Elementary teachers frequently develop and implement unit plans designed to enhance students’ learning in English language arts. Successful unit plans consider a broad range of needs, including literacy skills, standards, text selections, students’ unique learning abilities and backgrounds, and sound instructional strategies and assessments.
In this course, you have created three lesson plans that together comprise the basis for a unit on the literature you selected.
For this assignment, create a 500-750 word assessment plan for your unit that includes formative and summative assessments, as well as technology and differentiation.
Include the following in your plan:
- Describe formative assessment strategies that would be used in each of the lessons you created to gauge student understanding and inform instructional planning.
- Create a summative assessment activity for the unit that helps students apply their developing ELA skills of reading, writing, speaking, viewing, listening, and thinking to many different situations, materials, and ideas.
- Discuss the use of digital tools in assessments to promote effective communication, collaboration, and support interactions to meet diverse learning needs.
- Describe how the formative and summative assessments can be differentiated to meet the diverse learning needs.
- How effective assessment practices guide students toward their individual learning goals.
In addition, write a 250-500 word reflection on the process of creating a literature unit and explaining how you plan to use research on teaching, professional ethics, and resources available for professional learning to improve student learning in your future professional practice. Cite the “COE Professional Dispositions of Learners,” and the “Model Code of Ethics for Educators” as appropriate.
Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly resources.
