We are starting fieldwork soon and I am so excited! We will be teaching a grouping of third, forth, and fifth graders from a local school. We were able to choose groups to work with for these lessons and I think that I am in a great group. We are all hard workers and excited about this opportunity to really test our teaching skills. Our group will be going first and we are going to be teaching about the Hudson River Valley during colonial times, specifically, when the Hudson Valley was owned by the Dutch and called New Netherland.
We will be teaching a direct instruction lesson, a guided-inquiry lesson, and a cooperative learning lesson. We have lots of great activities planned and have come up with great ideas to engage the students in the learning process!
Stay tuned for a reflection about our lessons!
