Teachers need to consider both long-term planning and short-term planning. For this assignment you will be doing long-term planning. You will create a four-week New York State Next Generation Standards map for ELA for the grade level of your choice (K-6). You should select a topic that is from a grade-appropriate content area on which to base your map.
Your map needs to include: (you should use the checklist in the Week 9 resources as a guide):
-Topic and explain why you chose this topic – indicate what part of grade level common core curriculum or school curriculum it enhances, how the unit helps students meet the New York State Next Generation Standards
-Focus Standards – the New York State Next Generation Standards on which this lesson is based. You must include at least one standard for each of the following areas: Reading-Literature, Reading-Informational Text, Reading – Foundational Skills (K-5), Writing, Speaking, Listening, Language. Write out standards by number and words.
-Skills/Strategies to be taught – List 2 skills or strategies that will be explicitly taught during this unit
-Selected Vocabulary – 5 Tier Three vocabulary words that will be explicitly taught during this unit
-Sample Lesson Activities That Focus on New York State Next Generation State Standards and That Reflect Available Resources – 5 activities with a brief description of what students will do to show they are meeting the Focus Standards. One must focus on comprehension. Two must be tied to the skills/strategies indicated above. The other two activities can be any activities appropriate for the unit. Two of the 5 activities must also indicate how you will accommodate for diverse learners (each of the 2 activities must accommodate for different needs).
-Possible Assessments – indicate two assessment ideas (formative or summative) that could be used as a part of the lesson activities or skill/strategy instruction from above. You may select pre-assessment, during teaching assessment, or post-assessment. For each assessment indicate what the assessment is designed to measure.
-Selected Works – You need 2 for each area, – Literary Texts, Informational Texts, and Reference Materials (can be any medium). The works you choose must be grade appropriate. Indicate what focus standard(s) will be met by each work.
