Discussion for Nuclear Energy Lesson Plan
Beth Berube (Teacher (K-12))
This is a nice lesson plan to accompany the StAIR used later with Nuclear Energy. This lesson plans allows the diffciulty of learning about nuclear energy by using multiple resources such as video, audio, and closed captioning. Allowing for many of the UDL principals to be accomodated. This is a nice way to have a different approach than just straight lecture to present the necessary material.
Seema Goghar (Teacher (K-12))
The lesson plan is well designed. In terms of the UDL principles, the author used multiple means of action and expressions, and student engagement methods. This included the videos, audios, discussion forums, as well as having students create graphs and explaining their undrestandings. Something to think about is how to present the same information using a different form, ie. creating a model or having students do something more hands-on. Another suggestion is to have some form of discussion during the lesson and/or at various points during the video presentation. This will encourage more student engagement and reinforce conceptual understanding.
