How will I vary these objectives for students who are presently learning English? For students who are having difficulty grasping this concept, I will provide them extra one on one assistance while the class is completing their guided practice before retesting them. For students who have mastered this concept, I will provide them with more advanced examples and have some students work with others to provide assistance. For students who are learning English, I will work with the ELL teacher and provide those students extra time to learn the concepts during their time with the ELL teacher. In addition, I will allow those students to use computer enrichment tools for extra assistance.

How will I find out what students already know about this topic? Before starting the lesson I will introduce what we will be learning and show the students example of Standard American English mistakes and misuse of capitalization and have the students come up to the board and tell me what is wrong in the examples. What will I do to make a connection between students and this lesson? I will take a clip out of a popular childrens book and have mistakes in it for the students to correct. The students will raise their hands to tell me the mistakes and after all corrections are made students will receive stickers. What will I say to explain the importance of learning this lesson? Using Standard English Grammar correctly not only allows you to display your thoughts, but it also shows that you are competent in writing.

What worked for you during the lesson? What did not work? What changes would you make when you teach this lesson again to make it more effective? During my lesson I believed that the hook was very effective. It captured the students attention and made them interested in the lesson. I think that my guided activities could have been more effective and could have been made more personal towards the students. When I teach this lesson again I plan to differentiate my guided activity to make the class conduct small group work and then come together as an entire class and demonstrate what they have learned. This way I will be able to tell if they have truly grasped the concept that was taught.




Read the paragraphs below. Make corrections to all mistakes including capitalization and spelling errors.
