Our task was to plan for a 20-day unit that will make use of the specific classroom techniques we are discussing in class and of the theory behind those ideas.
Below is an outline for what your unit plan should include:
1. Cover/Title Page
Include the title of the unit, theme or concept, the grade level, and your name.
2. Unit Justification
This should be a short (two to three page) introduction in which you introduce your reader to the amount of time the unit will take (number of days), the topics covered, and some general idea of your philosophy underlying the unit. This is the place where you will outline your reasons for doing what you’re doing, your underlying philosophy for doing it, and the connections that your unit plan has to the wider world. Include any logistical information that would assist another teacher with the implementation of this unit.
This piece must use APA citations and include a works cited page; it is an academic piece.
3. One-Week Worth of Lesson Plans and Materials for Each Day
Using any lesson plan format you’re comfortable with, plan each day of your unit for a week. After each lesson plan, include materials that you plan to use that day. You are only asked for a week’s worth of lesson plans from your unit because things don’t usually go as planned and you’ll need to adjust accordingly. If you want, you may plan for more, but you don’t have to for this assignment
Include all of the materials that you plan to use over the course of your unit. This will include all assignment sheets, potential handouts, and information sheets. Bibliography - Include a reference list of resources used throughout the unit.
