Unit   Content Areas
 Math,   Social Studies, and Science
   These 3 content areas are integrated into one
    thematic unit, presented here
 Language   Arts was taught by another
  teacher
   Elements    of the unit were integrated with the
    unit (also posted on website) by Lindsey Cecala
                          Language
The   Language Proficiency levels for my students:
 3    students on Level 6
        They  can communicate with people that they don’t know and
         both parties are able to comprehend each other, with some
         clarifying.
 2    students on Level 5
        They are generally understood but more clarification is
         needed by both parties in order to comprehend all details.
 1   student on Level 4
        Strangers   would had a hard time communicating with this
         student and familiar adults have to ask for clarification
         frequently.
 1   student on Level 3
        This   student is hard to understand by most people
          -leaves out a lot of details
          -other person has to figure    out what the student is trying to say.
                         Math
   3rd and 4th grade skills
    Students    can do two-digit addition
      Most of the time they remember to carry, if
       needed
    Students    can do two-digit subtraction
      They   forget to borrow most of the time
    Students   are just now learning
     multiplication
      They   know the 0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 11 facts
    The   biggest problem is retention
      Students   forget many things they have learned
       if they stop using these skills for awhile.
    They   also struggle with money
                  Social Studies
3rd   and 4th grade
 Students   need maps to help them locate places and
  need timelines to place events over time
 The biggest instructional challenge is the students’
  difficulty in answering questions
    They   “give up” when asked to read and answer questions by
       themselves.
        They   often cry or immediately sign/say “I don’t know.”
    They    are much more successful when worksheets or
       questions are signed to them.
 They   really enjoy social studies once they realize
   that they can do the work!
    They   need a lot of prompting to get them going.
 They    do really well on map work
                       Science
3rd   grade
 Class    is mainstreamed
   I    go with them to help teach
 Challenges:
   Vocabulary is very hard for these students.
   Questions that they must read and answer own
       their own:
        They   “give up” when they see a questions with lines for
          the answer.
   Not     paying attention to the interpreter
        They   miss the content knowledge and information that
          they need.
 Skills:
   They     excel in hands-on work
                       Science
4th   grade
 They    are mainstreamed with only an interpreter
    They take tests in my room
    I help with their homework when time allows
    I work with them every Friday to review and     do tests
 2    out of the 3 do really well
    They    only need help when language is challenging so I
       interpret questions for them
 1    student wants to be told the answers
    Needs    a lot of prompting to complete the worksheets
       and tests
 Vocabulary   is the biggest challenge for the
   students in this class, too.
         Unit Design Stage 1
       Identify Desired Results
                     Unit Goals
Developed by combining standards and student needs
 1) Students will explain and discuss different jobs they
 would like and not like to do in the future.
 2) Students will design a chart/graph and interpret
 meaning from the chart/graph
 3) Students will explain how outside factors affect the
 local job market.
 4) Students will keep their own records and
 observations, and be able to explain why it is important
 to keep records.
    Stage 1: Overarching Questions
        & Unit Understandings
What essential questions        What students under-
will be explored?               standings are desired?

What influences the job         Several things can influence

 What key knowledge and skills will
  students acquire from this unit?
Students    will know:
  That   there are many different jobs/careers in the
   world
  That not everyone likes the same jobs as another
   person, and that is okay
  That each job has different requirements
  How to read and make a graph (about jobs)
Students    will be able to:
  Explain what jobs they like and don’t like
  Keep accurate records
  Make good personal decisions about purchases
  Design and pass out a survey about job interests,   and
   interpret the results
