Rationale Statement
Statement of Standard 7: Planning for Instruction
The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning
goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills,
and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.. (NJPTSB,
2014, pp. 30)
Name of Artifact: Ted Ed Lesson
Date of Artifact: Fall 2014
Course: Education Field Experience EDUC 230-01
Rationale Statement:
Our assignment was to create a lesson plan for high school students using
ed.ted.coms lesson creator. Furthermore, we were told that we needed to keep in
mind how we could adapt our lessons to accommodate students with disabilities
and create a real-world experience. As a future educator who hopes to some day be
part of the social studies department in a school and be designated to teach
Psychology, I choose to use this opportunity to explore how I would do that. I
choose to use CrashCourses How We Make Memories? YouTube video instead of
creating my own video. Although, I feel if given enough time and access to the right
tools I would be successful in creating my own video. Nevertheless, I choose the
CrashCourse video because it is very colorful, straightforward, and compacts a lot of
information into 10 minutes. The video also uses a lot of simple words, plenty of
examples, and actually projects the important words onto the screen. My lesson
consists of having students watch the video, answer multiple and open-ended
questions, gives them the opportunity for extra credit, and includes instructions for
This lesson already has modifications for students with hearing or seeing
impairments, attention disorders, or who are slow learners. Students with hearing
impairments can choose to use subtitles to watch the video, while students with
seeing impairments can listen to the video and retain the important information and
use a parent to help answer the questionnaire. As previously stated the video is
colorful, straightforward, and 10 minutes so students with attention disorders dont
have to sit long before they can actively participate. Slow learners can choose to rewatch or pause the video as many times as they want before answering the
questions. Furthermore, they can read the questions before watching the video so
they will know what to look out for. Depending on where the discussion leads to
online I could possible seek out a memory expert and have them be a guest speaker
and thus creating a real-world experience.

Ted Ed lesson strongly correlates with standard 7 in several ways. Standard

7.1.1 reads, The teacher individually and collaboratively selects and creates learning
experiences that are appropriate for curriculum goals and content standards, and are
relevant to learners. Before I started my ed.ted lesson I made sure that my topic of
choice was relevant to the American Psychological Associations National Standards for
High School Psychology Curricula. The cognition domain cares a standard for memory
with three different content standards. If I use this lesson as an introduction, as it states,
then this would be following both standards of the Board of New Jersey Professional
Teacher Standards and the American Psychological Association. Another way this
artifact relates to by doing exactly what standard 7.2.4 states The teacher understands
the strengths and needs of individual learners and how to plan instruction that is
responsive to these strengths and needs, by integrating the extra credit project as a way
for students who want to learn more by allowing them to do so and positively responding
to it. Creating a Ted Ed lesson naturally leans itself to adhering to standard 7.3.4,
which states, The teacher believes that plans must always be open to adjustment and
revision based on learner needs and changing circumstances, because the nature of Ted
Ed allows other teachers to use and adapt for their own classes.
In conclusion, I believe this artifact will be a great tool to use in my future. I can
use this Ted Ed lesson to help demonstrate my understanding of the Professional
Standards for Teachers and the possibility to create unique lessons that can reach several
types of students in interviews. Once I am a teacher, I will be able to use this style of
lesson plan to help with lessons that may be difficult to discuss in a class period and
explain more then I could in person. Furthermore, this type of lesson plan will allow me
to focus more on hand-on classroom activities and group discussions.
