LINKING THEORY
Identify the current educational or curriculum theory used in each portion of the unit of study for the whole group, small group, and individual students. While you may not have considered theory when designing your unit, you can undoubtedly find a current theory or theories that are applicable by referencing the course readings from Units 2, 3, or 4. You may also reinforce the theories presented in this course by doing an Internet search for “educational theories” and “curriculum theories.” Analyze the current educational theories and the relationship they have to the learning activities in your unit of study.FLEXIBLE GROUPING RATIONALE
Explain why you planned each activity the way you did for individual, small group, and whole-group learning scenarios. Review your selected plans for research-based practices implementation.CONNECTING STANDARDS
Explain how each selected lesson/activity or unit of study meets local, state, or national standards.With a reflective perspective, critically assess your planning. How well did each activity reflect a solid learning theory while aligning with either the local, state, or national standards?REINFORCING STUDENT NEEDS
Explain how each activity takes into account your students’ intellectual, academic, social, and emotional development.Explain how components of the unit of study influence student motivation.How well did you take into account your students’ different learning profiles, interests, and readiness levels?AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT AND REFLECTION
Evaluate the effects of research-based curricular approaches on the process of curriculum design and development. How does using research-based practice impact your instructional decision-making?Reflect on and evaluate the quality and appropriateness of various curriculum designs in your unit of study. Which elements of curriculum design do you value and will you continue to incorporate into your practice?Comment on how the reflective process has influenced (or will influence) your professional practice.APA Reference Page
