Section 3A review of the specific learning objectives covered by the entire unit

Section 4The unit map showing the main unit theme and the lessons related to the central theme and to each other.
The unit schedule: A description of the Unit Duration (not actual dates but rather a schedule of days)
The course map: The context of that unit (a course map of all units for that grade/ subject combination and a demonstration of where that unit is) as related to the overall course.
Section 5An overview of the learning activities to be included in the unit (including the lessons that have been detailed).
A list of all resources and materials to be used (and which lessons these resources will be used for).

Terms and Expectations ExplainedThe following elements are some guiding notes to help clarify the above sections:Subject: The subject of this unit will be chosen by the candidate.Key Critical Concepts: The concepts should arise and permeate throughout the unit (like democracy, freedom, and environmental influence). These should be explored through the unit and instruction.Launching Activity: This should be an attention-grabbing activity. The best of these are those that help to see the real-life relevancy of the lesson/ unit.Assessments: The unit should have a diagnostic assessment (for the beginning of the unit), formative assessments (formal or informal) and a summative assessment. These do not have to be classical paper-pencil but can be. Be creative AND appropriate.Course Map and Unit Map: The maps both demonstrate context (where the unit lies in a course and where the lessons lie in the unit). This forces collaborators to know where you are going and what is necessary before exploring particular topics.Unit Schedule: This schedule should give day counts, not a specific schedule (i.e. not attached to dates). It is best to show this in a table with topics of instruction, unique activities, and assessments.Resource Expectations: You should use a mixture of resources, including: technology where appropriate and possible, texts and hands-on activities.Lessons: The lessons should be connected by the unit and should build towards the accomplishment of the actual unit.EXAMPLE ATTACHED!!!!!!!!!!
