 Year Level : First Year Secondary Students Section : Heterogeneous Class No. of Students : 40 Prior knowledge required : Fundamental operation of numbers, Fractions, Decimals Lesson 1: Topic Title: Percent § Teaching Strategy Applied: Glasson’s Learning Cycle To teach this lesson using Glasson’s Learning cycle: exploration, clarification and elaboration. § Exploration The teacher begins exploring students’ view about percent by engaging the students in the following activity: – Students will be divided into heterogeneous and cooperative learning groups of 5. – Each group will be given words such as fraction, decimal, and percent. – Students are required to define each word based on their prior knowledge. – After 10 minutes, one representative from each group will present to the class about their output. § Clarification After the presentation, the teacher will establish the concept about the topic. Then he/she will provide motivating experiences related to the topic. After which a discussion will follow for the students to reevaluate their ideas. Then the teacher will interpret and clarifies students’ views. § Elaboration To elaborate further students’ understanding of the topic, students are again divided into groups (same group in the first activity). They will imagine a restaurant as their setting. Each group will be given a set of menu-for their imaginative meal and paper bills (play money)-as their budget. Each member of the group will have an opportunity to order whatever they desire from the menu. Have the students calculate the bill for
