Revised Lesson Plan for Science Teacher - Nick Jarvis

Coaching Plan: Peer_Coaching_Plan

Focus: Our team will be working on developing creative and interesting ways to enhance students' science investigations. Technology should be integrated, not as a separate subject or as a once-in-a-while project, but as a tool to promote and extend student learning on a daily basis. Our challenge will be to find ways to use technology -- and to help students use it -- that don’t take time away from core subjects.

Technology Tools: Teachers will use Moodle, databases, websites and other media along with overhead projectors, document cameras and Smartboards.

Team Coaches: Library Media Director, High School Social Studies Teacher,
Team Members: Anne: Middle School Science Teacher and Nick: High School Science Teacher

Learning Goals:
To increase student academic achievement in Science.
Improve student ability with class investigation procedures.

Team Goals:
Support of team members to help each other integrating technology in their classrooms.
Set up and integrate the use of Moodle in their classrooms.
Create successful "technology experiences" for each other and their students.

Coaching Plan:
Coaching will include peer observation and individual meetings at least once a month. Teachers will also have the opportunity to observe technology lessons from other teachers.

Great Resources:
Moodle and books on how to use Moodle.
