ECE 335 week 5 Assignment

  

Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Final Project

 

Unit Plan
 

As we have learned over the last five weeks, using literature in the classroom is a powerful tool for helping to meet your students’ developmental needs.  For your Final Project, you will build upon the lesson that you created in Week Two of this course and develop it into a week-long unit.  Your unit will need to include the following components:

  1. A paragraph introducing your      theme or concept for the entire week. 
  2. A rationale for your unit that      clearly describes the stage of development the students you will be      teaching are in.  
  3. A paragraph describing the work      of a theorist whose beliefs help to support the use of this unit within      this stage of development.  
  4. Create five different lesson      plans that relate to the chosen theme/concept of your unit.  One of      these lessons should come from the Story Element Lesson Plan you created      in Week Two. 
  5. Explain how the objectives for      your lessons measure concepts discussed in class (phonemic awareness,      alphabetic principle, character, setting, plot, theme, etc.).  
  6. Identify and discuss a      different genre of literature for each lesson plan (poetry, nursery      rhymes, tactile books multicultural books, picture books, non-fiction      books, series books, etc.). Feel free to use some of the literature you      included in your weekly discussions if they are appropriate to your theme and      stage of development.  
  7. Create a plan for how you will      share the literature that you are using with your students’ families so      they can help to support literacy acquisition. You could create a      newsletter, plan a family literacy night, or even choose some ideas from      the Parent Literacy Presentation you created in Week Three.  
  8. At least one scholarly source      in addition to your textbook. 

You will submit your unit as an eight- to ten-page word document, not including the title and reference page.  Make sure you properly format your Final Project according the APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
