PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These planning templates, available as a PDF and Word document, provide a straightforward structure for planning your lesson. The ELA lesson plan template incorporates prompts to help you follow the TCRWP Workshop Model. For both subjects, reminders are provided in checklist form on the right-hand side of each component of the lesson plan. These bullets align with Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching. Teachers can use these templates to prepare for observations or as a guide for daily planning. Simply fill in the boxes with your desired learning outcomes and procedures!

Although documents are designed specifically for Reading, Writing, and Math lessons, they can be easily adapted for science and social studies.

Note: Templates have been used in grades K-5. If downloaded correctly, you should receive two word documents and two PDF documents. The PDFs are identical to the word documents, but have been provided in case the formatting is off when downloading my word document.

I hope you will find this product useful! Please email me (ginalorentz@gmail.com) or comment with any questions or suggestions for improving the lesson plan templates.

Thank you! The product looks great! I just have one silly question. The section on the right with the boxes, when writing the lesson plan and handing it in for an administrator (I have an interview and need to use the Danielson rubric)do I keep that section for them to check off or do I delete it as in its only a guide for me when writing?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 11, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
I usually use it as a guide for myself when writing it and then delete it, however, some of my colleagues have used it and left it on to make it very clear to admin where they hit the expectations of the rubric, and it helps for the post observation conference. Up to you, but yes, I personally delete it before handing it in.

Is this editable or is it possible to type right on it?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 10, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
Yes, there is a PDF that cannot be edited so you can see what the template should look like if you use a different version of word, but I also included a Microsoft word file that you can type on and edit as needed. Hope that's what you're looking for!
On  June 9, 2013Joanna Brown (TpT Seller) asked:
I purchased your templates and is currently having a problem downloading it. When I click on download now it is kicking me out of the program to the main screen. I then have to sign in again. How can I download the templates?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 10, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
Hi Joanna. Maybe the file is too large and causing the program to crash when you try to open the Zip file? If you would like me to email you either the PDF or the word file alone, that might help you with the download. Let me know which you would prefer as well as your email address. Thanks!

On  June 5, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
Hi tlh202!

What type of computer are you working from? Perhaps I have a different version of word on my computer. I would be happy to send you a different version to see if that is compatible for you. What is your email address?

You could also contact TPT, it may be an error with the download, since this problem is unique to you.

Hi Regina, I am a 9th to 12th grade art teacher in new york city. We are switching over to the Danielson Framework this fall most likely. We are learning to put together lesson plans and teach according to the framework but are not provided with any sample Danielson Framework based lesson plans (which are aligned with the core curric. of nys). Which of your products would help me design better art lesson plans for the Danielson Framework. I have the book Enhancing Professional Practice by Danielson, and some handouts from our administration. However we have not received any model of what a highly effective teacher's lesson plan looks like or any other lesson plan model of the Danielson. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for templates that you sell or any books or computer programs. thanks Todd NYC
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 25, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
Hi Todd
The art teacher at my school found the danielson framework very challenging in applying to an art program and after working under it for two years has become more comfortable and aware of how the expectations can be met in art class. I think she would be a better person to contact for suggestions. Her email address is laurie@ps330q.org

On  May 22, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi, I really like your template. I am using it for my observation. On page 2, where it says Differentiation- Tier 1,Tier 2, Tier 3, what part of the Danielson model does that correlate to? I can't seem to locate it... Thanks.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 22, 2013Regina Lorentz answered:
Hi algebra 20. Good question.

In Competency 1e (Designing Coherent Instruction), it lists the following:
-understanding of different students’ needs
-a series of learning activities designed to engage students in high-level cognitive activity. These are differentiated, as appropriate, for individual learners.
-Instructional groups are varied as appropriate, with some opportunity for student choice.
-The lesson’s or unit’s structure is clear and allows for different pathways according to diverse student needs

My inclusion of tiered groups during independent practice is my way of varying instructional groups based on diverse student needs as well as providing differentiated learning activities.

Usually when I look at student data, I separate the students into 3-5 groups based on their achievement, strengths, and weaknesses. I name the groups (usually colors, animals, etc) and have changed my templates to have the group names instead of tier 1, tier 2, tier 3. This is easier for me on the spot so I don't have to try to remember what tier number each student is. That might work for you as well, and that way you can post the students' groups on a sheet with velcro and just call out the groups.

Hello,

Thanks for contacting me. I have contacted TPTs and the file itself is not damaged, so it may be a software issue. Please contact the Teachers Pay Teachers help forum for support with compatibility, and if you still cannot open it we can try exchanging the files through email.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope this resolves the issue!
