Unit III Scholarly Activity
In this unit, you have gleaned multiple aspects related to effective lesson planning. However, proper planning is not limited to the classroom alone. Even some coaches utilize the foundational techniques encompassed within linear-rational planning to help win ballgames. Read the following scenario, and answer the questions that follow:
Coach Smith is the head high school football coach. He states that the team will use rushing offense and strong defense strategies to win the first game of the season. He describes the rushing plays and new defensive strategies to achieve this game plan. Coach Smith gives specific directions during practice, and he analyzes each players skillset to see where they need additional guidance and practice. During each practice, he seeks to focus on developing the critical offensive and defensive skills that each player needs to be congruent with the established game plan. Coach Smith assesses the performance and skillset of each player during practice and uses these observations to determine his starting lineup for offense and defense.
Using the scenario above and based on all that you have learned in this unit regarding planning, you must determine the proper alignment of learning objectives, instruction, and assessments by answering the following questions on the assignment template. (ATTACHED)
Review the scenario presented throughout the unit from Ms. Herstorys second day of class. Apply the analogy from Coach Smiths scenario to Ms. Herstorys scenario. Your response must distinguish proper learning objectives that Ms. Herstory could use based on her utilization of the linear-rational approach to planning. For the content of Ms. Herstorys U.S. history class, please feel free to use a history topic of your choice to use as a basis for your learning objectives. Using the same template that you used for Part I of this assignment, refer to the Part II section, and answer the questions to complete this portion of the assignment.
