Week 15: November 30 - December 6
Week 16: December 7 - December 13
Creating a Unit Plan and your Pedagogical Response
There is no reading in the last two weeks of the course. Instead, you will be creating your unit plan and pedagogical response for your final. This project will have you working with the idea that will centralize your unit and the scaffolding of assignments to get to your desired outcome from your students.
I am expecting that you would create a 3 to 4-week design that would move students through different readings and writing projects. You will be using this design in your final paper so, you need to be thinking about how your pedagogy (theory) supports the choices you have made. The unit can be for any grade level.
I will be expecting each of you to join me in a 15 to 30 minute office hour during these two weeks to go over your design. Please email me at and I will set-up a Zoom meeting.
Due: Friday, December 18th at 5 pm
The final in our class will be a project where you create a course design for either an elementary, middle-school, high-school, or college writing classroom. You will work on the course design during week 4.
This project will also include a pedagogical response that explains why you have utilized the materials you have chosen in your course design. Both the course design and the pedagogical response are due for the final. The same rules apply: correct MLA and APA format, in-depth in scope, clean and clear grammar and spelling, and turned in to turnitin.com for compliance with rules of plagiarism.
Your course design can be completed through many mediums (website, Word doc, Google Slides, Prezi, Excel Spreadsheet…).
The Final Course design and pedagogical response are worth 210 points and 21% of your grade.
