Website Resources for Lesson Plans and Analyzing Assessment Results

Over the next few weeks you will plan and implement 3 tutoring sessions/lesson plans with your student.  You will create and implement these LPs based on your student’s strengths and weaknesses identified in the assessment process.

The ILP should also be based on the 5 components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension and use research-based strategies.  The content of each lesson should be based on your student’s individual needs.  In other words, each lesson does not have to cover all 5 components but may focus on a particular area of weakness.  Throughout the 3 LPs in your ILP though, each of the 5 components should be addressed at least once and at a level appropriate for your student. For example, if you are working with a 6th grader who doesn’t show a strong weakness in phonemic awareness, you may want to choose to include a quick, opening activity to practice advanced phonemic awareness skills (see 95 Percent Group link on Website Resources for an example).  In order to meet the needs of your student, you may also choose to focus on a certain area in multiple lessons, either briefly or in-depth.   Each lesson plan should build on your student’s strengths and identified weaknesses and use research-based strategies.

The Website Resources for LP page in Module 7 has many resources to help plan and provides content and strategies in these 5 areas.
