Benchmark - Science Unit Plan 

For this benchmark, you will complete and revise the “Science Unit Plan” template, integrated with health and activity, (fitness, body, physical, emotional, motor skills) and aligned to state content standards, based on feedback from your instructor. The “Science Unit Plan” template includes developed lesson titles, summary and rationale, learning objectives, standards, instructional strategies, differentiation, materials, resources, and technology for five lessons that includes a minimum of two of the following content disciplines: 

  • Scientific Method
  • Health (Human Movement, Activity, Fitness, Emotional Health, Motor Skills) 
  • Physical Science
  • Life Science
  • Earth Science
  • Space Science
  • Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science

Part 1: Assessments 

The final part of the “Science Unit Plan” is to include formative evidence-based assessment strategies to gauge student learning for each individual lesson.

Using the “Class Profile,” develop an end-of-unit summative assessment and

  • List how you will formatively assess the learning for each lesson.
  • Description of the summative assessment for the entire unit.

The completion of your “Science Unit Plan” should fulfill all requirements of the unit plan and considerations for the successful instruction of each lesson.

Ensure that your unit plan includes:

  • Age-appropriate lessons that incorporate the fundamental concepts of multiple areas of science, based on your state standards, integrated to build student understanding for personal and social application in science.
  • Integrate major concepts in health education by creating opportunities for development and practice of skills that contribute to positive understanding of physical activity and health education. 
  • Instructional strategies that promote understanding and skills of physical activity that foster active, healthy lifestyles and enhanced quality of life for students.

 Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on the process of creating a cohesive, weeklong unit plan that successfully incorporates multiple areas of science integrated with health. What strategies can you use to create opportunities to promote health education that positively contributes to a good quality of life for students? Why is this important? How can this be incorporated into your future classroom?

Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources. 

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

This benchmark assignment assesses the following programmatic competencies [and professional standards]:

MA in Elementary Education

2.2: Use fundamental concepts of physical, life, and earth/space sciences to design and implement age-appropriate lessons, centered on the principles of scientific inquiry, to build student understanding for personal and social applications, and to convey the nature of science. [ACEI 2.2; InTASC 4(a), 4(f), 4(g), 5(c), 5(h); MC2]

2.6: Use the major concepts in the subject matter of health education to create opportunities for student development and practice of skills that contribute to good health. [ACEI 2.6; InTASC 5(j); MC2]

2.7: Use instructional strategies that promote, as appropriate to their own understanding and skills, human movement and physical activity as central elements to foster active, healthy life styles, and enhanced quality of life for elementary students. [ACEI 2.7; InTASC 5(j); ISTE-T 2a]

Clinical Field Experience D: Assessment and Feedback 

Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience.

For this field experience, you will assess students, provide them feedback, and reflect on the summative assessment implementation.

Part 1: Assessment

In the previous field experience, you designed and implemented a lesson that provided additional learning support to a selected group of students. In the final part of the assessment process, you will conduct a summative assessment for the same group of students.

Your summative assessment should be designed to determine mastery of identified standards. Prior to completing the assessment, review the pre-assessment to ensure appropriate concepts are measured in the final assessment. Once your summative assessment is complete, ask your mentor teacher to review it for approval.

Administer the assessment to the group of students. You may provide multiple assessment methods (oral, written, technology driven, etc.), and differentiate assessment based on the needs of the students.

Part 2: Provide Feedback 

Individually review each student’s assessment results with him or her. During each conference, ask the following questions to engage the student:

  • How do you feel about the lesson?  
  • What was most difficult?
  • What was easy?

During this time, begin with a positive strength of each student. Provide effective, descriptive feedback by identifying instructional goals for the student to continue working on. End on a positive note that shows compassion, justice, and concern.

Use any remaining field experience hours to speak with your mentor teacher and, provided permission, seek out opportunities to observe and/or assist your mentor teacher and/or work with a small group of students on instruction in the classroom. 

Part 3: Reflection 

Submit a 250-500 word reflection of your experience creating a summative assessment, administering it, and providing feedback. Did the data you collected in the pre-assessment help you prepare an applicable summative assessment? What challenges did you run into during the summative assessment and how did you deal with them?

Explain how you will use this process in your future professional practice.

Submit a description or copy of your assessment, along with a 250-500 word reflection on giving instructional feedback to the students, as one deliverable.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance. 

Document the locations and hours you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.

Submit the Clinical Field Experience Verification Form to LoudCloud in the last topic. Directions for submitting can be found on the College of Education site in the Student Success Center.
