Step standard 4 – unit and lesson planning

At this stage in the unit development, you have aligned student   learning to state, national, and technology standards, and assessed   your students’ knowledge and abilities related to your targeted content.

During the design phase, you will carefully construct activities   that are geared toward improving learning outcomes in your specific   disciplines. Each activity should align to instructional goals and   demonstrate your understanding of the pre-assessment data results,   contextual factors, student learning needs, and management strategies.

Collaborating with your cooperating teacher, complete STEP Standard   4 to design a unit of instruction that aligns to state content  standards. Be sure to include technology integration and demonstrate   how you will differentiate your lessons to meet the needs of   individual students.

Note: You are expected to teach the unit by the end of Topic 6.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
