I need three things:
1. Please write 1 to 2 pages about the literature regarding the taxonomy of psychomotor learning as the specific conceptual framework. 
2. I need the citation for the following statement:
The CTAE secondary teachers during the pandemic needed an understanding of new technologies and instructional methods that were best suited for students. The instructional materials required for all students helped determine the best instructional method used in their courses. 
 
3. I need the citation for this statement also:
The teachers ensure that the students have the necessary ambitions and positive attitudes towards online learning. They encourage active learning among students and ensure all learners are making progress in online learning. Infrastructure expansion is necessary for secondary schools to shift to online learning successfully.

Submit a draft of your scope and sequence for peer review. Descriiption As your

Submit a draft of your scope and sequence for peer review.
Descriiption
As your principal, I am trying to decide whether or not to let you teach your dream class. (Most first year teachers are assigned the classes no one else wants). In order to convince me you deserve this privilege, you need to demonstrate an aligned and cohesive plan. To do this, plot out your course by unit (full or half-year, depending on your subject matter), articulate your global objective and a rationale for your sequencing, and come up with two to three essential questions per unit. I will provide you with a basic template, though you may choose to devise your own. While you work, consider our essential questions: Why am I here? Why my content area? What are Standards and why do we have them? How do I make my Standards matter to my students?
Rationale
Your instruction throughout the year needs to fit within a logical sequence, and your students need to be able to understand each unit as part of a coherent whole, rather than as isolated chunks of information. This assignment, then, will aid you in your progression toward mastering INTASC 7, Instructional Planning.
To be successful on this assignment . . .
Plan for 2-3 units per quarter. (For grading purposes, units need to end when your quarters end).
Give each unit (or chunk) a short, explanatory, catchy title.
Include all of your content area strands and standards, but not your indicators. (strands and standards may be repeated across units because different units target different indicators). You don’t have to teach your content in the order it is presented in the core.
Include at least one Reading or Writing Common Core Literacy Standard or Mathematics Standard in each chunk.
Shoot for 2-3 essential questions per unit—both topical and overarching. Questions may span units.
Submit this assignment with a partner.
If you worked at senior high level in your methods class, work at junior high level in this class, and vice versa.
The template and tips are guidelines only. Certain content areas (e.g. music, fine arts) require more flexibility in planning. Be loyal to your core objectives. The goal here is a cohesive and aligned course.
Standards/Rubric
You will be graded based on the following criteria.
Course Alignment – Global objective is clearly articulated. Overall plan for reaching that objective is cohesive and aligned.
Sequencing – Sequencing rationale is clearly articulated and logical. Each unit (or chunk) has a concise and explanatory title.
Inclusivity – Grade level and course are identified. All core strands and standards are included (everything but indicators!) 2-3 units (or chunks) per quarter are blocked. At least one literacy or math standard is included in each unit.
Transferability – Topical and overarching essential questions accompany each unit and are stated in first person where appropriate. (Questions may span units.)
Professionalism – Overall presentation is neat, including conventional English usage.
