Candidate: Ms. April Smith
Lesson Topic: Math (numbers and operations)
Date Taught: July 14, 2015
What went well: I have 8 students (6 working independently) and a para-professional to work with my 2 students who are struggling in math calculations and place value using steps. I have experience in working with specialized instruction which helped bring in strategies to show the students how to find the problem, use steps to solve and identify an appropriate answer.
What did not go as planned: Because our summer learning place is limited to 3 hours with a 15 minute break, I was not able to complete the entire lesson due to time.
How to change for subsequent lessons: In the future I would probably skip around more instead of going in order which would allow the class to address all parts of the lesson using place value up to hundred thousand.
