    Sample Lesson Plan Template


    TTW = The Teacher Will

    TSW = The Student Will

    Course and Student:

    (Describe the general context of the students and the course for which you anticipate implementing the lesson.)

    “This lesson is intended for an English 101 composition course that consists of Dual Enrollment students, most generally between the ages of 16-18”

    Time frame: ·

    (Describe the amount of time you plan to spend on the lesson, as well as a general position for the lesson within your course - such as the unit you plan to implement the lesson.)

    “This lesson will last approximately 30 minutes and will occur within the timeframe of working on our third paper, an argument”


    (List the student learning outcomes and skills that you hope to achieve for the lesson.)

    “TSW practice how to produce a counter argument”

    “TSW implement close reading”

    AI Tool and Other Materials/Supplies:

    (List the content needed for the lesson to be successful)

    “Access to the Internet. Copies of ‘Civil Disobedience.’ Paper and pencils.”

    Rationale for implementation of AI to teach these standards:

    (Provide insights into why the needed components are necessary. You do not need to justify the pencils and the paper, but why “Civil Disobedience” with AI?)

    “Thoreau’s ‘Civil Disobedience’ is appropriate for this lesson because it fits within the greater scope of the English curriculum but also poses powerful arguments that are still relevant today. The consideration of the ‘cog in the machine’ mentality coupled with AI provides a unique learning context”

    Overview of Learning Activities and Tasks

    (Progress through the major movements of your lesson in a way that allows for another to view and generally understand what is necessary for the lesson’s form and function)

    “TSW have read ‘Civil Disobedience’ for homework.”

    “TTW begin class by quoting Thoreau ‘If an injustice requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter-friction to stop the government machine.’”
