In a separate document:
For this assignment, you will create a unit plan containing three individual lesson plans designed for the students outlined in the “Class Profile.” Choose a grade level for the students, then select an NGSS from the physical, life, or earth/space sciences, as well as a health/nutrition standard from your state, for the 3-lesson unit. You may adapt any previous assignments in the creation of this mini-unit plan, as long as the three lessons form a planned, cohesive unit. Use the 5E lesson plan template for each of the three lesson plans.

In your unit, design the three lesson plans so that they:

Use a variety of teaching strategies and technologies that encourage the students’ development of critical thinking and problem solving.

Use strategies that create opportunities for students’ active engagement in their learning and promote a supportive learning environment.

Incorporate the use of digital resources to promote effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques while creating opportunities for active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the elementary classroom. 

Integrate formative and summative assessment techniques that measure all four DOK levels, and provide students feedback on their learning so that they can make adjustments; and

Use differentiated strategies to meet the needs of all students in the “Class Profile.”

Along with the unit, submit a 250-500 word rationale describing your reasoning for your instructional choices, your use of the 5E model, and how you connected the content to student learning needs.

Rubric: 

1. Lesson plans are complete and form a clear, cohesive unit. They have clear, well-aligned learning targets, activities, and assessments that creatively and comprehensively teach one or more fundamental concepts of physical, life, or earth/space sciences and a state health standard.

2. Lesson plans use a variety of creative, age-appropriate, teaching strategies and technologies that skillfully demonstrate progression of knowledge and encourage elementary students’ development of critical thinking and problem solving.

3. Instructional strategies skillfully create opportunities for students’ active engagement in their learning and promote a supportive learning environment.

4. Digital resources skillfully promote effective verbal, nonverbal, and media communication techniques while creating opportunities for active inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the elementary classroom.

5. Planned formal and informal assessments are well aligned to the stated learning targets and standards. Formative assessments are carefully designed to provide data on student performance for monitoring and adjusting, and provide students feedback so they can evaluate and adjust their own learning. Summative assessment measures all four DOK levels and is cohesive in form and function for the unit.

6. Lesson plans have creative, well-developed differentiated instructional activities, supports and assessments that are clearly designed to meet the needs of specific individuals and/or groups with similar needs, consistent with the Class Profile.

7. Rationale comprehensively summarizes instructional choices, the use of the 5E model, and how the lessons were designed to fully engage students in the content and meet their instructional and motivational needs.
