Reflection: Standards Alignment Discussing the Topic of Equality - Section 3: Discussion

 

At first glance, this lesson may seem well aligned to SL1; it features preparation for discussion and a discussion in which all students are expected to participate. However, alignment to me is more than just completing an activity. Alignment means I ask my class to focus on the skill for the skill's sake, intentionally asking them to practice and improve. I didn't do that today; instead, I asked students to focus on the content. The end result for me? A lesson which utilizes but does not necessarily feature a standard. There is a difference.
