Integrated Unit on Energy Content (2).docx


Energy Unit: I like the web resources you have attached for this project! If you are having students write "a small research paper" please attach paper rubric or paper requirements. - KAmy.

Your unit topic is both unique and intriguing. Utilizing debate basics is a great move!
DELAND - ENG

Jennifer Linden - Applied Physics
Peter Policke - Engineering

Both units are well thought out and well developed ideas. I especially enjoyed the Playground unit, and I think students will enjoy it too!

These are interesting units in that you are able to mesh many courses. Copies of any handouts & rubrics should be included.Please work toward building in guest speakers or job shadowing opportunities that are specific to each academy's unique spin on each unit.

The crime scene unit has great potential for a solid integrated lesson. The other two lessons have good potential...we just need the Med Skills person to weigh in when they are hired.

The 3 blondes (first year teachers) worked without a CTE teacher, academy director, or curriculum maps. - S.Mandell Rather an amazing feat I might add. - K.Amy

Both units are creative and interesting. This is an excellent effort considering you did not have a CTE teacher as part of your team! I look forward to seeing how these units develop further with the additional teachers' input.

Wow! This unit is well constructed and includes all of the pieces needed to jump right in and teach this to students. Excellent team collaboration is obvious. The timeline for teaching this unit is also a huge plus...after the Biology EOC.

Good start & effort considering you are working solo at this point. Your ideas will be a great starting point for the other core teachers to pick up and run with.
