Reflection: Unit Planning Introducing a Unit - Section 1: Instruction


Even as I opened my notebook to start planning my first unit, I already had lots of ideas of what I wanted to change. I always think I won't have as much to plan each year, but that's never the case. Each group of kiddos is so different and when I let them start determining where the lessons go based on the questions and ideas, I end up creating something entirely new. I wouldn't change that though. My kids love reading and I think it has a lot to do with student ownership
