Reflection on a Lesson Plan Taught


Virginia Teachers for Tomorrow
Intern Name: Katherine Harriman
Lesson Title (Subecjt/Topc): Social Studies/ World War ll
Date of Lesson Taught: 4/29/19
Cooperating Teacher & School: Jane Julian, Great Neck Middle School
Grade: 7
Time of Day: 10:45 a.m.

1. What steps did you go through to create this lesson? With whom did you talk, discuss, or edit your lesson?
I talked to my coopering teacher about my plan before I executed it. She helped me create the perfect lesson
plan for her class.

2. How did the SOLs and Objectives help focus your instruction?
Although 7th graders do not have to take a civics SOL, I was aware that Mrs. Julian's class had just finished
learning about World War ll, so I based my lesson plan off of that.

3. What parts of the instructional plan worked as you anticipated?


I anticipated that some of the students would get a little bit more heated over the discussion than others. I
suspected that there would be some arguments and that I had to calm some kids down.

4. What, if any, adjustments needed to be made once you began?

I Just need to adjust where the kids sat in small groups because one of the students was one crutches.

5. How well did you anticipate the materials needed?


I anticipated them very well because we didn't need many material due to the fact that we discussed a lot as a
class.

6. How effective was the assessment you chose to use? (If no assessment was used, what will the future
assessment be and how will you gauge its effectiveness?)
It was extremely effective. The children were very engaged and curious throughout the entire discussion. As a
class, they came up with a solution to the problem.

7. To what degree do you feel that this lesson was a success? What evidence do you have for the success of
the lesson? (Hint: Student learning is the key to a lesson’s success!)

I think that this lesson was a huge success. I could tell that many students enjoyed learning about the different
possibles of how the war could have ended.

8. How did the time spent preparing for your lesson contribute to its success?
I spent a lot of time preparing my lesson and preparing what I should say to the students that way I'd feel
comfortable in front of the class and I greatly benefited fro the time I spent on this.

9. If you could do this lesson again with the same students, would you do anything differently? If so, what?
I would prepare more time for the students to share their responses. Unfortunately, we ran out of time and not
every group got a chance to share their responses.

10. Any last comments/reflections about your lesson?


I would do this again in a heartbeat.
