Standards

Assessment (formative
and/or summative)

All students will display 5/6 of the following items on their personal weekly writing: place
paper with holes on the left side, add a title/centered on the top line, indent each
paragraph, capitalize the beginning of sentences, add proper punctuation at the
conclusion of a sentence, and stay within the margins of the paper.
All students will pass their weekly spelling tests with a 70% or higher.
All students will engage in positive peer support/feedback, at least once a day, while in a
small reading group.
Anchor Standards:
Engage in literacy learning through a collaborative and community effort and in an
integrated fashion, rather than as discreet skills in isolation.
Use meta-cognitive strategies to monitor literacy for learning.
Engage the five essential components of reading at all grade levels based on individual
student needs.

LESSON DELIVERY
# of minutes: 2-3 minutes
This lesson is a combination of centers. There is not one hook, but rather, students are
trained to move through four stations, as independent groups, as well as to work with the
teacher during one specific station. To begin the class, I will explain to the students what the
expectations are and what they are to accomplish. In past lessons, I have invested ample time

to teach them how to effectively work together. This lesson is the final creation of what the
Language Arts stations will look like for the remainder of this grading period. A three week
foundation has gone into bringing the two classes to a point where they can successfully work
at each center.
Description
UDL principle & description (at least 1):
Multiple Means of Representation

Lesson activities
(Content, methods,
strategies, procedures,
formative assessment)

Rationale
Explain your reason for choosing the UDL
principle:
Through the use of five centers, students are
able to break learning down into smaller
manageable chunks. Students build upon
their skills through various modalities (i.e.,
iPad or laptop, physical textbook or online
textbook, varied spelling options, and
worksheets to name a few).
# of minutes: 60 minutes

1. Students will enter the classroom and find their first center (Stations 1-5). Those who
do not recall what group they are in, or what center they begin at, can view the graphic
organizer located on the whiteboard (see Appendix A). It has been color coded for ease
of viewing. The students have methodically been placed in heterogeneous groups so
that there is a variety of ability levels and strengths. This allows students to lean on one
another for support and understanding when there are questions or concerns. Each
group specifically has a leader placed within it so that there is always someone to take
the lead on guiding the group to success.
2. Station #1 (12 minutes) = Reading Comprehension Center (see Appendix B & H) *I will
monitor this station closely, because it is the driving force and foundation to all of the
other stations (see Appendix G).
Station #2 (12 minutes) = Oral Reading Fluency & Reading Counts Center (see Appendix
C & H)
Station #3 (12 minutes) = Spelling Center (see Appendix D & H)
Station #4 (12 minutes) = Writing Center (see Appendix E & H)
Station #5 (12 minutes) = Technology Center (see Appendix F & H)

University of Kansas Department of Special Education 4


M2: Lesson Plan 1

UDL Description

Rationale:

Representation

Information will be displayed through a variety of modalities. Content


will be presented through the use of textbooks; both online and
through a traditional method. Graphic organizers will be displayed
both in an erasable format as well as through hand written
worksheets. Students will get to read material online, via textbooks,
and through worksheets. They will also get to hear the teacher and
their peers model various Language Arts learning strategies.
There are no physical limitations, at least that I am currently aware of,
in my classroom. However, there are various barriers for students
when it comes to cognitive functioning. Therefore, I have ordered two
iPads, to use for speech-to-text (and many other options), so that two
of my students, with extensive learning barriers, can find success
through assistive technology. I also have at least four students who
need an alternative spelling test. Therefore, I have modified the
traditional test so that students can choose either 10, 15, or 20
spelling words to study each week. As well, I will be adding five bonus
words for those who need to be challenged further. I have also
created an alternative test for those who struggle severely. The
alternative test allows students to highlight the correctly spelled words
out of a set of three words. This method removes the barrier of
writing.
Since motivation differs for students, I have designed some stations
with prizes for earning the most points. I have found that this really
motivates my students. However, for those who struggle to earn
points academically, I also teach students to track the person who
has the best sportsmanship. I have found that my learners who
struggle often earn this prize. This motivates them to be even
more caring to their peers. I also reward students for trying (not
necessarily getting an answer correct). This also motivates my
learners who struggle. In addition, I teach students to set personal
goals by providing choice within given stations. I also provide premade graphic organizers for students to track their learning and

Expression &
Action

Engagement

understanding. This builds self-regulation and self-determination


skills. In addition, I alternate having students work independently, in
small groups, and in pairs so that every preference is met, and so
that learners are also forced out of their comfort zones.

Closure

# of minutes: 3-4 minutes


After students clean up their final station rotations I will have them reflect on the learning from the
day. First, I will have them show me a thumbs up if they worked hard to meet their personal goals
for the day, a thumb to the side if they did okay at some stations, but not others, and a thumbs
down if they really struggled with staying focused and giving it their all. I will then ask everyone to
point to the one person in the room who had the best sportsmanship throughout the learning
time. The person with the most votes will get to choose a prize out of my bucket. Finally, I will
prompt students to hold up one hand as they move throughout the room and count to 10
backwards. When they reach the number one, they will stop and pair up with someone closest to
them to discuss what they liked about the learning today. I will then have them count up from one
to 10, in Spanish, and ask them to stop and pair up with a new partner where they will be asked
to share one thing they would change to make learning better for tomorrow. Finally, I will say, I
need all students in line, ready to switch back to their homeroom class, in 10, 9, 8, voices off in 7,
6, 5, great job _____, 4, 3, 2, 1. Have a wonderful afternoon!
UDL principle & description (at least 1):
Multiple Means of Engagement: By providing several different outlets for reflection (i.e., show of
thumbs, pointing to someone, and sharing out loud), all students will be able to find a way that
works best for them to reflect on their learning.
