									                                   Guidelines to Develop Unit Plans
You will teach mini units in Math and Science. In addition you will teach two lessons of Social Studies during the
semester. The Science Unit will be used for completing the Teacher Work Sample (TWS) developed by the
Renaissance Partnership for Improving Teacher Quality. You, with the assistance of your cooperating teacher,
will decide on an appropriate topic for mathematics, science, and social studies lessons, major objectives and/or
skills to be taught, and appropriate activities.

The Unit Plan for Math will contain at least 4 lessons whereas the Science Unit Plan will contain at least 5 lessons
excluding the post assessment. The Social Studies lessons can be taught anytime during the field experience. Use
a word processor to develop your rough draft and final copy. Ideas for the units of study may be obtained from
texts, the internet, the IM Center in Kent Library, and/or the cooperating teachers in the schools. The format of
each lesson is open to discussion; however, you can select any format. You will also write reflections every day
following your teaching. The format for these reflections is available on the web.
The Science unit will be taught second and will be used to complete the TWS document. Samples of the Teacher
Work Sample can be found at http://cstl-coe.semo.edu/khalid . Once you are at the site, under the “Course
Material” click on the “New TWS Document” to see an example of TWS. There are two other examples of the
TWS on that page.
Note: You will submit 4 or 5 lessons for math, and 5 lessons for the TWS unit, the science unit.
Each Unit will contain the following parts:
Title Page will contain:
Title of Unit                            Name of School
Name of Cooperating Teacher              Grade Level
Author’s name

Unit Overview: You will include a one page overview with both units describing briefly what topics will be
discussed in class each day.
At the end of each unit, provide the following:
National or State or Local Standards (use GLEs) met in the Unit.
Explanation of specific requirements identified on each Unit Rubric.
Each Daily Lesson Plan will contain the following parts:
Lesson Objectives with alignment to National, State or Local Standards, (use GLEs) (if not given at the end for
the whole unit)


Instructional Processes: Include the material, procedure/sequence of the lesson etc. These can be embedded in
any lesson format you prefer to use.


Assessment tools/Techniques used in the lesson. Include verbal questions that you will ask your students in class
to assess your students.

Technology used. You may not use technology in all lessons; however, you should offer ideas of what you would
use if technology were available. Include this information in each lesson.

References: Give people/sources credit for their work and ideas. Use APA format. Include the references at the
end of the unit only.
Reflections: Daily Reflections (All units and lessons): You will complete daily reflections about your teaching.
Use format for reflections available on the web.
                     Block III - Mathematics (At least 4 lessons)
   Score yourself and include the rubric when you submit the final draft of the unit.
