Integrated Instructional Plan: Inquiry-Based.
Problem-based instruction enhances collaboration, engagement and learning. Teachers guide the learning
through discussions, research, questioning and hands-on activities over multiple days. The final product gives
an answer to the essential question and a deeper understanding of the learning and scientific processes.
Your previous lesson design was for a problem-based science lesson that integrated additional content areas.
For this assignment, you will use the “COE Lesson Plan Template” to develop two additional lesson plans for
the unit you created in Topic 4. The two new lesson plans will focus on inquiry-based science instruction, and
will include the additional content area you selected for your previous lesson plan.
Include the following in each lesson:
Grade-appropriate state standards in science and the additional content area you selected, and aligned
Instructional strategies that apply in-depth content knowledge, learning resources, and engagement strategies
that create meaningful and engaging opportunities for students to learn, practice, and master content and
In addition, write a 150-250 word reflection discussing how you appropriately modified instruction to meet the
learning needs of each child. How did this
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.
This benchmark assignment assesses the following programmatic competencies and professional standards:
