Part One: Lesson Plan
Select academic standards on which a unit of study can be developed.

Be sure to address each of the items below in each of your lesson plans:
§ Identify the instructional model you have chosen.
§ State the academic standard on which the lesson is based.
§ Describe grade level your lesson is written for.
§ Write one ‘students will understand’ objective, at least two ‘students will know’ objectives, and at least two ‘students will be able to do’ objectives to meet the academic standard you have chosen.
§ Include assessments that will be utilized.
§ Explain the procedures you will use to teach the lesson. Your lesson plans should be written using the KUD format as shown in your course textbook. See examples in Chapters 4-10.
