Developing a unit plan provides structure and outlines the standards, objectives, lessons, materials, and assessments. It is especially helpful when planning cross-curricular units. Creating effective unit plans requires consideration of standards alignment, assessment strategies, instructional methods, and student needs. Thoughtful planning of resources, materials, and technology is important to supplement the learning and promote engagement, as well as helping students to make real-world connections.
Choose a grade level and at least one science and one health state or national standard from that grade to develop a unit plan for an inclusive classroom. Using the “3 Day Unit Plan Template” located in the Student Success Center, create a cross-curricular 3-day unit that conveys the nature of science for the practice of skills that contribute to good health. The unit plan should use multiple representations and explanations that capture key ideas in the discipline, guide student through learning progressions, and promote each student’s achievement of content standards. Include ample resources, materials, and supplementary technology to support accessibility, learning, and engagement for all students. Prepare opportunities throughout the unit that gather performance data and appropriately guide students in their own thinking and learning.
Below the unit plan, write a 250-500 word rationale justifying how the unit provides opportunities to examine performance data throughout the unit in the inclusive classroom.
Include the following:
How do activities guide and engage students in their own thinking and learning?
How do activities inform instructional planning based on learning gaps and patterns in the inclusive classroom?
How will the teaching strategies and technologies used encourage students’ development of critical thinking and problem solving skills?
Support your assignment with a minimum of two scholarly resources.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (email@example.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
