*Math 406B – Methods in **Teaching** **Secondary
School** Mathematics*

**Lesson Development Assignments**

An Algebra I lesson and a Geometry/Middle School lesson – 80 points each

Algebra lesson is due the week of **October 24**

Geometry/Middle School lesson is due the week of **November 14**

The purpose of these assignments
is for you to develop two lessons, each using a different mode of instruction. One lesson should be designed for an **Algebra I** class and the other for a **Geometry** class. If you anticipate someday wanting to teach at
the middle school level, you may substitute the Geometry lesson with a lesson
appropriate for 7^{th} or 8^{th} grade.

For each lesson you are going to
select a section from a textbook for the course and then develop your lesson
from the topic in the section. One
lesson must be a __guided discovery__ lesson. The other must be a __combination of lecture
and small group work__. (Your guided
discovery lesson may also include group work.)
You can decide which lesson you’ll use for which class/course. *At
least* one or your lessons must make use of

Ø Manipulatives – hands-on materials

or

Ø Technology – computers or calculators

Your plan for each lesson __must__
include:

· Course/Grade level (1 pt)

· Topic/Content of lesson (1 pt)

· Standard(s) and Performance Objective(s) for the lesson (4 pts)

· Do-Now/Fast Five/Etc. exercises or motivational activity (8 pts)

· Instructional Procedure (50 pts)

· Check for Understanding (5 pts)

· Summary/Closure (5 pts)

· Assignment (4 pts)

· Resources and Materials (2 pt)

Included in each lesson should be
the __anticipated time__ needed for each part. You may assume a class period is
approximately 50 – 55 minutes long (unless you want to prepare a lesson for a
block-schedule day, in which it can be 90 minutes). If the topic/content of the section in the
text cannot be adequately taught in one day, you may make your “lesson plan”
for more than one day.

With each lesson, include a copy
of the __textbook pages__ the lesson is covering and the assignment page if
problems and/or exercises are taken from the text.
