)

Overview
The information included in this document is to support faculty in teaching about and supporting students with
the T&L (and edTPA) Instructional Plan. While there are many variations of lesson plans, this format meets
departmental requirements and is aligned with the 2014 edTPA as well.

Background Information
Teacher Candidate: __Brieanna Olsen___________ Date:_April 18, 2017_____________
Cooperating Teacher: __Sarah Davis____________ Grade:_First______________
School District: Pullman School District _________ School: __Franklin Elementary School________
University Supervisor: Lori White
Unit/Subject: Literacy/Writing Conclusions
Instructional Plan Title/Focus: Drawing Conclusions

Section 1: Planning for Instruction and Assessment

a. Instructional Plan Purpose:


The purpose of this lesson is to build students knowledge on the comprehension strategy of drawing
conclusions. By drawing conclusions, the students will be able to pick out key details within the story to
make predictions of what may happen at the end of a story. Students will be working collaboratively in
small groups to wrap up a story by giving it a final concluding sentence. Drawing conclusions is
important because it allows students to move beyond simple decoding and pure accumulation of the
facts within a passage. Students will use the sum of what they already know to make judgments about
the event that will occur in the end. The students have previously been working on using their prior
knowledge and including it into their writing.

f. Assessment Strategies

Content/Language Objectives Assessment Strategies


SWBAT define the word conclusion. Summative: At the end of the lesson, I will ask them to
use their thumbs to answer the final question to recap
what they had just learned. Thumbs up says, I can
identify a conclusion. Thumbs to the side mean, I have
some understanding, but not fully. Thumbs down tells
me, I do not understand, can you please help me. Then,
I will ask the students the question, What is a
conclusion? I will pick on a few students to share aloud
what they believe a conclusion is from what we just
learned.

SWBAT work collaboratively in small Formative: As the students are working on their
groups to make predictions about what is worksheets, I will be walking around to check off how
going to happen at the end of a short story. well they are working in their small groups. I will
consider the following questions:
Is this student working collaboratively?
Is this student sharing his/her ideas?
Is this student copying his/her partners worksheet, or
completing the work as well?
Refer to (Figure 3) below.

SWBAT create their own conclusion at the Formative: I will be walking around the room to see if

their own conclusions from different stories. I will also
be able to determine this after I check over all of their
worksheets and see their responses.

SWBAT write in complete sentences as they Formative: This will be documented by their completed

are all completed by each student in the class.

I will also determine this by

the end of the lesson.

during this process.

h. Grouping of Students for Instruction:


Whole Group: The whole class will be together at their desks in front of the teacher as she teaches the
comprehension strategy of drawing conclusions from text. They will also be together for group
discussion portion as well as the time for sharing thoughts and pieces of prior knowledge.
Small Groups: Students will be in their groups according to their reading level. They will be able to
share ideas with on another and talk about the overall topic. They are placed in these groups for walk-to
reading, so they will stay in these groups for this assignment as well. They all work very well together
and their confidence levels are higher as they participate with peers of the same reading status.

Section 2: Instruction and Engaging Students in Learning

a. Introduction: I will begin the lesson by reviewing what the class and I briefly talked about last week on
what the word conclusion means. I will have multiple students tell me what they remember to the class. I
will then go into explaining to the students what a conclusion is and where it fits into a story. I will then
tell them my own story that I made up, then ask them to tell me what my conclusion was by listening to
the key details that sums it all up. I will then ask a few students to share a story with me and the rest of
the class to see if we can identify what that students conclusion of his or her story was as well. I will
then hand out one worksheet and explain the directions to them at the top. Students will be able to
collaborate in their small groups as they begin drawing conclusions for a series of different short stories.

b. Questions:
Do you know what the work conclusion means? (Analyzing/remembering)
Do you think you can predict a conclusion by looking at this picture on the worksheet? (Applying)
Where will you find a conclusion in the text? (Analyzing/applying)
Why do we need a conclusion at the end of a story? (Evaluating)
Can you tell me a story then wrap it up with a final thought (conclusion)? (Applying)

anyone remember what we talked about last

students to raise their hand and I will call on

something we use to wrap up a story, like our
very last thought. It is the last thing someone
reads while reading a story. I am going to tell
you a quick story, and I am going to tell you
what the conclusion of my story is. My best
friend Ashley and I met up on Monday to
spend the day together. First Ashley wanted to
go to the beach. Then, I wanted to go to the
ice cream shop and share an ice cream
sandwich. Finally, Ashley and I returned back
to her house and her mom made us dinner.
I had the best day ever with my best friend,
Ashley! My conclusion in this story is that I
had the best time with Ashley on Monday
when I was spending time with her! Can
someone tell me why that might be my
conclusion? Great! Yes, it is my conclusion
because it is at the end of my story and it
wraps up my entire story too! Now its your
turn. I will tell you a story and I want your
help to tell me what my conclusion is. Lets
try!

got to take the kitten home with me! Then I
thought that my kitten needed a name, so I call
her Cookie. Cookie and I do everything
together. We eat meals together, play outside
together, and even read books together.
Cookie is my new best friend! Alright, can
someone tell me what my conclusion would

Now it is your turn to try this strategy. I will

would be. Then they will be able to share their
conclusions with the rest of the class before it
is time for lunch. The students will then do a
student checklist to ensure that they learned
everything that they need to learn for the
lesson.

b. Closure:
Everyone did so awesome today, I am so impressed! I really enjoyed hearing the conclusions that you
were all coming up with. Now before we turn in our worksheets and go to lunch, can anyone tell me
what a conclusion is, I think I forgot? Awesome! Does anyone know where conclusions fit in to your
stories? Good job! Yes, conclusions sum up the ending of our stories, so they are the last thing the
reader sees in a story. Today we also learned that it is okay to have different conclusions, even if we
have the same story. I saw some great examples of that as I was reading some of your conclusions.
Some people said that Kate like animals, others said pets, and some people even said she likes hamsters!
All of those are great conclusions to sum up Kates story. Dont forget to continue drawing conclusions
are you read stories it is an important skill that you will need to know forever!

Once all students are finished and have turned in their worksheets for this lesson, the teacher will
evaluate them for progress on this topic. If the students still do not seem to fully understand the concepts
and have not yet successfully applied the learning targets, the strategy may need to be revisited
immediately.

c. Independent Practice:
Students will be encouraged to draw their own conclusions as they are reading books to practice the
strategy of drawing conclusions. They should make their own conclusions and predict what may happen
because it is a great skill to have as they are writing their own stories and making their own conclusions.
Even if their conclusions are not correct, they are still practicing this important skill.
