Systems of linear equations: a unit plan
Part of the student teaching experience across the United States involves taking over a classroom, creating unit plans, making and finding the accompanying materials and activities, and implementing them in a real classroom. This project is a reflection of that experience. The unit plan consists of lesson plans, original supplementary materials, and materials from other resources. These materials were implemented in four 8th grade and high school classrooms at Wes-Del High School. The 11 day unit plan spanned over 15 days, and the diversity of each of the classes had a strong impact on how the original plans were implemented. What happened when I implemented the lesson plans, the changes that I made in the moment and would make in the future if teaching the same unit plan are the focus of my reflections.
