Unit lesson planning 101

Unit/Lesson Planning 101


What is a unit plan

What is a unit plan?

  • A series of lessons generally related to a theme or having a common thread.


What is a lesson plan

What is a lesson plan?

  • An outline or guide to help the teacher structure the learning experience.


Developing a unit and lesson plans

Developing a unit and lesson plans

  • Start with the goals or objectives – what do you want the students to learn?

  • In North Carolina the Standard Course of Study (NC SCOS)specifies the goals and objectives for each grade and subject.

    • Visit LEARNNC for the NC SCOS

    • http://www.learnnc.org/


Developing a unit and lesson plans1

Developing a unit and lesson plans

  • Next outline the activities you will use

  • Consider the following as you are writing your activities

    • What do students already know?

    • How long do I have for the lesson?

    • What approach(es) might be best to use e.g. will students work alone, in groups, whole class?


Developing a unit and lesson plans2

Developing a unit and lesson plans

  • Determine/find resources you can use to teach the lesson.

  • Decide how you will assess the student’s learning – did the students learn what you wanted them to learn?

    • Formal (e.g. a test, a product)

    • Informal (e.g. discussion with students)

    • Link to a presentation on assessment

      • Note – this was a workshop I presented at the Florida Educational Technology Conference. You may find some of the information helpful.
