Part of what health teachers do in practice is modify and expand the scope of their teaching and learning as they gain more experience in the classroom. You did some of this already by modifying your brainstorm ideas, and incorporating new information to problem-solve and create learning activities in DB 3 & 4. For this assignment I want you to dig deeper into the work you did for the DBs and expand your ideas even further in this IPW assignment.
To successfully teach the health topics covered in this module, it is often beneficial to include and engage parents in the learning process. The focus of this LA2 assignment is for you to choose one of the topics you worked on in either DB 3 or 4 and build your ideas out into a full IPW. In addition to the in-class activities and assessments, you will be adding an addendum for how you plan to involve parents in this process.
1. Instruction Plan Worksheet: At the end of chapters 7, & 8 you will find an Instruction Plan Worksheet (IPW). The purpose of this form is to aid the novice teacher in planning for, organizing, and assessing learning outcomes. You will be completing a shortened version of an IPW for this Learning Activity. To help you get started, a copy of this form is attached (LessonPlan_Page). You are to complete this plan for 1 learning outcome, with an associated in-class activity, take-home activity, an assessment.
You may wish to review chapter 2 for specific information on what you need to consider and how to fill out the IPW.
2. Reflective Paper: This is the “meta-cognitive” portion of your learning activity. In this paper, I want you to talk about your creative process for coming up with the activities, objectives and assessments for your IPW. In this paper you will also talk about how you used resources from the class, your text, your interview — anything you have done to date. You may also talk about what you found through your own research and how you used this information to build your IPW. Here are some areas to include in your paper:
