Integrated Curriculum Unit: Signature Assignment Due the last day of class.
Signature Assignments are designed to measure your learning relative to the course outcomes. In this assignment, you will be asked to create a unit that includes the following components:
Use APA format: Cover page, an Abstract, and a Reference page.
Unit Theme: Identify the overall theme for your unit. Provide a statement as to what your theme is and why you chose it. Explain why it is developmentally appropriate for the age group you chose.
Statement of Purpose: Prepare a statement regarding the overall outcome for the unit. The statement should be clear and the outcome should be measurable. Use the revised Bloomâ€™s Taxonomy list found in Unit 1: Writing Outcomes. This can be from one paragraph to one page depending on what you feel you need to write so that the purpose and outcome are clearly stated.
CA Preschool Learning FoundationsÂ (or other State Standards, as appropriate): Identify the Foundations/Standards that will be addressed by the unit theme. Here is a link to the CA Preschool Learning Foundations website:Â http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/cd/re/psfoundations.asp
Your plans probably meet more than one curriculum area, so please list as many here as you feel will be needed to state what standards are being met. Many of these are already listed in your CAG's. This portion is to be a summary of what is addressed by the theme.
Unit Lesson Plans: Please include the 3 CAG lesson plans you developed in Units 2 and 3 for this section. (The template for the CAG's can be found in Doc Sharing.)
Assessment of the Unit Outcome: How will you know that your students have met the overall outcome for this thematic unit? This can be a few sentences up to a paragraph or two.
Parental Involvement: Provide a sample of a letter that you might send home to parents announcing the thematic unit. Include in the letter ways for parentâ€™s to provide support and bridge the learning for this unit between home and school. See the Text Books and Unit 4: Video Clips for ideas. Add appropriate graphics so that the letter is interesting and attractive.
