COGNITION LESSON PLAN

This page is a free-shared lesson plan archive for teaching all educational subjects within the context and theme of “Cognition”. It is purposed for use in community education environments, homeschool environments, traditional schooling environments, or as a supplemental and fun addition to any education program. As part of the complete Education for Life Program, this lesson plan is specifically designed to work in conjunction with the other components: Foundations of Teaching, Curriculum, Teaching Strategies, Learning Tools and Toys, Evaluation Model, and The Ultimate Classroom. If you’d like to learn how all these components work together, click hereClick here for the specifics focused on just using the lesson plans:

A NOTE ABOUT ALL ONE COMMUNITY LESSON PLANS

The One Community lesson plans are intentionally designed for use in ANY educational environment and with ALL educational, cultural, religious/spiritual, and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning. They are designed without an ideological approach and specifically so they can be adapted to include the views, preferences, methodologies, and/or ideologies preferred by different parents and teachers.

For maximum flexibility and adaptation, they are also designed to be combined to teach multiple subjects at the same time. Doing this increases the creativity, effectiveness, and fun of your learning environment. Once we are on the property and operating our version of the complete school and Education for Life program, we will be adding video examples of how to combine the lessons. In the meantime, visit the Teaching Strategies page for a list of suggestions.

TEACHING ARTS AND TRADES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF COGNITION

The Arts

  • Design and create a picture* that shows what cognition means to you.
  • Tell a story* about how you perceive and/or your perception of thinking and learning.
  • Read 5 poems about learning or that are intended to be lessons. After studying the poems, write your own poem* and discuss with someone what perceptions you took from the poems you read and how you incorporated those thoughts into your poem.
  • Use clay to sculpt* 2 pieces each reflecting a different perception of the same real life object.
  • Create a mosaic* that reflects your cognition of something important to you.
  • Choose an indigo art bullet from the molecule and design, develop, and complete a high quality/complex art piece* that is centered and themed around the cognitive processes involved in creating art. Write a reflective analysis on how your cognition influenced your decisions in this process.
  • Focus on using your cognition to create an art piece, dance, song, etc.* that is open to different interpretations and will be perceived differently by diverse audiences. Open source your process for creating this, including reports by at least 10 individuals on their perception of what the art you created represents.
Trades

  • Demonstrate your cognitive understanding of basic life skills by taking clothes (like outside jackets/sweaters and shoes that have zippers, buttons, and laces) on and off* of a doll or yourself without assistance.
  • Create a list of the materials necessary in papermaking. With the help of an expert, discuss your perceived ideas on the process, and then make paper* with the expert. Discuss what was different and what was the same between your understanding of the process before and after doing it.
  • Choose 4 trades from the yellow section of the molecule and interview specialists in these areas, asking them about what they enjoy and what they would list as a negative about their fields, and to what extent their perception of the field now differs from when they were in school learning about it. Cognitively evaluate the aspects you find positive and negative in each trade and write a short paper* about all of this.
  • Write down your current cognitive understanding of a trade of your choice from the green section of the molecule. Read 5 books/articles/real life stories relating to that trade and write an analysis* of the differences in your cognition before and after the reading. Evaluate each trade cognitively and write a 5 page paper* comparing the trades.
  • Choose a trade in the blue section of the molecule and find a way to intern in this field. Keep a reflective journal* of your perceptions and experiences of the field before, during, and after the internship. Share your journal with the expert you interned under and create an open source version to share your perceptions with the world.
  • Research the relationship between cognition and jobs. Present your results in a 15 minute youtube video talk*.
  • Publish a well researched article* about how cognition plays a role in your success in a trade of your choice.

Any one of these suggestions could be replaced with a written paper, any form of art project (drawing, painting, music, paper mache, clay, wood, knitting/embroidery, metals, etc. etc.), an experiment, a presentation, a mindmap, a computer program, a web design project, a piece of poetry or a song, an interpretive dance or play, a group project, or anything else. What we feel is most important is that both the Learner and the Teacher agree on an exercise/activity they both feel would be maximally engaging, fun, and effective.
