Vinson 1Lesson Plan Sequence: NarrativeJordan Vinson00:340 Developmental Writing and Digital Literacies in Inclusive EarlyDr. Gloria Argenti HoborOctober 1,2021
Vinson 2I had the opportunity to conduct my own standards investigation. That investigationallowed me to dive deep into the standards and better understand them. Some of the standards Ilooked at were the ones about narrative writing. In this assignment I created a 5 day lesson plan.The lesson plan I created had each day build off of the previous one. I named the lesson, “To thefuture” and it is to be used at a 1st grade level. The topic of Instruction is friendly letter writing.Each day's lesson will be about 25-40 minutes. My selected theme is gaining new writing skills.The content area I am embedding this lesson is reading.Part 1: DescriptionPart 1 is all about the before when it comes to my lesson. This part has all of mypreparations, and thought process before I actually created my lesson. This includes thestandards I wanted to base my lesson on, the grouping during my lesson, the behaviors I expectfrom my students, and the student profile of my class. This section also includes mymodifications, and the prior knowledge the students should have.Ohio Learning StandardsThe standards that I found that I wanted to base my lesson on are:”W.1.5 With guidance andsupport from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and adddetails to strengthen writing as needed”, “W.1.3 Write narratives to recount two or moreappropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporalwords to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure”,and “RL.1.2 Analyze literarytext development. a. Demonstrate understanding of the lesson. b. Retell stories, including keydetails” (ODE standards).Big Ideas/GroupingThis lesson planning activity allowed me to further try to understand what I would expect frommyself as a teacher. I was able to think of some main reasons for teaching certain lessons becausethere is no point in having a lesson for students that doesn’t have reasoning behind it. The bigideas for this lesson are to have my students continue building their writing skills as a whole andto acquire a new skill of friendly letter writing. The grouping for my lessons are mainly inpartners and individuals with a few exceptions.Expectations and Behavior GoalsWhile creating the lesson plan I was thinking about some behaviors and expectations I wouldhave for my students and I came up with the idea that I want the students to be able toidentifythe components of letter writing. They should be able to interpret the theme and main idea of thebook. They will practice rewriting during their peer edit process and learn how to develop theirown personal letters. I want them to make connections to the story as well.
