Lesson Planning Quick Write
Given that students require multiple forms of learning to help their brains grow, I create an environment where students can be mentally stimulated in multiple ways. This can be done through the use of music for transitions or during work time, stretch breaks, physical actions to remember vocabulary, picture reflection journals, etc. The purpose is to allow students various avenues of learning for their growth. Adolescents also require more specific direction and purpose and therefore when working through assignments and lessons, it will be important to work to develop students sense of perspective while creating tasks that are not based on deep understandings of perspective. Students are engaged in learning while they are working on assignments and focused by allowing students to make decisions regarding their own learning. Students will have their own personalities, needs and learning skills reflected in the activities. This then means that lessons require an understanding of students before details are established within the lessons.
