BOPPPS Lesson Plan
Course: Principles of Financial Accounting, 2401
Lesson Title: Accounting Fundamentals
Chat with the students as they arrive. After everybody is seated, ask 'how much do you think you are worth?'
Call two students by name to answer the question. Allow several minutes for discussion and response, clarify the question and
say 'How much is your worth financially, your equity?'. This is what we are going to learn today. The Word of the Day is 'Equity'.
Use CAT technique Making Aims Clear by distributing lesson outcome and objectives to the students. Use Interactive technique
distributing empty outlines. Tell them I am available to talk after class or via email.
Estimated time: 10 minutes
Identify, capture and classify transactions and events that affect business organizations as
assets, liabilities and equities and combine them in the accounting equation
Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, students will be able to:
1. Define and identify Assets, Liabilities and Equities of an organization. Bloom's Knowledge
2. Demonstrate their understanding of the basic Accounting Equation. Bloom's Comprehension
List three to five main topics of the lesson, using a scale of 1 to 5, then ask the students to indicate how familiar
they are with each topic.
This idea is from McKeachie's Teaching Tips.
Estimated time: 10 minutes
What is the basic accounting equation? - Knowledge
What is the difference between assets and liabilities? - Comprehension
How do you test your financial position? - Synthesis
How can you improve your financial position? - Evaluation

Use CAT techniques Tell Your Neighbor and Bouncing to assess student learning.
Create quizzes in Socrative assessment tool.
Prepare a quiz after each lesson and allow students to collaborate and talk to each other to solve the quiz.
Estimated time: 10 minutes, more time for homework and formal tests
Call a student by name and ask what is the Word of the Day.
Review again the lesson outcome and objectives. Ask the discussion questions: What is the basic accounting equation?,
What is the difference between assets and liabilities? How do you determine your financial position?
Use interactive techniques Make it Personal and Think Break, to instill higher level thinking, ask one student how she can
improve her financial position. Allow a few minutes for reflection, then use Tell your Neighbor and Bouncing if necessary.
Remind them that they can talk to me after class or via email.
Estimated time: 10 minutes
Classroom Assessment Techniques, CAT
Word of the Day: Select an important term of the lesson and highlight it throughout the class session, working it into as
many examples as possible.
Make It Personal: Relate the lesson contents to the real lives of the individual students.
Empty Outlines: Distribute a partially completed outline of the lecture and ask students to fill it in.
Making Aims Clear: I will distribute lesson objectives at the beginning of the lesson. Talk to the students about what they are
studying. Then I will use Tell Your Neighbor and Bouncing periodically during the lesson and at the end when the lesson is finished.
Tell Your Neighbor: After each segment of the lesson is taught, I will ask a question from a student and ask the student to share his
thoughts with his neighbor, then tell their response to the class. At this time, I can continue teaching or use Bouncing.
Bouncing: I can bounce student answers around the class to build understanding. That Is done by calling students by name and
asking them what they think of the other students answer.
I think I will be able to increase my students learning by adopting these techniques. Making Aims Clear would improve students
understanding of the course content. Tell Your Neighbor allows me to recognize students learning or lack of understanding.
Bouncing would show my interest and caring, also increase student learning and participation.
1. What would be the effect on the accounting equation if a company receives $10,400 from
the owner to establish a proprietorship? Evaluation

Rubric for a Financial Accounting Course
The purpose of this rubric is to assess student learning through identifying, accumulating, analyzing data and reporting on
financial information about the performance, financial position, cash flows of a business. Give students feedback on identifying
business transactions, preparing and recording journal entries, and preparing financial statements which include cash flow,
income statement, balance sheet, and statement of retained earnings by following Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
Also, student learning about Cash, Accounts Receivable, Inventory, Prepaid, Long Term Assets, Depreciation, Accounts Payable,
Accrued Expenses, Unearned Revenue, Long Term Payables.

I believe the quality of education depends, to a large extent, on the quality of teachers involved
in its development and delivery. I am new to the teaching profession. I started teaching for the
first time in January of 2015. I have over 35 years of accounting experience but no teaching
expertise except training employees. I wanted to develop myself. That is the reason I took this
This class introduced me for the first time to the teaching concepts BOPPPS lesson plan,
Bloom’s Taxonomy, and Rubrics. Designing a lesson by paying attention to its smaller pieces
Bridge, Objectives, Pre-assessment, Participatory lesson, Post-assessment, Summary places
more focus on student learning. Bloom’s Taxonomy encourages us to ask the type of questions
that could make the students think critically.
The book, McKeachie’s Teaching Tips and the other resources recommended by Professor Gail
Marxhausen were full of great teaching ideas and recommendations. I found that I could
incorporate the following ideas, tools and methods in my classes: Word of the day, Reading
assignments in advance with built-in grading structure, use of interactive and CAT techniques
such as Tell your neighbor, Bouncing, Distribution of empty outlines for note taking, Distribution
of lesson objectives, Socrative software for quiz creation, Pre-assessment technique of listing
the main lesson topics on the board, and preparation of questions according to Bloom’s
Taxonomy for deeper student learning.
I have already made some changes and am using the following techniques in my spring 2016
- Students receive 4 points by reading the lesson before coming to class
- Students receive 4 points for a short quiz after each lesson and are allowed to
collaborate and solve the quiz together. This change has increased student interaction
I am glad I found the opportunity to take this ACP class. I will be definitely a more effective
instructor by including the concepts I have learned at the ACP in my classes. It is my intention
to include some of the concepts and tools I have learned here in every lesson I teach in the
future. This commitment can be seen in the approach I have already taken to the lab
assignment I give the students after each lesson this semester.
I am very much interested in learning and have attended quite a few seminars at LSC-Cyfair
since my employment last year in January of 2015. I believe having seminars with public
experts would be much more effective. This can be done with videos if is cost prohibitive to
have the speaker present in person. I am also interested to see seminars geared directly for a
particular division field.
