Brain-based instructional plan | Education homework help


        Week 6 – Final Project       


Brain-Based Instructional Plan

In this final project, you will apply specific brain research-based  strategies to a content- and age/grade-specific instructional plan of  your own design. You will then reflect on how the selected strategies  support learner engagement, motivation, and success.

This Final Project synthesizes learning into an  original, brain research-based instructional plan. There are two parts  to this assignment: Part One: Instructional Plan and Part Two:  Reflection.

Jensen purports that “brain-based lesson planning does not follow a  template—mainly because the basic premise of brain-based learning is  that every brain is unique, so a one-size-fits-all approach does not  work” (2014, p.214). However, your learning is still developing and for  the purpose of this Final Project, an instructional plan template  utilizing the seven stages of brain-based planning derived from  Jensen’s work will be utilized to construct your plan. Keep in mind this  is a SINGLE lesson, not an entire unit of instruction.


Content Instructions
Part I: Instructional Plan (The provided template must be used). 

  • Template: Plan must be structured using the provided easy-to-read template. Plan should not be in essay format.
  • Lesson Overview: Include the subject, age/grade level (e.g., P-12,  post-secondary, adults, etc.) and duration of lesson. Lesson should be  between 30 and no more than 90 minutes in length.
  • Standard(s): For P-12th grades, include the content specific  standard from your state or the Common Core. For adult learners, include  organizational or professional standards or program-specific standards.
  • Objective(s): Include no more than two specific, measurable, student-centered objectives that align with your standard(s).
  • Learning Stages: Label each of the seven stages of brain-based  planning. Include the equivalent stages of Gradual Release of  Responsibility (GRR) as a cross-reference (i.e., Stage 2: Preparation  /Anticipatory Set). All stages of GRR should be represented within the  seven brain-based stages.
  • Lesson Examples/Illustrations: Describe specific instruction,  modeling, learner activities, and assessments that correspond with each  learning stage.

Part II: Reflection (Added to the bottom of the template following Part 1). 

  • Share what critical questions you asked yourself as you planned learning with the brain in mind.
  • Describe how brain research-based strategies support teaching, learning, and quality curriculum and instructional design.
  • Discuss what elements of your instructional plan serve as a means of motivation for learners.
  • Discuss ways are learners engaged in their learning as opposed to passively participating.
  • Describe how the learning environment supports brain research-based  learning that is non-threatening, structured, but respectful of each  learner’s unique nature, needs, and experiences.

Written Communication Instructions

  • Length Requirement: Three to four pages not including the title and references pages.
  • Syntax and Mechanics: Display meticulous comprehension and organization of syntax and mechanics, such as spelling and grammar.
  • Source Requirement: Utilize at least two scholarly resources and the  Jensen (2008) textbook. All sources on the references page need to be  used and cited correctly within the body of the assignment.
  • APA Formatting: Use APA formatting consistently throughout the assignment. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.) for assistance with APA style and formatting.

Submitting Your Assignment

  • Once uploaded, add a title (eg: Brain-based Instructional Plan) and 1-2 sentence description. 
    • Select “Education” as the cateogry and give it the same title as the previous step.
