* Special Accommodations: Students are for the most part shy and this may be cultural.  They do not for the most part willingly without being called on.  Because of this I will call on each student by name to share, using a seating chart.  On any difficult words that members of the class may not know, I will write it on the board.  I go through the material repetitively, using different ways to assure comprehension.  I also ask a lot of questions to make sure the class are following the material being presented.


Check for Understanding

Identify strategies to be used to determine if students have learned the objectives

During the discussion, take class vote on what people think are correct answers. (5 minutes)


Guided Practice

List activities which will be used to guide student practice and provide a time frame for completing this practice.

Quick write, one paragraph, what impact is China having on the American Economy. (5 minutes)



What method of review and evaluation will be used to complete the lesson?

Share their responses, as time allows.  (5 minutes)

Independent Practice

List homework/seatwork assignment to be given to the students to ensure they have mastered the skill without teacher guidance.

 No independent practice is required.


 Do you need to adjust the times for each activity, allowing more time for some and less for others?  What worked well?  What would you change?  Did the student's paragraphs reflect understanding, or is more discussion necessary on certain aspects?
