What skills do students need in order to be successful with this lesson? - Students will need to be able to understand and listen actively as the teacher discusses what a region is. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? - To follow up this lesson I will have students learn about borders, boundaries, and belts that make up a region. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? - I will work with students who dont grasp the concepts when the students are discussing in small group or partner share. Where do you anticipate having problems with this lesson? I can anticipate that the students might get a little anxious because this is the first day of the unit and they are just getting information.
