Who are the People in Your Neighborhood in Your Neighborhood? Social Studies Lesson Plan
I think the most challenging part will be having the students act out their scripts because some students are very shy whereas, others love to perform. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? I will follow up this lesson by having the students write a list of rules for home. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? For students who dont grasp the concepts I can have students work with the teacher and a small group and practice some more little skits. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I might want to have to change my groupings to make sure some students are getting help from their peers. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part of the lesson was limiting the amount of rules the students would want to write. It is important to have a few great rules instead of a bunch of little rules that do not relate to the area they are writing rules for.
