Multi-Genre Thematic Unit Plan: Each week’s content area writing assignment is designed to prepare you for your final project (see final project template). Your final project (due Unit 8) is a Multi-Genre Thematic Unit. You will be creating a multi-genre unit plan for a content area. Your plan must include content area standards and literacy standards. Learner outcomes must be clearly stated and must be appropriate and attainable. Your unit will center on a theme which is chosen by you.

Use the information from the handout and video of Understanding by Design to help you develop your Plan.  Begin with the end in mind!  What do you want your students to know by the end of the unit?  How will you assess them?  How will you accommodate for the various learning styles and differences?
