Student Notes/Guided Notes

Students with reading disabilities will be able to have the Prezi air-dropped to their iPads so they
can save it and take it home to study with it.
Introduction/ Lesson
Being with asking the students what they know about the French and Indian War
Body & Transitions
I will use a Prezi to explain the section to the students. I will have them up away their iPads and
use the guided notes sheet I made them to take their notes on.
Closure Review
Summarize the section and turn in their notes to be graded. Will be handed back during the next
Diagnostic: Will ask students what they know about the French and Indian War before I start the
lesson. They will raise hands and give me answers.
Formative: We will discuss the section as a class as I am going over it.
Summative: We will summarize what the students learned during the class and they will turn in
their notes so I know that they copied them down correctly and understood what needed to be
written down.

If Student Finishes Early: They will do the section work Mr. Johnson sent them to work on.
If Lesson Finishes Early: They will do the section work Mr. Johnson sent them to work on.
If Technology Fails: Give students notes from my notes I have written down. Write the
important facts on the board for them to copy.
Today I taught 4th and 5th periods and this is the first time I have taught these classes. These two
classes are quite different from each other. 4th period is the good/high achieving class and 5th
period is the average/normal class. It is interesting to see how the different classes learn
differently. 4th period was great. They put their iPads away when I asked and they took really
good notes on their notes sheet. They did not interrupt class talking and they raised their hands if
they had a question. The only real problem I had was the classroom teacher interrupting me. He
would interrupt to talk about something that would be on my next page of my Prezi. He did
apologies for interrupting after I was finished teaching. 5th period was pretty good. They put their
iPads away when I asked and there was only one time I had to ask a student to put it away
because they got it back out. I had to slow down my teaching for them. It took them longer to

write down the notes but I was ok with that. The classroom teacher did not interrupt as much in
this class period.
Overall- I think this lesson went very well. The students listened to me when I told them no iPads
and they took very good notes. My classroom teacher told me that this was the best lesson I had
taught and he felt the lesson went really well. That made me feel good about the lesson and made
me feel like I was doing a good job teaching the students the information they needed to know.
Data Based Decision Making
For my data based decision making for this lesson, I took their notes and looked at: if they had
the right information down and if they actually took notes at all. From what I saw, the students
took very good notes and they had the correct information written down in the correct sections. I
think the students really understood what I was teaching them and I could tell with the details in
their notes.
