Sample Unit Plan: Ecology
Download unit plan: unit 2 plan.doc
The above is a handout I provided for my students as we began the unit on ecology. Although I had intended the handout to be primarily a guide for students, reminding them of what I expected them to become proficient in, I probably ended up referring to it more than they did as I wrote my day-to-day lesson plans. It allowed me to plan backwards more efficiently, with the objectives and observable outcomes of the unit clearly in mind. It reminded me of what vocabulary terms I needed to introduce, and it gave me a roadmap of how to contextualize and interlink the various components of the unit.
