Select one class period from your course syllabus and develop a teaching plan for your chosen class. Following the assignment guidelines below, develop and submit your teaching plan and deliver a mini powerpoint presentation explaining your teaching plan.
Your teaching plan should serve as a road map of what you think students need to learn as well as how you will effectively deliver your instruction and evaluate what the students learned during the class period. Your teaching plan should guide your teaching presentation. While there are many formats for a teaching plan, the following sections should be included in your plan:
The subject or topic that you plan to teach: Your topic should be selected from one of the class periods listed in your syllabus that you developed for an undergraduate nursing course.
Level of instruction: The placement of the course in the nursing program curriculum (i.e., freshman, junior, sophomore, senior; beginning, mid-program, or end-of-program level)
Method/mode of delivering your teaching presentation: Form of audio-visual delivery, PowerPoint presentation, or similar method
Learning objectives: Include 4–5 outcome statements that define what you expect the students to learn or accomplish by the end of the class period. Your learning objectives should be clear and measurable, and appropriate to the information you are teaching, and the level of instruction.
Content outline: Develop an outline of the central points and/or skills you plan to cover. Your content should be logically structured.
Teaching strategies and learning activities: List the approach, techniques, and methods you will use to drive your instruction and engage your students to reach the learning objectives (e.g., lecture, active learning, discussions). Provide a rationale supporting your selected teaching strategies, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
Plans for individual learning differences: How you plan to adapt your teaching to meet individual learning needs of various students. Explain how individuals with different learning styles will be supported by your teaching strategies and activities.
Evaluation process: List the methods you plan to use to assess student learning and evaluate the effectiveness of your teaching strategies (how you will determine if students met the outcome objectives).
Include formative (questioning, discussion, games, etc.) and summative (assignment, test, presentation, etc.) evaluation strategies.
Include at least one written assignment and develop a rubric that clearly describes your expectations for the assignment. Your rubric should:
List the criteria that will be assessed (a breakdown of the assignment parts).
Include some type of scale that measures the levels of quality for the criteria being assessed (e.g., from excellent to poor, from exceeds expectations to does not meet expectations.

Teaching plan and mini powerpoint presentation
For this teaching plan, the subject or topic that will be taught is “Cardiovascular System Disorders” in an undergraduate nursing course. The level of instruction is at the junior level in the nursing program curriculum. The teaching presentation will be delivered through a PowerPoint presentation, utilizing audio-visual aids to enhance learning. The goal is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of various cardiovascular disorders, their pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and management strategies.
1. Define and explain the pathophysiology of common cardiovascular disorders.
2. Recognize and identify clinical manifestations associated with different cardiovascular disorders.
3. Analyze and apply evidence-based management strategies for cardiovascular disorders.
4. Critically evaluate the impact of lifestyle modifications and pharmacological interventions on cardiovascular health.
1. Introduction to Cardiovascular System Disorders
a. Overview of the cardiovascular system and its function
b. Common risk factors for cardiovascular disorders
2. Pathophysiology of Cardiovascular Disorders
a. Atherosclerosis and its role in cardiovascular diseases
b. Hypertension and its impact on cardiac health
c. Coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction
d. Heart failure and cardiomyopathies
e. Arrhythmias and conduction disorders
3. Clinical Manifestations and Assessment
a. Signs and symptoms associated with cardiovascular disorders
b. Use of diagnostic tests and imaging modalities for assessment
4. Management Strategies for Cardiovascular Disorders
a. Lifestyle modifications (exercise, diet, smoking cessation)
b. Pharmacological interventions and their mechanisms of action
c. Surgical interventions (angioplasty, bypass surgeries)
Teaching Strategies and Learning Activities:
1. Lecture: Provide a comprehensive overview of each cardiovascular disorder, its pathophysiology, and clinical manifestations.
2. Case studies: Engage students in analyzing patient scenarios to apply the knowledge learned and develop critical thinking skills.
3. Class discussions: Encourage students to share their perspectives and experiences related to cardiovascular health and care.
Plans for Individual Learning Differences:
To accommodate different learning styles, various teaching strategies will be implemented. Visual learners will benefit from the PowerPoint presentations and diagrams. Auditory learners will benefit from clear explanations and verbal reinforcement. Kinesthetic learners will be engaged through case studies and hands-on activities during class discussions. Additionally, individual learning needs will be identified through formative assessments and personal discussions, allowing for personalized support and modifications in teaching approaches.
1. Formative evaluation:
a. Questioning and discussions during class to assess understanding and clarify concepts.
b. Patient case studies for application and critical thinking assessment.
2. Summative evaluation:
a. Written assignment: Students will be assigned a case study related to a cardiovascular disorder. They will be required to analyze the given patient scenario, identify appropriate management strategies, and provide evidence-based rationale. A rubric will be used to assess the assignment, evaluating criteria such as accuracy, critical thinking, and organization.
b. Test: A comprehensive written test will assess students’ knowledge of cardiovascular system disorders, including pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and management strategies.
This teaching plan aims to provide a structured and engaging learning experience for undergraduate nursing students. It incorporates a variety of teaching strategies to cater to different learning styles and emphasizes the application of knowledge through case studies and discussions. The evaluation process includes both formative and summative assessments, ensuring that students’ understanding and mastery of the subject are adequately assessed.
