To Design Instruction, Option B:
How One Part Relates to Others (Grades 3-5)

Estimated Time: 6-9 hours.

Overview: Participants engage in a lesson designed around two benchmarks:

11A Systems (3-5)#1
In something that consists of many parts, the parts usually influence one another.

11A Systems (3-5)#2
Something may not work as well (or not at all) if a part is missing, broken, worn out, mismatched, or misconnected.

Participants study these benchmarks in depth and then analyze how effectively the lesson’s content and pedagogy would contribute to students’ understanding the benchmarks. Next, they use a Project 2061 design procedure to design a new lesson on a topic of their choice, and finally, if time permits, they reflect on the design procedure they have used. Throughout, they study and discuss relevant parts of SFAA and Benchmarks.
