Workshop Rotation Lesson Plan and Blended Learning in Mathematics
These documents are related to workshops and blended learning for differentiated instruction. The lesson plan here provides a simple example of a way to do workshops in a block period with one or even multiple teachers in the room.
Small Lesson Plan 3/8/17
Standards- F.BF.2 “Write arithmetic and geometric sequences both recursively and with an
explicit formula, use them to model situations, and translate between the
Goal- Students will be able to create an explicit rule in function notation for a geometric sequence and find any given term in the sequence using that rule with 75% accuracy.
Lesson: Flexible Groups Workshop/Blended Learning- All groups based on assessments and classroom observation
Group A- Homogeneous group with lowest level students who will need more time with teacher during the lesson
Group B and C- Both groups are heterogeneous with students from highest level to those below proficient so that the higher ability students can help their peers.
3 Rotations (23-25 minutes each)
Computers- USA TEST PREP- students work on review content in preparation for the OST
Teacher Lesson- Geometric Sequences
Independent Practice- Geometric Sequences
Computers Teacher Lesson (Small) Independent Practice (Toney)
A B&C NONE
B A C
C NONE B&A
Group A will receive their independent practice with the teacher since they will need more time in the teacher lesson to get through the content. So their independent practice is still with small group instruction.
- Teacher will track results from USA TEST PREP review.
- Monitor student understanding of geometric sequences in during small group instruction
- Practice will be collected and graded for feedback Tuesday.
- HW on Geometric Sequences due Wed
- Quiz on Geometric Sequences and Exponential Growth and Decay on Thursday.
