I wanted to create a unit organizer than encompassed several aspects but would also be narrowed to one page, fiting in to the INB. Here’s a list of what I wanted:
record of assignments
track their own assessments/learning
place to record questions/big ideas
opportunity for end of unit reflection
Here is what I arrived at for a first attempt, copied front to back and folded in half, this is the order students will see the booklet.
The vocabulary pre-assess was a great tool. I saw this idea over at Math = Love earlier in the summer. It went so well. It only took students a couple of minutes to self-assess their vocabulary knowledge. As I walked around, I was able to see several terms had 3s & 4s. We compiled a list of our 1s & 2s words. I explained, as they learned a word or gained better understanding, they should go back and put a +. Before the end of class, students were asking if they could go ahead and update their chart.
If possible, maybe completemthis part a day before beginning a unit, in order to make needed adjustments based on student responses.
I included the correlated CCSS # for each target. Eventually, these may be beneficial when looking online for a resource on a specific standard.
I am not fully satisfied with this chart yet. Assignments made for specific targets can be listed, a note if completed (stamp) and place to monitor their assessment for each. A second line has been included in case RTI/enrichment is needed.
Finally, the back side has a place to record reflection. Ideally, I would have them complete the reflection at least 2 days prior to unit assessment, allowing to address any needs the following day, prior to assessment.
