Classic Google Sites unit plans organize lessons in a logical manner. When you create a curricular website, resources immediately become polished and professional. In addition, you can link relevant videos, articles, and even blog posts.
You Can Make Classic Google Sites Unit Plans
Let’s take a look at this fourth grade literature unit. As you can see at the bottom of the home page, it addresses RL.4.1. A complete learning progression teaches kids to construct thorough responses.
On the first page, lesson plans spell out important instructional information:
- Higher order thinking skills
- Directions for each session
Clear, Simple Organization
The sidebar organizes content in a clear, simple, and sequential way. This simplicity guides the teacher through the unit with ease.
Separate pages store content for each session. They each feature one version of the story.
Questions, also inserted as images, allow teachers to view the lesson at a quick glance.
At the bottom of the page, separate PDFs are linked for quick access. Teachers can click the file name to view. When they click the down arrow, the file downloads and can be printed.
This unit uses content differentiation. Each passage has been adapted for three reading levels. As you can see above, each level is linked separately.
Linking Additional Resources
Digital resources can be linked to words or images. For example, teachers simply click to access two videos on this page. Classic Sites also allows you to link all kinds of files to the bottom of the page. When they’re linked, they become digital files. Just grab the URL to share.
Teacher Tips & Extensions
I like to add helpful hints and extensions to my unit. For example, in this unit, I linked relevant blog posts and lots of ideas for lightening up this heavy instructional unit.
Links to Paperless Google Slides
Today, so many classrooms use G Suites for Education. To address their needs, teachers simply click to access editable Google Slides.
Previews Posted on the Internet
As a TpT seller, I appreciate the opportunity to post a preview of this unit on the Internet. I simply duplicate the site, make some changes, and post it for all to see.
Google Sites Innovate Teaching
