Once you’ve gotten to know your students through learning profile inventories that identify individual areas of strength and learning styles, you can design multimodal lessons that incorporate instructional technology that engage the 21st century learner. This week, you will create a three-day unit plan outline that addresses students’ diverse learning styles and multiple intelligences, acknowledges cultural and language differences, and integrates digital tools and technology.
Using the textbook as guidance, create a Unit Plan outline, using the provided template download that includes:
Introduction: Describe the demographics of your current (or fictional classroom) including:
Stage 1: The first stage is to determine the “Big Picture”; what you want students to learn, conceptually, at the unit’s conclusion. You must:
The following resources are helpful when creating Stage 1:

In addition, this stage should also incorporate self-regulation strategies (behavior management).
In Stage 3 you must:
Instructive tools to consider for your lesson:
Use your course text and at least two other sources (either scholarly article or online resource). Your paper will be formatted according to APA guidelines including title and reference pages.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
