Wax Museum/Student Expectation Outline

Content-based classroom events can be a fun way to engage students and involve families in their children’s education. Planning for such an event in your classroom is a big task and takes time and preparation. Preparing for assignments and events requires attention to detail, realistic and specific expectations, and practice.

Part 1: Outline

Select a grade level 5-8 and outline a lesson that integrates social studies and the arts, and turns the classroom into a wax museum as an instructional activity. The outline given to the students should provide the rationale for the assignment, explain the requirements to successfully complete the assignment, and describe how to present the wax museum to peers and families.

Include the following in the outline for the wax museum activity:

  1. A state social studies standard and an arts standard.
  2. Learning objectives
  3. Description of how and where the wax museum will be presented, including how it successfully integrates two visual arts components (art, music, dance, drama).
  4. Expectations for the student that explain the requirements, i.e., select a historical figure that has had an influence locally or globally.
  5. How students will present selected figure visually and physically.
  6. Guidelines for students on using technology to find and use information resources as preparation for the wax museum presentation.
  7. The technological tools you would use to share this event with the school, families, and the community.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on how the wax museum outline could be successfully integrated into a future classroom. How does this assignment expand verbal communication techniques, including inquiry, collaboration, and student interaction?

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Clinical Field Experience C : Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan

Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Part 1: Mini-Lesson Plan           

Prior to going into your clinical field experience classroom this week, use the data received from the pre-assessment to complete the “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan” template. This mini-lesson plan will be administered to the selected group of students to support instruction to meet the selected standards. The “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan” includes:

  • Social Studies standard, arts standard, and grade level
  • Learning objective(s)
  • Instructional Strategy
  • 100-150 word description of a learning activity that successfully integrates social studies and the arts
  • Formative assessment

Part 2: Mini-Lesson Implementation

After completing the “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan,” share it with your mentor teacher for feedback. Provided permission, teach the mini-lesson plan to the small group of selected students. During your lesson, ensure you are answering questions from your students, asking questions that support critical thinking and problem-solving, and observing to see if each student understands the content (this might require formative assessments before, during, and after the lesson to determine understanding).

Part 3: Reflection

In 250-500 words, reflect on the process of using pre-assessment data to develop a lesson plan, and on your experiences teaching the lesson (if applicable).

Include:

  • How you used the data to develop the instruction, selected strategies, and differentiation strategies to meet learning needs.
  • Other accommodations that would have supported the learning.
  • How integrating other content areas might engage students.
  • How this lesson could support short-term and long-term instructional planning.
  • How you will use your findings in your future professional practice.

Submit your reflection and “Social Studies Mini-Lesson Plan” as one deliverable.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Document the locations and hours you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.
