Best practice involves learning environments where students are active participants, involved in meaningful, hands-on learning opportunities that involve equitable use of technology. This lesson plan template incorporates many areas of instructional rigor and student engagement that will result in student learning, collaboration, and success at all levels, with opportunities to gain 21st century learning skills.
After you've completed the “Sequenced Steps” section to integrate technology into the lesson, what management and/or organizational practices would you recommend to enable smooth implementation?
What might you include to address students with special needs, including those served in special education, ELL and gifted/talented programs?
Evaluate the lesson. What worked and what didn’t work? How will you modify this lesson for future use? How did the use of technology enhance student learning/collaboration?

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
