Opener: As students enter the room, they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener – Instructional Strategy - Process for openers. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is mathematical practice 3.
Learning Target: After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended target is, “I can apply area and circumference formulas to solve problems involving composite figures and real world applications.” At this time, I will regroup the students based on results and conversations during the clicker activity in the previous lesson.
During this portion of the lesson, three different activities will be going on.
Clean Up/Wrap Up: At the end of the block, I will ask that students clean up any materials used during the lesson, by placing them back in their baskets on their table. To summarize the lesson, I will remind students that the following class we will take a test, and that they can still receive additional tutoring during silent reading time.
