As a teacher, your ability to identify quality ideas in lesson plans is a very valuable skill. In class we talked about various services offered by UEN. This assignment will help you explore a little deeper at uen.org, looking at the teacher contributed lesson plans associate with the State Core Curriculum. Look deep for quality ideas, not just fluff lessons.

For this assignment,

  1. Choose a specific grade level.
  2. Choose a specific subject area.
  3. Spend some * significant time online browsing uen.org lesson plans associated with your chosen grade level and subject area .
  4. Create a lesson plan that
    • Effectively meets one or more Utah curriculum objectives for your chosen grade level and subject area.
    • Effectively applies technology to improve teaching/learning --.Does not teach ‘technology.’
    • models after one or more lessons you've found on UEN.org or another web site.
  5. Remember that is assignment is 20% of your overall grade, so be creative and do you best work.
  6. This assignment is due by Monday, September 29 , 2008.
  7. In your blog this week, publish a new post including your reflections plus the followings:
    • List the grade level you chose.
    • List the subject area you chose.
    • List the title of the lesson plan you chose.
    • Provide links (http://) to the lesson plans you used or from which you borrowed ideas.

* means more than “a really quick look just long enough to get the assignment done”

Important! Remember to avoid lessons that

  • ‘Teach’ technology just for the sake of technology
  • Use technology when something else would be significantly more effective.
  • Use technology only because ‘it makes it fun.’
