Reflection: Intervention and Extension Following Instructions and Sequencing - Section 1: Lesson


The next time I teach this lesson, I'll take it a step further and use actual sample questions from our State Test. For example, I might do the entire lesson above, only add in the dissection of questions using our K-PREP Sampler, a sample of Kentucky's State Assessment questions.

In the question, students read a passage about Benjamin Franklin, the respond to this prompt:

In “Memoir—Benjamin Franklin,” Franklin briefly tells about seeing a young
woman after arriving in Philadelphia. “The Life of Benjamin Franklin” tells
about the couple’s first meeting in a different way. Explain one way the two
presentations are different. Use details from both passages in your explanation.

Here, I would want my students to understand they have to completely describe both presentations. Use details from both and identify one way they are different.

Following Instructions and Sequencing

Unit 12: Informational Intervention Unit
Lesson 8 of 9

Objective: SWBAT: write directions in sequential order, and dissect instructions.

Big Idea: Is it they don't understand the concepts, or they don't read the directions? This is a great lesson to prepare students for State Testing.
