Justice, Inquiry, & Action Justice Unit Plan
This unit plan should be designed around a specific literary work (novel, play, several short stories, collection of poems, or other genre) that serves as an anchor text in a thematic unit appropriate to secondary teaching. The unit plan should demonstrate your understanding of a justice, inquiry, and action approach to teaching literature.
Identify the anticipated grade level and course in which you would teach this unit. Your unit should be between 3-6 weeks in length.
Your unit plan will be presented in class in a 5 minute Google Slide Presentation. Your slides shouldneeds to include:
1) A description of your unit will address issues of justice.
2) A clear indication of how your students will engage in inquiry.
3) How does the unit lead to students taking action to address the issue?
4) Describe the grade level and social/cultural background of your students and explain how the age and background of your students factors into the content and methods of the unit. Describe also how you will address a diversity of reading abilities in your class, and how you would support ELL students.
5) An overview or "syllabus" of the sequence of lessons and activities that will comprise your unit.
6) Developed idea for a specific lesson or activity
7) Include a description of a final paper or project or cumulative activity that students will write/engage in and an explanation of this activity addresses the learning goals you established.
Teachers borrow other teachers work. However, as a future teacher completing a course assignment, you need to be careful about citation and plagiarism. For this assignment I expect to see your own work and thinking consistent with what we are learning in this class. If you do borrow, modify, or use any ideas, bits, or pieces from others cite your sources; in an online document your citiation should include a link to the sources, if possible.
