As a fifth grade teacher, I appreciate the math language being included into the lesson plan. It truly helps focus on using the best terminology to help build understanding.
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standard(s) tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource
-Has clear assessment strategies that will accurately measure (student progress or mastery) of the specified standards, but needs additional (formative or summative) strategies

Strengths: This resource has great quality questions to ask students through the engagement portion of the lesson. The materials are simple to have available to all students. Sorting the cards and data is powerful to the discussion and analysis of the data graphs.

Opportunities: Pairings of students who needs support or accommodations.

*I am a third grade teacher and I greatly enjoyed viewing this lesson because I am able to get insight on how to enrich my students and best prepare them for the next grade level. I absolutely loved seeing the task cards because this promotes hands on activity and motivation for the students.
* I think there is full alignment to depth and breadth of standard NC.4.MD.4 Students need to represent and interpret data using whole numbers. Collect data by asking a question that yields numerical data. Make a representation of data and interpret data in a frequency table, scaled bar graph, and/or line plot. Determine whether a survey question will yield categorical or numerical data. According to the lesson there are visuals of different types of graphs and questions that go along with each graph for student to interpret.
* Another strength to this lesson is the clear break down of each learning activity. There are opportunities for all learners - those that have mastered this standard and those that need remediation. The differentiation is evident and applicable.
*The learning objectives are clearly stated and it gives students the opportunity to collaborate and think critically together.
* The lesson includes clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource
*Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard
* A suggestion I would make is that the powerpoint does have a couple spelling errors. I see the powerpoint as a handout for the lesson instead of an interactive pieces to enhance the lesson.

I am an Accelerated Teacher for 4th and 5th grade students in Durham. I really enjoyed the flow of this lesson and the PowerPoint that went along with the lesson for teachers to use. I believe the lesson has:
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.
-Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard.
2 strengths: 1.) Students are actively engaged in an instructional task that promotes the Four C's. Task is appropriate given the age and ability of targeted learner. 2.) Content presented requires minimal or no additional material to address instructional goals. Key concepts, ideas, and arguments are clear and supported by an appropriate level of detail to ensure student understanding.
Opportunities for growth: I do not see any opportunities for growth but there are a few spelling errors in the PowerPoint and lesson plan document that need to be fixed.
