Designing Star Quality S.O.S. Lesson Plans. Tips
Small, Ruth V.
Educators' Spotlight Digest, v2 n1 Win 2007
Once a lesson plan has been submitted to S.O.S., it goes to two independent evaluators, who review every part of the plan, from the title to related standards, using a common rubric. Each section of the lesson plan is rated as either Acceptable, Needs Improvement, or Unacceptable. The collective ratings of all sections of the lesson plan are then considered when deciding to accept the lesson plan to the database. If some sections need revision, the lesson plan will be returned (with feedback) so it can be revised. In this article, the author describes the step-by-step process in order to show what it takes to create a star quality lesson plan for the "S.O.S. for Information Literacy" database.
