Unit plans are developed with a different lens than that of a lesson plan. A unit plan is an overview of what, why, how, and when content is to be covered, while ensuring students with exceptionalities and students learning English as a second language are considered.
Using the “Social Studies and ELA Integrated Five-Day Unit Plan,” design a five-day unit based on your field experience class that integrates ELA and social studies standards, and incorporates students interacting with technology. Integrate at least two social studies standards, one reading standard, one writing standard, and one speaking and listening standard from your state’s standards into your unit plan.
In the Differentiation section of the unit plan, identify support strategies forstudents with exceptionalities or students who are learning English as a second language. Strategies should be based on the students in your field experience classroom who are receiving special education or ESL services. For clarification, explain the delays or disabilities on the plan. (Please do not use children’s real names to protect confidentiality.)
Write a 50-100 word response to each question in the Reflection section of the Unit Plan template.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
