Differentiating Literacy Lesson Plan Instructions

Overview

The purpose of this assignment is for you to select ONE lesson plan from your practicum and modify it for a distinct student population: a disability (one of these categories only – dyslexia, reading difficulty, or learning disability) or English language learners. In addition, you will support other educators by creating instruction that supports the literacy development of diverse classroom populations.

There are three steps to the assignment: 1) include instructional and assessment sections from the original lesson plan (using the lesson plan template), 2) revise the instructional and assessment sections of the lesson to differentiate for selected population, and 3) explain how a teacher would differentiate and provide supports for this distinct student population in a written evaluation.

Step 1- Original Lesson Plan

1. From original lesson plan, cut and paste the topic/skill sections, the instructional sections and assessment section.

2. Include all resources, handouts, links teacher will need to include in lesson (everything the teacher or student will see or use).

Step 2- Differentiating Lesson for Specific Population of Student(s)

1. Write a differentiated lesson plan specifically addressing the selected population. The entire lesson is not rewritten, only the instructional sections and assessment section.

1. Include all NEW differentiated resources, handouts, links teacher will need to include in lesson (everything the teacher or student will see or use).

2. Label differentiated resources with the code “DI” (differentiated instruction).

3. It should be clear as to how you are differentiating the lesson. Include details.

Step 3- Written Report (Evaluation of Differentiated Literacy Lesson)

1. Describe the literacy focus for the distinct student population and how differentiation is seen in the lesson.

2. Explain how a teacher would differentiate and provide supports for this distinct student population.

3. Word count is 500-600 words, written in proper paragraph format.

4. Graduate level writing should adhere to current APA guidelines and should be free of grammatical/mechanical errors, including a cover page and reference page.

5. No additional research-based articles are required.
