Part 1: Mini-Lesson Plan           

Prior to going into your clinical field experience classroom this   week, use the data received from the pre-assessment to complete the   “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan” template. This   mini-lesson plan will be administered to the selected group of   students to support instruction to meet the selected standards. The   “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan” includes:

  • Social Studies standard, arts standard, and grade level
  • Learning objective(s)
  • Instructional Strategy
  • 100-150 word description of a learning activity that     successfully integrates social studies and the arts
  • Formative assessment

Part 2: Mini-Lesson Implementation

After completing the “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan,”   share it with your mentor teacher for feedback. Provided permission,   teach the mini-lesson plan to the small group of selected students.   During your lesson, ensure you are answering questions from your   students, asking questions that support critical thinking and   problem-solving, and observing to see if each student understands the   content (this might require formative assessments before, during, and   after the lesson to determine understanding).

Part 3: Reflection

In 250-500 words, reflect on the process of using pre-assessment   data to develop a lesson plan, and on your experiences teaching the   lesson (if applicable).


  • How you used the data to develop the instruction, selected     strategies, and differentiation strategies to meet learning   needs.
  • Other accommodations that would have supported the   learning.
  • How integrating other content areas might engage   students.
  • How this lesson could support short-term and     long-term instructional planning.
  • How you will use your     findings in your future professional practice.

Submit your reflection and “Social Studies Mini-Lesson   Plan” as one deliverable.
