### UbD stage 3

1. 1. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment Melissa Lewis FRIT 7430: Instructional Technology Stage 2, Understanding by Design Fall 2009
2. 2. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment Title of Unit Map Skills Grade Level 3rd Standard: GPS MAP AND GLOBE SKILLS (No number identified) GOAL: The student will use maps to retrieve social studies information. Map and Globe Skills 3. use a letter/number grid system to determine location 4. compare and contrast the categories of natural, cultural, and political features found on maps 6. use map key/legend to acquire information from, historical, physical, political, resource, product and economic maps 8. draw conclusions and make generalizations based on information from maps Understandings: Students will understand that:  The eight directions, including cardinal and intermediate, are used to develop a relationship between two or more locations.  There are several different types of maps because each one is used for a different and specific purpose.  The map legend is an integral part of the map that allows the features to be defined and the map to be easily and efficiently used to gather a variety of information.  Maps are only representations of geographic areas; therefore, places, objects, and size are not depicted in actuality. Instead the map grid is a tool that uses numbers and letters to more specifically locate objects and places within an area on a map.  Creating a map is a complicated endeavor that can come with a variety of limitations. Related Misconceptions:  A map depicts the exact sizes and distances of locations.  There is only one universal type of map.  Directions are often get reversed.
3. 3. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment Essential Questions: Overarching Questions: Topical Questions:  Why learn how to use a map?  Must a map have a legend?  Why is it important to know where  How can you tell the difference places are? between a political and a physical map?  What problems would arise if there was only one type of map?  In what activities or job situations would a map grid be useful? Why?  In what situations in your own life will you need to use a map?  How would things be different if directions had never been invented?  What limitations could mapmakers come up against? Stage 3: Plan Learning Experiences Week 1 Type week 1 activities here (use page 26 of the UbD text as an example) 1. Begin with a guessing activity to introduce the subject of maps. H 2. Show students the unit map which includes the essential questions and standards that will be studied. W 3. Give pre-assessment E2, W 4. Introduce essential question: Why learn how to use a map? Play give one get one to gather prior knowledge students have about maps W, H, E1 5. Create a word map of all the words students came up with on the previous activity with the smart board using worlde.com. E1, R 6. Complete a KWL Chart W 7. Introduce and discuss key vocabulary terms: Map symbol, map legend, political map, physical map, compass rose, cardinal directions, map key, grid. W, E1 8. Students fill out a graphic organizer to define and illustrate unit vocabulary words. E1 9. Play a game to introduce cardinal directions and introduce essential questions: Why is it important to know where places are? How would things be different if directions had never been invented? W, H 10. Teach key skills: using cardinal directions and how to read and understand a political map using a transparency. E1 11. Using smartboard have students practice identifying directions between locations based off of example scenario’s. E1
4. 4. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment 12. Play a map symbols guessing game. W, H 13. Explain and demonstrate the use of symbols and the map legend using map transparency led by the essential question: Must a map have a legend?. E1 14. Complete a worksheet to practice using symbols, identifying directions, and gaining information from a map. E1 15. Led by the essential questions: Why is it important to know where places are? Break the students into groups and instruct them to create their own map of the classroom by creating symbols for the furniture and label it with a map legend. E1, T 16. Write in reflection journal to record what has been learned so far by answering the essential questions that have been presented. R, E2 Week 2 Type week 2 activities here (use page 26 of the UbD text as an example) 1. Review skills from previous week (using cardinal directions, reading and gaining information from a map) using a powerpoint presentation. Students answer practice questions using student whiteboards. H, E1 2. Take quiz: Using a Map. E2 3. Introduce essential question of the day: In what activities or job situations would a map grid be useful? Why? Then demonstrate and teach how to use a map grid using a smartboard template. Lead students in an inquiry discussion to brainstorm in what job settings this tool would be useful. E1 4. Students work in collaborative pairs to identify specific locations on the smartboard template using their student white boards. E1, T 5. Explain and play the battleship game in collaborative pairs. Students who perform on a lower level will be placed in a group of three to work directly with a partner to complete the activity. E1, T 6. Students write in reflection journal explaining in their own words how to use a map grid and answer the essential question. R 7. Present essential question: How can you tell the difference between a political and a physical map? Then introduce physical maps by allowing students to take on the role of an explorer. H 8. Use a powerpoint presentation to first review landforms and then to teach the purpose of a physical map. E1 9. In collaborative pairs students use a venn diagram to compare and contrast the symbols found on a political map and the symbols found on a physical map. E1 10. Introduce essential question: What limitations could mapmakers come up against? Introduce the performance task to students. The teacher will introduce an enrichment activity for a specific group of students that includes writing a page for the textbook to go with the map. W, T 11. Go over each section of the performance rubric in order to inform students of what is expected on them in the final product. W, E1 12. Allow students time to look through atlases and current text books to look for examples of current physical maps of Georgia. Then students will begin to develop their own map. Then discuss as a group the limitations that mapmakers may come up against. E1, R
5. 5. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment Week 3 Type week 3 activities here (use page 26 of the UbD text as an example) 1. Present essential questions: What problems would arise if there was only one type of map? Then pass out examples of historical, physical, political, resource, product and economic maps. Students at each table will create a list of noticings for all of the maps. H, T 2. Teacher will create a class list that combines everything that each table of students came up with for the different types of maps. E1, R 3. One by one the teacher will introduce and teach each type of map represented by the examples. The name of each map will be given along with the purpose and specific features. E1 4. Periodically the students will be instructed to turn to their collaborative partners and list three things about each one of the maps in order to check learning progress. R, T 5. Students are given time to work on their performance task using resources from the classroom and checked out from the library by the teacher. E1 6. Play a matching game to remind students of the different types of maps. H 7. Using the smartboard the teacher will begin to fill in a graphic organizer that identifies each type of map with help from the students. E1 8. The students will then work in collaborative pairs to complete the graphic organizer: Different Types of Maps. E2, T 9. As review the students will work together in table groups to complete a variety of questions testing their knowledge on the different types of maps. This will be played as a game with tables competing against one another. E2 10. Students write in reflection journals and develop a short paragraph to describe each type of map and answer the essential question: What problems would arise if there was only one type of map? E2, R 11. Students are given significant time to work on their projects and instructed to take them home if a substantial amount of work is left. E1 12. Instruct and demonstrate to students how to use the rubric to check their project to make sure it meets all of the requirements. E1 13. Break students up into pairs based on ability to give them the chance to review each other’s projects using the rubric and give each other feedback. E2 14. Play a jeopardy game on the smart board to review the map unit. This is a chance for students to review for the test. Higher level thinking questions are incorporated. R, E2, T 15. Fill in the L section of the KWL chart. E2, R 16. Students will take post assessment. E2 17. Each student will be given a chance to share their final physical map project and then they will turn them in for grading. E1, E2 18. Students will finish with writing in their reflection journal about what they learned during this entire unit by answering this essential question: In what situations in your own life will you need to use a map? If students have trouble with writing they will be given the opportunity to tell the teacher what they have learned through the unit. Then they will be asked to write a few sentences with pictures (depending on their level). R, T
6. 6. FRIT 7430: UbD Stage 3 Assignment Notes to the Instructor Use this area, if needed, to explain to the instructor how your planned activities above satisfy specific elements of the scoring rubric. Each of my learning activities is directly linked to one of the standards listed for the unit. Every activity allows students the chance to get closer to learning the knowledge and demonstrating the variety of skills needed to fulfill the standards. Also, each essential question is answered through the activities during the course of the unit. The essential question linked to the activity is presented before the teacher begins that lesson. Throughout the unit there are several times in which the teacher differentiates instruction in order to reach all students in the classroom. This is indicated with a T. One way of differentiating is by using technology during many of the learning activities. The smartboard is used on several occasions along with a lesson with a powerpoint and use of worlde.com.
