2. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the lesson plan.
Strengths
Some strengths that I noticed throughout the EnVision lesson plan include a very structured layout with detailed step-by-step instructions. The teacher uses the basic lesson plan structure to hit all the required topics necessary for a full lesson plan. She first Reviews what they might already know, and draws this new lesson into what the children are learning for the day. Written into the lesson plan are essential questions she will be asking to know if the students are on track. Then, she will Engage the students and “set the purpose” using vocabulary terminology such as “ separate.” She leads the class to see if they can learn their subtraction problem by showing them

In her notes section she includes that if the students are not understanding what is being taught then she will “guide” them to the overall goal in hopes that they catch on to what is being taught. This is important for students because they are not supposed to be given the answer, they need to use their skills and guide themselves to the answer with the support of the teacher.
Another major strength is her use of addressing ELL learners and ways to accommodate that. For example, in one of the math problems she emphasizes instead of writing out the problem for the child to verbalize what they are say9ing. It is much easier to verbalize what a child is thinking instead of having them write it out when English is not their first language. By allowing a child to verbalize it makes it easier for them to get their point across without feeling stressed they cannot write their answer perfectly.

That child would know that it is there job as leader to ensure that everyone at the table understands what is being taught and if they can address minor questions if the teacher cannot make it to every student. I would not hand out separate worksheets in class based on skill level, and I would include a mixture of all types of problems so the students see they are all doing the same work. If a child did need individual instruction or was ahead of their peers, I would then send home the worksheet that fit their specific needs like she had planned so they can turn it in the morning after. I would base my instruction off their homework and not an in-class checklist because again students are quick to get discouraged. I think that the teachers sources for her worksheets and her question to ask students are very on task with the lesson plan. Overall, I would use all of her worksheets because they do address the subtraction problem very well. I just foresee an issue when it comes to the various skill levels in the classroom. It all depends on how she would address the students with various needs, and what might happen to the higher level students if she cannot accommodate everyone
