Essential Questions

The questions we ask set parameters for learning and can open and close possibilities for learning. Wiggins & McTighe have a great article, What Makes a Question Essential? that discusses what does and doesn’t qualify and the specific considerations to be made in order to form good essential questions for lessons and units. Check it out!

Microteaching + Lesson Planing

The first round of Spring microteaching calls for you to submit either a written or electronic lesson plan (via email) before you teach. The lesson plan doesn’t need to follow a specific predetermined format, but it must include:

1. A RATIONALE
2. PRACTICAL GOALS/OUTCOMES
3. MATERIALS REQUIRED
4. CONTENT STANDARDS MET
5. SPECIFIC PROCEDURES
6. ASSESSMENT

Again, feel free to utilize this Common Teaching Strategies document to give you ideas.

AND, here is your 408 Microteaching Rubric: note what will be expected of your content knowledge, skills, and professionalism and plan accordingly!

*Note that your plan must include at least 1 explicit state or national standard that you are meeting: Michigan Social Studies Content Expectations — National Standards for Social Studies Teachers.
