Lesson Planning Template - Butte County iSTEM
Butte County’s iSTEM project uses three lesson study tools that provide teachers and coaches with support and feedback. The Lesson Planning Template is organized around the 5E model and integrates NGSS Science and Engineering Practices, Cross Cutting Concepts, Math Practices, and English Language Arts Capacities.
Teachers use this template in their lesson study planning time along with the Lesson Planning Rubric which the lesson study faciliators use to evaluate each team’s document. In addition, the iSTEM Facilitation Form is filled out online by the facilitators during the planning, teaching, revising and reteaching of the lesson. The form contains the same categories as the Lesson Study Rubric with additional sections for notes from each stage of the process, teacher interviews, and assessment of student writing. A portion of the resulting lessons will be shared in spring 2017 on My Digital Chalkboard.
