**Integrated Lesson Plan**

Original Lesson Plan

**Summary: **Graphing Everyday
is designed to represent data that comes from each student. Graphing Everyday can
be placed in any lesson, topic, or discussion once all students understand the
concept.

**Targeted Lesson: **The title of the
lesson I found is Daily Graph. I found this lesson plan off the Utah Education
Network website. The lesson plan that I selected can support many units,
including math, science, social studies, language arts, and health. This
lesson’s role is to collect data from the class, a group in the class, or an individual’s
work. With this lesson I will be able to show data in different and unique ways
to my students.

**Target Audience: **The target
audience for this lesson plan can range from grade 1 to grade 4. This would
work with that grade range of students because this lesson can be used in a
number of ways and at increasingly advanced way. First grade is the youngest
that I would want to start this lesson because students need to have an
understanding of numbers, along with addition and subtraction. On a cognitive
level students need to have a number awareness and be able to see differences
in graphs. Also students need to know how to write, use a computer and come up
with different ways to represent their data and plug their information in. Entry
level for this lesson plan is basic, and if some students have already dealt
with addition and subtraction, they will be able to help their other
classmates. The entry level is basic because in first grade we will begin to
learn about numbers and how to add and subtract them from each other.

**AL Course of Study Objectives:**

Represent and
interpret data.

Mathematics
(2010)

Grade(s):1

18.) Organize,
represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer
questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and
how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1-MD4]

**Learning Environment: **There are a
couple of areas where I would teach my lesson plan. The first would be in
section of the classroom specifically dedicated to “Graphing Everyday.”
Students would become familiar with this area due to the fact it would be in
our daily routine to focus our attention to that area. As students arrive in
the morning and after they unpack are to make their way to the “Graphing Everyday”
bulletin board and answer the question asked.

The next
environment would be in the computer centers. In the corner of the classroom
there will be a computer lab center set up. Here students will complete their
assignments on the computers after being instructed to do so.

**Teaching/Learning Strategies: **The teaching and
learning strategies that would go along with this lesson would be addition and
subtractions skills, being able to read graphs and understand them, and also
using the information from graphs to form discussions. I would first like to
teach this lesson to my students as a group and make sure we are all on the
same level. This will be a daily routine.

After they have
grasped the concept and the questions that I ask I will pair them up into
groups. Then one of them will take on the role of the teacher and the other the
student, and then switch roles. With this lesson I want my students to know
their addition and subtraction facts quick. I know that this may seem simple,
but this is something I wish I had more of when I was a student. I plan on
using graphing everyday in many of my other subjects so that my students can do
math while not knowing.

While doing my
lesson plan on graphing I will use different approaches to teaching my students
about collecting data and interpreting it. I use group work, individual
assessments, projects, and a test at the end of the section to grade my
students understanding. Even after this lesson plan is completed I will still
implement it throughout the school year, with technology tools such as
iClicker. This can be a quick formative assessment of how my students are doing
in a certain subject.

**Support Technologies:**

**Summative Evaluation: **An outside
observer would be able to see that I am teaching to the ALCOS goals by my
multiple assessments, project, and final test. I have many tools and records
that I will be taking from each student to show their progress and
understanding of the AL Course of Study. A short one to five question
assessments will be given before and after discussions. I will also be giving a
take home project that student can show their understand of the concept being
taught. To wrap up the lesson plan their will be a test given to students to
see what they have grasped from this lesson. For those who may be struggling I
will take one-on-one and work out the problems or any confusion they may have.
