This is a lesson plan designed to provide ask risk online high school students the skills and encouragement they need to stay in school. The goal that will be addressed during this lesson will be in my Career & College course to provide online students a plan to become successful in the workforce or entering college. Students will learn the consequences of dropping out of high school. I plan to meet this goal by increasing the collaborative environment in my online classroom and combining it with the students’ effort in their coursework. By increasing collaboration, shared interests, and building a sense of community support, students will be more motivated to stay in school.
Informing at risk students so that they can make the best choices after high school is a very important lesson in life. The lesson plan is thorough and the content presented is convincing. However, in terms of catering to different learning styles, I think it is very reliant on teacher led input. For example 'the teacher will introduce the lesson and explain importance of making a career or college plan'. If it were me, I would ask the students in the first instance to come to class with a short speech, video/audio poster on why they think it’s important to have a college/career plan and then everyone can discuss. The teacher can add input to ensure the objectives of the lesson are met. Although the lesson plan states that presentations will be viewed and speakers will be invited to speak I hope that it includes students' voices and not just outside people telling them what choices are available. I think that at this age it is important for them to be as active as possible in finding out and evaluating the choices available. For example, do students have a say which speakers are invited? I also think that the students should have as much ownership of this course as possible as it is all about them and the teacher takes the role of the facilitator and expert guide.
I like the range of tools used for example: e mail. skype and online class rooms. The lesson plan is easy to follow and use.

This lesson plan is meant to help students discover different options for themselves after completing high school. This lesson plan has several objectives laid out that require students to recall information, perform research, and apply their knowledge. The author identifies an objective as “identifying examples of concepts” as “Teacher will present information and resources about how to get into college, vocational school, or enter the workforce.” However, this is not a learning objective for the students and rather presents one of the instructional techniques that will be utilized in the lesson. Therefore, it should not be included as an instructional objective. It is also not clear what exactly will be assessed to determine whether students have met the objective. It would be useful if the lesson were more clear in what assignments the students will be completing (are they writing a paper about how preparing for the future is important? How do you know that they have researched post-secondary options?) In terms of apply UDL principles, it is not clear whether there are multiple means of representation. Part of the difficult in assessing this is a lack of detailed information about what students will be interacting with online. Furthermore, this lesson plan isn’t for a specific lesson but rather a framework for a whole course. Since it is a framework for a whole course, the lesson plan length limits how useful the information could be for other users to utilize in their own teaching.
There are no links to the resources being used nor are there descriptions about their uses. It would be helpful to know what exactly eCollege is for users who may be unfamiliar with it.
