Develop a 5-day unit plan that integrates vocabulary, reading, grammar, writing, listening and speaking, and technology, for the “Class Profile” students, choosing either the resource or self-contained learning environment. In a typical resource or self-contained learning environment the teacher would differentiate for every student. For this assignment, choose three students for whom you will differentiate the instruction. Align your unit to a 6-12 grade level ELA standard from the Arizona or another state academic content standards.
Design the unit plan to include:
National/State Learning Standards: Select standards that address reading, writing, speaking, and listening integration skills.
Multiple Means of Representation: Select strategies that allow opportunities to develop oral and written language for students with disabilities. Incorporate individual abilities, interests, learning environments, and cultural and linguistic factors in the section.
Multiple Means of Engagement: Select strategies to enhance language development and communication skills.
Multiple Means of Expression: Use technically sound formal and informal assessment.
Extension Activity and/or Homework: Incorporate activities that include critical thinking and problem-solving.
In the Differentiation rows of the unit plan template focus on the three students you selected.
Part 2: Rationale
In 250-500 words rationale at the bottom of your unit plan, explain the following:
How literacy skills from your lesson plan will be helpful for students in other content areas.
How communication and language arts strategies prepare students and provide them strategies to be successful academically and personally across multiple settings with a variety of collaborators (e.g., individuals, families, and teams).
