Step 1: Identify Learning Context Description of the learning environment(s) where the learning experience will take
Learners place
Context) ● In this classroom, there is one smart board located at the front of the room
where a majority of the teaching takes place.
● On each side of the smart board, there are large rectangular white boards.
These white boards are used by the teacher to display important
announcements or upcoming events. The teacher also displays the objectives
and essential questions on the white boards for the students to be able to
easily see.
● There is also a smaller white board that the teacher utilizes to solve problems
for the students when teaching a lesson.
● Each student is seated at their own personal desk. These desk are in rows of 5
with 5 desk in each of the rows. Each desk has a personal cubby where the
students can keep their belongings without having to get up and disturb the
class. The desk are arranged in this way, so the teacher can easily walk by to
each one and assist the students when needed.
● There are a few “special” areas located in this room. There is a rectangular
carpet located at the front of the room where the students are instructed to
sit during the whole group lesson.
● Along the walls of the classroom, there are several bookshelves that contain
many books that are considered favorites by the students.
● This classroom also has a couple of technology tools.These technology tools
consist of 8 laptops and 6 iPads. The technology tools are only used by
students to access their learning websites allowed by the teacher. The
learning websites may consist of helping the students with their math,
writing, or reading skills.

English learners 2 There are two students in the classroom
who are English language learners. For
support these students are placed next
to students who share the native
language in order to help them when
they are confused about the language.
These students also go to the ESOL
program a couple times a week for more
in depth help.

the community that the students visit often.

Step 2: Identify Georgia Standard (s) of CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.5.3-Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or
Curricular Excellence, WIDA Standard(s), events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters
Priorities etc. interact).

Prior Academic Knowledge The prior academic knowledge that this lesson will activate is what it means to compare
and Prerequisite Skills and contrast two different items.
The prior academic knowledge that the students will need for this lesson is knowing
how to pick out two important characters from a story and being able to write things
they have in common and their differences.
Central Focus, Overarching The important understandings/core concepts the students are expected to develop
Goal, Big Idea, or Essential from this lesson include selecting important characters, being able to compare and
Question(s) contrast the selected characters, describe the setting of the scene chosen and they
should also be able to draw on specific details from the story.
Learning Objective(s) or ● I can pick out two important characters from the story.
Learning Target(s) ● I can compare and contrast the two characters and include the important
details about each one.
● I can draw upon specific details from the story.
Potential Misconceptions ● Possible misconception or developmental approximation: Student only
and/or Developmental finding similarities about the two characters.
If the student does not understand what is means to compare and contrast, I will have
the student pick a book of choice and I will model how to compare/contrast
two characters from that book.

Pre-Assessment Data Summary
The students were very engaged in this activity and all seemed to have a clear understanding of the topic. It will drive
the instructional practices, because this will be an introduction to the activity they will be completing in class and will
allow me to see who needs further explanation before beginning.

Step 4: Create Materials Needed Teacher Resources (must include podcasts):

Learning ● The book “Number the Stars”
Activities ● Venn Diagram
● Mini Powerpoint on Compare and Contrast

Student Resources:
● The book “Number the Stars”
● Venn Diagram
● Scrap paper for note taking
● Pencil
Technology Connection The teacher will use a mini powerpoint in order to incorporate technology into this
lesson. The mini Powerpoint will be used to explain what comparing and contrasting is
and also give them a short text example with a venn diagram.
The students will have the opportunity to help the teacher fill in the venn diagram
based on the short text from earlier in the Powerpoint. Students will be selected to
come up to the Smartboard and write in the venn diagram.

Supporting Diverse Learners ● I will support my students with 504 plans who struggle with this activity, by
providing pictures if needed, modifying their worksheet, and allowing them
to sit and work next to me in order for their task to be completed.
● I will support my English learners by allowing them to complete the task in
their native language and also allow them to sit next to someone who speaks
English and their language, so they can assist in areas that are needed.

Culturally Responsive The content of this lesson is related to the assets of the students, because when they
Teaching are allowed to share their venn diagram with a partner, they will be able to speak in
the language they are most comfortable with. This will mean, they are partnered with
someone who can understand their language.

Practice objectives, the teacher will bring the students into a small group setting and re-teach
the lesson but instead of using that book the teacher will use a short text. The teacher
will read the short text to the students and together as a group they will choose two
characters and engage in a discussion. The students will find characters, name the
setting, and draw on specific details.
Extensions For the students who have mastered this lesson plan, the teacher can have the
students choose one of their favorite books and compare and contrast two characters
from that book. The students will be able to use the venn diagram or come up with
their own graphic organizer to compare and contrast.

Lesson Closure For the lesson closure, we will do a pair and share with the students. They will be able
to pick a partner of their choice and share the information from their venn diagram.
They will be able to summarize what they have learned with each other through this
Step 5: Post-
Instruction Lesson Implementation (Be sure to address both whole class and small group or individual learners)
Reflection ● What went well and why? For this lesson, I believe by having the students be able to pick their characters
worked well. They were able to successfully create a venn diagram on the two characters they were able to
relate with.
● What did not work well and why? While for some students, being able to pick their own characters to compare
and contrast, it did not work as well for the others. Some had a harder time relating two characters together.
● How did the learning environment and materials work together to support student learning? The learning
environment and materials worked well together to support the student learning, because I made sure to have
all materials I needed before beginning the lesson. It was also quiet while the lesson was being taught, which
helped with learning.
● What improvements and changes would you make if you were to teach the lesson again and why? If I were to
re-teach this lesson, I would have a detailed list of each character that the students were able to pick from.
This would allow them not to have to look back in the book to decide which characters to use.
● What did you learn about yourself as a teacher? I learned that I must be patient with students because they
are in the learning process and they are not always going to understand the topics the first time they hear it.

Learning Theories/Research Base

● To what degree did the implementation of your lesson utilize the learning theories that framed your
instructional plan? Provide examples from your experiences teaching the lesson. The implementation of my
lesson utilized the learning theories that framed my instructional plan, because I stuck to my lesson plan and
followed through with everything that I needed to teach for my student to gain a clear understanding of the

Assessment Analysis
● What information about student understanding did you learn from your assessment(s)? How did the student
or student(s) do on the assessment? What patterns of learning do you see? I learned that the students have a
clearer understanding of the topic than before this lesson. They scored well on the assessment and I believe
they have a full understanding of what is means to retell important ideas and events from a reading.
● How will you act upon, and will students be able to act upon, the feedback provided form each assessment
strategy used? ? I will give positive feedback for each assessment that is given. They are still in the learning
phase and I believe that by being negative, will only make them shut down and not want to continue with the
lesson. Students learn from their mistakes, so it is important to only be encouraging
● Optional: Use the assessments and create a chart to analyze student learning across the class. Attach or paste
your chart and write a quick summary of what students learned or potential misunderstandings and how you
are drawing these conclusions.
