Planning and Implementation
Element 3.1: Design and implement short and long term plans that are linked to program and instructional goals as well as a variety of student needs
Artifact: EDU 255 Unit Plan
Date: Spring 2011
This is a unit plan for orienteering that I created as part of my EDU 255 Lab D2. The unit plan covers everything that someone would need to know in order to teach this unit themselves such as history, terminology, an 8 day block plan, a full lesson plan, scoring rubrics, etc.
When making this unit plan, I had to plan ahead and work to construct a unit that could be used for all students. In order to do this I included modifications for a lot of the activities in the lesson plan as well as for the final assessment.
Creating and implementing unit plans is important as a physical educator because it’s important to plan out what you’re going to teach in order to improve student success. It is important to create units that will help students meet the program goals while at the same time providing fun and interesting activities that will motivate students to pursue physical activity outside of school.
