Description: For your final assignment in this course, please record yourself teaching one of the theories from 518 in the form of a lesson. You will be using the methods described in your “Orientation Teaching Video Proposal” to teach your lesson. You will create a video presentation to show your results.
Your video should include:
1 Title screen (10-15 seconds) - your name, section number, instructor, title.
2 Video Footage (up to 5 minutes) - including at least 2 captions describing what theories and concepts from the theories. Ex. Behaviorism: the use of a consequence (praise) immediately following a desired behavior in order to increase the behavior. Ex. Sociocultural: use of scaffolding to assist learner. Use of partially completed order of steps for making a cafe mocha.
3 Lesson Objectives to design a lesson (10-15 seconds) - include boilerplate language (The student will be able to…), cognitive process, and content.
Example- The student will be able to explain the steps involved in making a strawberry banana smoothie.
4 The lesson (up to 10 minutes) - show three strategies you applied. Captions should highlight:
? the strategy (Ex. creation of a mnemonic to help learner remember sequence)
? the theory that supports that strategy (see example from #2 above)
? the assessment strategy/ies (i.e. formal/informal, formative/summative, observation using a rubric, authentic, 10-item multiple-choice quiz, and etc.)
? captions should be on screen for 5-7 seconds
5 Reflection (up to 5 minutes) – speaking directly to the camera, analyze your lesson overall, the design of your lesson, and the implementation of your lesson. Make sure to discuss the relevance of the learning theories to your lesson. Some questions you should consider are:
? What were the strengths and weaknesses in your approach?
? What prior experiences, knowledge, and skills helped students succeed with this learning experience?
? Will students learn the concepts or skills well enough for application in new and novel situations? If not, what additional learning experiences might better support this level of application?
? What elements of practice need to change in order to improve student access to learning and participation (e.g., changes to the instructional sequence, stronger links to students’ prior knowledge, more differentiated support for learners, efforts to ensure more equitable student participation, etc.)?
? How does the theoretical perspective on learning that you used help you make sense of your future instructional practices? How will the theoretical perspective on learning that you used help you make sense of your instructional practices?
6 Closing screen (10-15 seconds) - this can say whatever you like, but should indicate that your video is ending.
