    Idaho Coaching Network Unit Plan Template

    Unit Title: Perspective: Whos Our Hero? Created By: Sierra May Subject: Literacy Grade: 4th Estimated Length (days or weeks): About 21 school days Unit Overview:

    The Unit is designed to fit later into the year after students have had ample opportunities to practice writing. Students will be expected to be familiar with the writing process. The Unit will explicitly teach how to cite evidence while writing an explanatory paragraph, but not explicitly teach how to

    use transitions, or other components required in an explanatory paragraph. Students will need access to a journal for some assignments. An online google classroom format would be easy to use instead of a handwritten journal, this may be an accommodation for those who struggle with handwriting.

    The Unit has been designed to take place in a four-day school week, so the class lengths are longer. This is optional and can be easily adapted into shorter periods of time. This would require adding extra days to cover the material thoroughly.

    Students will need a folder or binder to collect all their reflection sheets and the articles read in class. The summative project will require students to synthesize information from the multiple texts theyve received in class.

    The Unit has been designed with the use of Plickers. This is a technology component that is meant to bring active involvement and engagement. The teacher will need to have access to this free website and app either on a phone or iPad for use by the teacher only. Only one device is needed. Students will need cards that are previously printed and laminated. This is an optional component to the Unit and can be easily converted to a paper/pencil quiz if the teacher prefers. The teacher will add the questions posed in the Unit into the free website, then display them on the board. With training, students will display their answer on their personal Plicker sheet, and then the teacher will use a cellphone or iPad with the downloaded app, to scan (similar to video) the students answer. The app records their answer, then displays a bar graph on the screen representing their choices. Its a great tool for discussing different opinions.

    The unit is designed to be an introduction or expansion of Greek Mythology (aligned with 4th grade curriculum), Native American lore (also aligned with Idaho 4th grade curriculum), pop media, and current events. The Unit focuses on stories and myths from history to deepen their understanding about the hero that is often referred to in literature and current media.

    Students may need access to technology, as one of the optional final assessment projects is a Google Slide Presentation. Students will need to have prior experience working with Google Slides, as it is not taught within the Unit. If technology is not available, there are other options that dont require it.

    All materials are in Google Doc form and can be easily copied into a Google Classroom to allow for accommodating students writing abilities/needs. Some classrooms might prefer to submit all the work through Google Classroom rather than in printed/written form.

    Unit Rationale: Key Shift #2: Students will participate in Reading/Writing/Speaking that is grounded in evidence from the text, across the curriculum. It is important for students to understand how to convey information gathered from various sources and present it in a clear way through technology

    and speaking. The Unit is developed for fourth grade students who are becoming more interested and engaged in the news and world around them. Society today shows so many various perspectives in the news, and its important for students to know how to sift through those perspectives and absorb information, then process it independently. The purpose of the Unit is for students to form their own ideas and opinions about todays and past heroes. Because the Unit goes into deep levels of discussion about somewhat controversial subjects, there are a lot of discussion activities and modeling within the Unit to accommodate for more students. For each new task, there is an I-Do, We-Do, You-Do model that allows for gradual release of responsibility from the teacher to the students. Essential Question(s) (Modules 2 and 3):

    How is the hero defined as a hero? How does point of view change the hero?

    Enduring Understandings (Modules 2 and 3): Students will be able to understand a situation from a

    different point of view and determine their own valid understanding of the experience or situation. They will construct justifiable arguments with effective, valid evidence.
