Lesson Plans

Throughout my on-campus, observation, and student teaching experiences, I have designed lesson plans in various subject areas.

Each lesson plan adheres to Michigan Educational Standards and includes notation on specific standards.  Grade level focus ranges from kindergarten through eighth grade.  Some lessons adhere to standards of multiple grade levels.
