Below is the lesson plan from my microteaching lesson to year 7s at Harris School in Rugby. The lesson was on plans and elevations. Reflection is in red at the end.



Plans and Elevations

Date and Time:

13/10/2011 9:15am





Personal Teaching and Learning Targets:

(taken from evaluations and learning conversations referencing QTS standards)

Q6: Have a commitment to collaborative and co-operative working

Q32: Work as a team member and identify opportunities for working with colleagues, sharing the development of effective practice with them.

Q33: Ensure that colleagues working with them are appropriately involved in supporting learning and understand the roles they are expected to fill

Learning Objectives:

(Highlight those to be shared with pupils)

Learning outcomes/Success Criteria:

(Highlight those to be shared with pupils)

Discuss why we use plans and elevations; their uses and situations that they help to simplify.

Construct simple plans and be able to draw them in plan view, side elevation and front elevation, as well as fully understanding these terms.

Be able construct three dimensional shapes from given plans.

Students are able to contribute to class understanding of plans and elevations, and are able to suggest when they may be used.

Given constructing tools, students are able to describe a simple three dimensional shape that they have constructed using the three views.

Given plans to work from, pupils are able to construct the three dimensional shapes that they describe.

National Curriculum:

1.2a: Combining understanding, experiences, imagination and reasoning to construct new knowledge.

1.3b: Understanding that mathematics is used as a tool in a wide range of contexts.

1.4a: Knowing that mathematics is essentially abstract and can be used to model, interpret or represent situations.

2.2c: Visualise and work with dynamic images.

2.2k: Makes accurate mathematical diagrams, graphs and constructions on paper and on screen.

3.2a: Properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

4d: Work on problems that arise in other subjects and in contexts beyond the school.

Individual learner’s needs:

An extension task will be available for those finding the initial task too easy. Those finding it too challenging are not required to attempt the extension.

Developing and incorporating literacy, numeracy, and ICT:



Support for lesson from powerpoint.

None. But from a cross subject perspective what they learn will be useful in graphics.
