Week 6 - Final Paper
SDAIE Lesson Plan
Using the Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) Lesson Plan Template, you will create a lesson plan that will meet the diverse needs of English language learners (ELLs) utilizing the knowledge you have learned throughout the course. Within this lesson plan, you will need to effectively address all four areas of language acquisition: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The lesson plan must include the following elements:
- Introduction: Describe the lesson information including:
- Grade Level.
- Learning objectives for each area of language acquisition (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). Be sure that the objectives are appropriate and written in clearly measurable terms (consult “A Model of Learning Objectives” for Bloom’s Taxonomy). Also be sure that they support the standards you discuss in the next section.
- Standards: Discuss the Common Core State Standard(s) (or your state’s standards) and English language development standard(s) for each level of learner (beginning, early intermediate, intermediate, early advanced, and advanced). Be sure that the content standards you choose are appropriate for the grade level and lesson.
- Materials: Create three teacher-made materials, student handouts, and/or other supplemental materials that are well-organized, clearly written, complete, and appealing to students (include these with the lesson plan).
- Lesson: Create a detailed lesson following the SDAIE Lesson Plan Template. Your lesson plan will include the following:
- Anticipatory Set (Warm Up).
- Guided Practice.
- Independent Practice.
- Be sure that your lesson includes activities and instruction which do the following:
- Activates and transfers prior knowledge and build upon background knowledge of learners, including essential vocabulary and meaningful, personal connections.
- Scaffolds and frontload skills, knowledge, and learning.
- Addresses a variety of learning modalities and multiple intelligences, one of which must be auditory (this includes incorporating music, videos, or visiting a performing arts performance to name a few).
- Includes at least one educational technology device that incorporates audio (i.e.: music, videos, interviews, etc.) as part of the lesson or a homework assignment.
- Presents clear and specific plans for actively engaging students in explaining, summarizing, or reviewing the learning experience, major concepts, and key vocabulary.
- Clearly indicates how students will apply the skill, strategy, or tasks learned in the lesson (independently, in groups, etc.).
- Differentiates to meet the needs of all learners.
- Contains measureable assessment activities (formal and informal) designed for each learning objective including a summative project-based activity.
- Reflection: Reflect on your lesson plan by assessing the effectiveness of your instructional strategies and how you encouraged student motivation. The reflection will be no more than one page in length.
While creating your lesson plan, think about motivation and the role it plays in helping linguistically diverse students to achieve success. Include strategies for your lesson that encourage student motivation. The lesson plan will be five to six pages in length (in addition to the title and reference pages) using APA format. Be sure to use at least three scholar resources in addition to the text.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
