Lesson plan: 
1. To introduce the lesson, I will ask the 
students guided questions to introduce the 
lesson and to retrieve any prior knowledge 
that they may have on the topic: What are 
direct object pronouns? (5) 
2. Students will change 3 sentences by rewriting 
them, using the direct object pronouns. (5) 
3. I will give notes on how to use the direct 
object pronouns by using interactive 
notebook graphic organizers to help guide 
note taking. (15) 
4. Students will change the same 3 sentences by 
rewriting them, using the direct object 
pronoun.. (5) 
5. I will show a video clip to reemphasize what I 
have just taught through video/song form.(5) 
6. Students will change the same 3 sentences by 
rewriting them, using the direct object 
pronouns. (5) 
7. We will correct the sentences to see the 
growth that they have made from their prior 
knowledge to after hearing the material 
taught twice. (5)  
8. Before they leave, I will let the students 
know what their homework is. The homework

as the lesson progresses. 
How will results inform instruction? ● Note-taking organizers: By using the graphic 
organizers, students can pay attention to the 
lecture instead of focusing on just writing 
information down. Student notes will be 
better organized. 
● Sentence writing: Students will practice 
changing sentences, rewriting them by using 
the object pronouns. 
● Videos to reinforce lesson: The lesson will be 
reinforced by the students seeing it be 
retaught through a video. The video will use 
a song to remember the pronouns and how to 
use them. 
Monitoring Strategies: 
● By having the students write their answers on 
the board, I will be checking for their 
conjugating/spelling. Others students will be 
able to say the right answer if it is incorrect. 
● After the each activity done in class, 
students are to share their answers aloud, 
allowing me to give immediate 
● Progression samples (exit ticket): By 
comparing the results of the exit ticket with 
the previous ones at the beginning and

● After the student shares their answer aloud, I 

will give a compliment if possible along with 
any correct necessary. 
● I have a random name selector that I use to 
select students to participate. Students know 
that their name can be called multiple times, 
even consecutively. Since I use the app, 
students do not feel that I “pick” on them or 
ignore them. By the end of the class period, 
everyone has participated at least once.

To close my lesson, I will: 

● Students will change the 6 sentences by 
rewriting them, using the direct object 
pronouns in 3 sentences and the indirect 
object pronouns in the other 3 sentences.

Other Comments/Notes

I had to change my 90 minute lesson plan to a 45 minute lesson due to schedule conflicts. I was only able to teach
the first half of the lesson (Direct Object Pronouns). With the time constraint, the students were not able to do in
class practice, instead I had to assign it for homework along with creating their own sentences to demonstrate
content knowledge. After reviewing their homework the next class, they did very well with the new concept. I think
I liked having the two concepts split up on different days. Since we came back from vacation, students did not have
homework to correct before beginning the lesson.
All parts of this form should be transcribed (typed; not hand-written) into a single document and submitted to course instructor.
Information from this POP Cycle should be summarized on the NT ILP as appropriate.
