					Teacher Name: Rachel Bibbs        Lesson Plans- 8th grade Math (Linear Equations) Week: Oct. 3-Oct.7, 2011                                                 Unit:1

         CoreContent/Common       Define, evaluate, and compare functions.

         Core                     8.F.1: Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of
                                         ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output. (Note: Function notation is not required in Grade 8.)

                                  8.F.2: Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables,
                                  or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented
                                  by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.

         Learning Target          I can determine whether a relation (represented as a mapping, set of ordered pairs, table, sequence, graph, equation, or context) is a
                                  function.

         Outline of Instruction   Vocabulary: mapping, set, relation, input, output, function , domain , range. scatter plot, vertical line test

                                           Teacher will discuss vocabulary & examples as students take notes in their foldable. Teacher will then model problems
                                            from Ch. 2.3 problem 1 pg 68, where students have to analyze ordered pairs as students take notes. Students will have
                                            to find the domain, range, function, etc.

                                           Once concept is grasped, students work with partners to complete problem 3 characteristics of graphs pg. 70 where
                                            students will determine if each sequence represents a function, explain why or why not. If it is a function, identify its
                                            domain and range. Students will continue to solve these types of problems until concept is grasped. Students will then
                                            share as a class.

                                           To check for understanding of concepts, students will individually complete problems given by teacher. We will discuss
                                            problems as a class.

                                           If time allows, student will complete online Carnegie using computer to reinforce concepts learned.

                                           Teacher and students will review concepts learned.

Thursday




           Outline of Instruction
                                              Teacher will review input/output tables and how to graph functions from previous day lesson. As an entrance activity
                                               teacher will ask students to think about why clothing had been made in other countries? Teacher will call on students to
                                               answer as the responses are recorded on whiteboard. Teacher and students will discuss responses.

                                              Teacher will then model problem #1 from Ch. 2.5 pg 92, where students have to solve a cost analysis problem about the
                                               total cost of an order of t-shirts being made. Teacher will model how to describe the problem situation in your own words.
                                               Teacher will then model how to solve the problem and create a function table as students take notes.

                                              Once concept is grasped, students will work with partners to complete a problem similar to problem #1. Students will be
                                               given a word problem where they are required to describe the problem situation in their own words and then solve for the
                                               solution. Students will have to explain how they calculated the price and will then create a function table for the problem
                                               (input/output). Students will be able to teach others various methods of how they solved the problem. Students will
                                               participate in a talk to talk where partners will discuss responses with other partners to compare solutions. Students will
                                               then share as a class.

                                              To check for understanding of concepts, students will individually complete problems given by teacher. We will discuss
                                               problems as a class.

                                              If time allows, student will complete online Carnegie using computer to reinforce concepts learned.

                                              Teacher and students will review concepts learned.

                                      INTERPRET models/representations of elements;
                                      CLASSIFY elements based upon patterns in their physical (e.g., density, boiling point, solubility) and chemical (e.g.,
                                       flammability, reactivity) properties.


                                  Models enhance understanding that an element is composed of a single type of atom. Organization/interpretation of
                                  data illustrates that when elements are listed according to the number of protons, repeating patterns of physical (e.g.,
                                  density, boiling point, solubility) and chemical properties (e.g., flammability, reactivity), can be used to IDENTIFY
                                  families of elements with similar properties.DOK 2

                           1.All bullies have two things in common:

                           a.lack of self confidence
                           b.friendship
                           c.insecurity
                           d.positive relationships
Outline of Instruction     Real life connection: A good citizen is respectful and obeys laws & rules.

                                   Teacher will review & give examples of being a good citizen pg. 36 “What do you stand for?” Teacher will discuss ways to
                                    make be a good citizen. Teacher & students will review ways that they can be a good citizen whether at school or outside
                                    of school. Students can share with class.


                                   Students will continue preparing their speech, rap, or song and will present with class. Students will then participate in a
                                    “play a voting game” activity where students can vote on a list of issues. Students will be given index cards with a yes,
                                    no, or not sure and will display a card as they vote on the issue. Pg.38


                                   Students will then complete an assignment that allows them to be an activist. They have to choose a problem, research it
                                    and brainstorm & list possible solutions. Students will present their findings to the class.


                                   Teacher & students will review key concepts learned about being a good citizen.

                                    important terms appear in colored type (teal). Each term is defined in the Glossary. After students have completed the reading,
                                    ask, What are the three distinct regions into which the colonies can be grouped? What was the climate like in the New England
                                    Colonies? How would you describe the land in the New England Colonies? In the Middle Colonies? What was the climate like in

                                    Who was denied the right to vote in the colonies? (Note: you may want to have students use the Prereading Handout on page xv
                                    of the lesson guide to conduct a prereading of the chapter.)

                                    Students will design a billboard encouraging people to settle in one of the colonies you studied. You may select any colony except
                                    the one for which you created your booth. Your billboard should include the following:
                                    • At least four colorful symbols or simple drawings to represent characteristics of the colony. Pick the characteristics that would
                                    most likely attract settlers.
                                    • A short caption (2-5 words) for each symbol or drawing that explains what the symbol or drawing represents.
                                    • A short, clever slogan that will help people remember why they should settle in the colony you have selected.

                                    Teacher and students will review concepts learned.

                                              Teacher will introduce the colonial brochure project. For this project, students will be required to research a colony of their choice,
                                               gather information about the colony such as economics, weather, founder of colony, population, etc. Using the information,
                                               students will have to create a 3 folded brochure about the colony. Students will also have to include why someone would want to
                                               visit or live in their colony. Students will also need to include pictures such as picture of the state, selling crop, etc. Students will use
                                               the computer, Microsoft word, to create their brochure.

                                              Teacher and students will review concepts learned.

Outline of Instruction
                                              Teacher & students will review life in the colonies.

                                              Students will complete journalist activity were they have to pretend you are a British journalist who has spent a year living in colonial
                                               America. You kept a journal to record your impressions of daily life. You want your journal to be published so that the British will
                                               have an accurate view of life in colonial America. Use the information from your Reading Notes to create an illustrated journal, as
                                               follows:
                                                • Give your journal a catchy title.
                                                • Date each entry and use it to describe at least one aspect of colonial life.
                                                • Include well-chosen details in the narrative to make the journal more realistic.
                                                Use your imagination to explain how you learned these details. For example, you might write, “November 18,
                                      1750. Over the past six months, I have been lucky to be a houseguest of several families throughout the colonies. Through my experiences, I
                                      have learned that colonial families….”
                                                • Include information on at least eight aspects of colonial life. The information should be written for an audience that has never been
                                      to America and knows little about colonial life.
                                               • Include at least four simple sketches to illustrate key ideas that you mention in your journal.
                                               • Add creative touches to make your journal personal.
                                               • Write a total of 500–700 words, free of grammatical and spelling errors.

                                              When students finished, teacher & students will review concepts learned.
