Task #1 – (3 minutes)

Teacher’s Note – Today I cannot be with you. I am chaperoning a Law & Order SLC Trip to Sacramento to tour the State Capitol building. If you need anything e-mail me at I will have my smart phone with me today, but due to constant moving around I will not be able to live chat help.

Task #2 – (57 minutes)

You are going to help in developing the Organized Crime Unit we are about to start. The information below is to be filled out a google doc and shared  to me. Title the Google doc ” Organized Crime Unit Thoughts – Period 3 – Your Name Here”. The words written in capital letters below are what you will copy over and fill out. The words in italics are instructions clarifying what you type in these areas.

UNIT NAME: What do you want to call this unit?

UNIT SMART GOAL: A S.M.A.R.T. goal is a goal that is specific, measurable, achievable, rigorous, and timely. The unit SMART goal is telling people what is the overall concept/ability you wish to gain from studying this topic. Here is a downloadable PDF guide for how to write a S.M.A.R.T. goal -> SmartGoals Template for Educators

UNIT OBJECTIVES: There have to be four main objectives per unit taught. One for each level of Webb’s Depth of Knowledge. Use the chart below to design four objectives (aka: goals) we should set for ourselves while studying this unit. Here is a downloadable PDF guide for how to write lesson objectives -> Writing Learning Objectives Guide

Webbs Depth of Knowledge Chart

TOPICS/PEOPLE/GROUPS: List any topics, people, or groups you would like to see specifically taught to you. Think of at least ten.

UNIT VOCABULARY: List any words you think we should know while studying this unit. Think of at least five.

LESSON TOPICS: I am going to spend about ten days on this unit. Look back up at the topics, people, and groups you listed above. How many days would you give to each? List the topics, people, and groups here with how many days we should spend on each and a brief sentence about why.

UNIT SUMMATIVE PROJECT: In this section you will design the summative project for this unit. So far we have been doing essays and e-mails to enhance our writing. I am opening the door on this unit to you. Whoever designs the best unit summative project, that is also approved by your peers, that is the project we will do instead of an essay at the end of this unit. Examples of other summative projects include: tri-folds, posters, 3D models, and interviews. Make sure in this section to state the type of project, followed by how to do it, and the rubric for which it should be graded by.
