Draft Lesson/Unit Plan Outline

Premise/Background:
This lesson plan is part of a larger unit on Ancient Egypt. It asks students to use the knowledge they have gained throughout the unit along with the technology skills that they have learned througout the year. Earlier in the unit the students wrote a research paper on an aspect of Ancient Egypt that they chose. The paper required an outline, a rough draft and a final draft complete with proper formatting, a graphic and a minimum of three sources. A topic hotlist provided high quality and education resources for the students to explore and retrieve information from.

Title:
A Time of Pharaohs and Pyramids

Description/Summary:
This lesson plan represents the conclusion of a unit on Ancient Egypt. The students will form groups based on their reserach paper topics from earlier in the unit and create a video basedon those topics. Because students were allowed to choose any aspect of Ancient Egypt to write about, there may be more than one group with a similar topic. The video will incorporate still images, digitalized video footage, text, voice over narration, sound effects, and music. The students will need to submit production documents including a treatment, storyboard, and script for the video, along with a final dvd copy of the video.

Learner Analysis:
This sixth grade classroom consists of 22 students in a small sized rural school. There is a wide range of abilities among the students and two students have learning disabilities in reading.
