lesson plan and reflective essay for second grade phonemic awareness and phonics

  • Practicum Observations/Teaching Lessons

    • In Topics 2-6, devote attention to each of the four areas of literacy development. For each of these categories, observe a classroom (grades 1-3) as the teacher and students focus on one of the four areas. Keep notes on activities used by the teacher. Suggested practicum schedule for observations and teaching the lesson plans:

    • Topic 1: Observations only; look for differentiation techniques for ELL’s and special needs students.

    • Topic 2: Phonemic Awareness and Phonics

    • Topic 3: Word Study and Fluency

    • Topic 4: Vocabulary Development

    • Topic 5: Comprehension

  • Lesson Plans and Teaching Lessons

    • In each of the four areas and using literacy assessments available in the classroom, administer a pre-test to one student in your practicum classroom.

    • After you have administered the pre-test, confer with the mentor teacher and prepare lesson plans to address the four areas of literacy development. These lessons should be based on the direct instruction model. The lessons should reflect the areas of need identified through the data analysis collected from the pre-test.

    • Teach the lessons to the one student you assessed previously.

    • Administer assessments as a post-test to the same student. Analyze the data to see if learning has improved from the pre-test to the post-test.
