Assignment 4: Unit Plan Revision for Culturally-Responsive Instruction (10% of final grade)

Student name: ____ Smithson ______

Your goal is to plan broadly for a learning environment that values cultural diversity. Thoughtfully revise your previous unit plan in
such a way that it better addresses the need for the inclusion of diverse perspectives and ways of knowing within your particular
teaching context, and fully develop an additional lesson plan for the unit that also serves that need. (Follow the directions from
Assignment 2 to develop the new lesson plan and related teaching materials.)

You also will provide a 2-3 page write-up that explains and justifies your revisions and the changes/additions you applied. Make sure
to discuss the criteria outlined in the rubric items that pertain to Assignment 4. For each item discuss which specific criteria you feel
you achieved and justify your stance. Also discuss your goals for Professional Learning and Growth both how you have met
previous goals and your goals for the future.

Rubric items to address for Assignment 4: # 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

Instructor comments: Tanya you have made a number of key changes that make your unit more culturally responsive. So
much of what you have done is strong from a planning and implementation perspective. Not much I would change. Well
done.
