Select a measurement lesson that you have taught or one that you locate from an online source. Utilize the “Level of Cognitive Demand” professional development Blackline Master from the text, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally (Van de Walle, Karp, & Bay-Williams, 2013) to assess and evaluate the lesson. This Blackline Master resource can be found on pages 36-37 of the text or in the PDToolkit. Address the following in two to three pages.
Give an overview of the lesson.
What elements of the “Levels of Cognitive Demand” are evident in the lesson? Which elements are not evident in the lesson?
Describe your overall evaluation of whether this task/lesson has the potential to engage students in higher-level thinking.
What adaptations would you make to the task or lesson in order to increase the potential for higher-level thinking?
Assignments require Title Page, Running head, Abstract on second page, Level 1 Headings and a Reference List on the last page of the paper.
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research.

Measurement is a very important Mathematical competency and skill, which has a scope that goes above and beyond the world of academics. The skill of measurement has applications which are both simple and complex and can be incorporated in Math instruction a varying levels of cognitive demand. This sample lesson which was extrapolated and critiqued from www.disoveryeducation com (2015) represents a classic example of a lesson in measurement, which is and sure lesson sample consistent with the necessary rigor and challenge for college and career readiness.
Lesson: A Metric World
I found an extremely good lesson from www.dicoveryeducation.com. The lesson integrated every level of cognitive demand, which is by definition what a good Math lesson does, particularly one designed to prepare students for college and career readiness as well as the rigor associated with 21st century standards (Sousa, 2008). The lesson built the student up by...
