CADRE Lesson Planning Guide
Here are some things to consider as you design your lesson plan:
What is the main idea that you want to teach?

For example, do you want students to be able to describe the process of splinting a broken arm, create a sprite object in a graphic design program, or safely use a chef ’s knife? Try to keep the focus tight so that your lesson doesn’t instead become a unit.


How can you “hook” students at the start of your lesson, focusing their attention so that they are ready to learn? Start by thinking about your main idea. What aspect of it could be particularly interesting to the students in your class? Things that surprise, excite, intrigue, or raise questions are all good starting points.
What are the lesson’s specific learning objectives?

In other words, what should the students be able to do, demonstrate, or explain to indicate that they have grasped the main idea? A typical lesson has between two and four objectives. Too many more and you may want to split your lesson into several separate ones.


What activities will help your students achieve the learning objectives?

Lectures, demonstrations, lab work, group work and student projects are all examples of activities that you many want to consider.


How will you assess whether students have met the learning objectives?

A test or quiz at the end is only one way to assess learning. Portfolios, observations, and writing samples can all be used as additional forms of assessment.



Let’s get started!
Lesson Title: Vietnam War / Counter Culture
Grade Level: Grade 11 US History
Unit/Topic: Vietnam War / Counter Culture
Lesson Plan Overview / Details: This is the “main idea” that you want to teach for this lesson.


The main idea I want to teach is the cultural implications of the Vietnam war with regards to the soldiers experience and the emergence of the counter culture. I will also go cover the basic time line of American envolvement in Vietnam as a frame of reference.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:


  • Students will understand the basic history of American involvement in the Vietnam war and its place in the Cold War

  • Students will understand American soldiers experience in Vietnam through reading first hand accounts and watching parts of the video “Vietnam: A Television History”

  • Students will understand the emergence of the Counter Culture movement as it pertains to the hippie movment, anti war movement, and civil rights movement.


Activities in the Lesson
Plan out the different parts of your lesson using the text blocks below. Highlight and Bold the types of activities you are describing and create enough detail for another teacher to understand.
