Comprehension Instructional Sequence Model (CIS) Lesson Plans


Bringing Together Industry Tour & STEM/Manufacturing Careers


FLATE has developed some curriculum tools to help student to prepare and succeed in Hi-tech careers with new ways to tailor instruction. This curriculum has being conceived by bringing together industry tour and STEM areas in a four day lesson plan to build learners’ background knowledge in STEM areas, expand their vocabularies, and to promote reading and writing success. 

Curriculum is aligned with common core/FL standards using the Comprehension Instructional Sequence Model - CIS. This model uses a multiple-strategy instruction that promotes student development in reading comprehension, vocabulary, content-area knowledge, and critical thinking about complex texts.

 There are 8 lesson plans with focus on different processes/aspects of manufacturing. Each lesson includes activities for 4 day (50 minute) lesson plan on:    

Assembly, Automation, Electronics Assembly, Materials Selection, Product Design, Quality Measures: Metrology, Subtractive Machining and Fabrication: Welding.

  • Day 1 and 2-Reading and research; students will focus on reading and research about the manufacturing process topic, learn new technical vocabulary and research of company to be toured.
  • Day 3-Industry tour day; students will experience a real manufacturing world by touring a Florida manufacturing industry, taking notes and categorizing observations based on previous reading/search.
  • Day 4-Discussion/essay writing: students are encouraged to use critical thinking to write an essay that uses evidence from previous research (day 1 and 2) and observations they make while on the company tour (day 3).  The essay will be graded for accuracy, punctuation, spelling and format.
