  1. 2. You have two options (choose only one):

Option 1: Attend the feedback session on Saturday afternoon, at 3:30 (tentative time), and submit a reflection paper on the conference.

Option 2: Pick a standard from state or national standards and develop a lesson plan to demonstrate how a concept introduced at the conference can be used to address the standard(s). You may use any of the following standards:

a) The NCTM and NSTA Curriculum and Evaluation Standards.
b) The South Dakota Science Content Standards.
c) The South Dakota Mathematics Content Standards.
d) Common Core State Standards

The lesson plan must list the standard and how it is being met. Objectives, textbooks, and supplementary material to be used must be included in the plan. For science lessons that involve experimentation by students, you must incorporate controls, replicates, and statistics where appropriate. Further lesson plan guidelines are given below.

LESSON PLAN INSTRUCTIONS:
Select a teaching unit that includes an activity you learned about at the SDSTA/SDCTM conference. Develop the activity into a lesson plan that has sufficient detail that any other science/math teacher could implement it. Please do not copy a lesson plan from a textbook, as this will be your original work. (A sample format is attached to the syllabi). The plan should include:
  1. 1. The objectives to be accomplished by the students;
  2. 2. A detailed introduction (exploratory phase) on how the lesson would be initiated, including the questions that you plan to ask (along with the answers you expect);
  3. 3. A brief description of the activity;
  4. 4. A detailed description of the post activity discussion (or concept application phase), again including all questions that you plan to ask (and the answers you expect);
