Lesson Plan : Character Counts

Teacher Name:

 Grade 7-8
 Language Arts

 courtesy, behaviors, appropriate, inappropriate, and interrupt.
 Students will understand the importance of courtesy in school. Students will be more courteous with others.
 Students will identify appropriate and inappropriate behaviors. Students will write the answers on the worksheet during lecture. Students will practice/demonstrate courtesy with their partner.
 Overhead, lesson, worksheet, and pen/pencil.
 Point out the behaviors we use in the classroom. Identify which are appropriate and which are inappropriate behaviors. Compare and contrast those behaviors.
 Role play with a volunteer. Compare and contrast the two scenarios.
 Students will choose a partner and practice being courteous with others. They are to use "please" and "thank you" as well as make eye contact, shake hands, and smile when speaking to their partner.
 I will restate what the instructions are and have them say them back to me. If any of them feel insecure, I will partner up with them for the activity.
Checking For Understanding:
 I will walk around as students are working on the independent practice. The worksheet will show me the areas students understood and those that they did not.
 Have 3-5 volunteers to role play in front of the classs what they have practiced with their partner. If we are running out of time, I will randomly call on students to tell the class what they have learned from today's lesson.
 I have seen a difference in the students when I put time into writing out the lesson plan. Lesson planning isn't as difficult anymore and it doesn't take as long anymore.
Teacher Reflections:
 Wow! The lesson went well. One thing tha worked well was the role playing activity. Students seemed to enjoy the activity as well. Next time, I would probably have them partner up with someone in their group because that will save us some time.
