All assessments should align with standards, objectives, and learning activities. Assessments interact with instruction to deliver an effective learning experience. Teachers need an assortment of formative assessments to check for learning during instruction and summative assessments to check for mastery. In their assessment planning, teachers understand that when students are involved in the assessment/feedback process, student outcomes tend to improve.
For this assignment, use the “COE Lesson Plan Template” to create two lesson plans that address a selected National Health Education Standard and a Next Generation Science Standard and are designed to meet the needs of the students in the “Class Profile.”
Write a 250-500 word reflection explaining how your instructional strategies helped to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills while meeting the needs of all students. How did your formative and summative assessments check for student mastery?
Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly sources.
