Standard #7: Planning for Instruction

The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by
drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy,
as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.

Native Americans Lesson Plan

I picked this artifact for this standard because it shows that I can draw “upon knowledge

of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills,” to make a cross-disciplinary lesson. This

artifact is both a social studies and a language arts lesson plan. It is a social studies lesson because

it is about Native Americans. It is also a language arts lesson because I have students write, talk, and

listen during the lesson.

This artifact is a 5th grade lesson I had to make for my multicultural education class. It

includes reading the book Encounter by Jane Yolen aloud. Then I have the students writ in a

notebook, one paragraph responding to the book, and I have them compare what they knew

about American Indians to what they learned. I also have the student do two worksheets I

personally created. One of the worksheets I made is a vocabulary lesson of words that Native

American language gave to the American language, and the other is a writing activity to gauge

how and what the students learned during the lesson. At the end of the lesson we talk as a whole

class about what the students learned. I include in the lesson plan the standards I cover, the

objectives, resources needed, directions to do the assignment, and how I would grade the

assignment.

A future goal is to write more lesson plans that show my ability to meet “rigorous

learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills,

and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.” I will do this by

going to the IDOE website and getting the standards and writing lessons for the standards and

making sure that I include more than one discipline. Another goal is to learn more about how to
teach in the different content areas by interviewing my teachers who have experience in teaching

in elementary classrooms, how they taught the standards in their classrooms.
