Were the two learning objectives met? Provide evidence from the video.
Both objectives were met because the child was able to explain and communicate to me
effectively and he was able to use the transition words correctly. In the video, he wrote
down almost the exact instructions of how to make a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.
As he was writing his instructions, I noticed that he was using the transition words as he
was describing each step.
Was there a clear connection to one theory outlined in the Module 4 Lecture Narrative? If
so, describe how. Provide evidence from the video.
I would say that there was a connection between the constructive theory because this
activity was created through different learning experiences that I have had in the past.
The constructive theory suggests that learning is constructed through experiences. During
the lesson, the student used his knowledge of communication and cooking to help him
explain to me how to make a PB&J. He had also done this activity once before, but that
was a few years ago.
What percentage of the time during the learning experience were the children engaged
with planned content?
I would say that my student was engaged about 85% of the time because he was listening,
writing his instructions, and he was also reading his instructions to me. He was involved
in all parts of the activity.
Was the learning experience developmentally appropriate for the children? If so, describe
