How to Create a Unit Study (with a Sample)

The house is still and quiet.  Your children are asleep.  You grab your morning coffee and sit down with the shiny new Teacher Guide from your most recent curriculum purchase.  You run your hand over the book’s smooth and unblemished cover.  That cracking sound you hear as you break open the book is so satisfying.  

You begin at the beginning, thoroughly reading each section and taking copious notes.  After finishing 3 or 4 different sections of the new Teacher Guide, you re-read your notes.  You realize that many of them aren’t just ideas on field trips and enrichment to expand this curriculum, but comments like;

  • D bored? Change to ___...
  • J did this last year. Do ___ instead...
  • Too wordy. Use ___...
  • Re-write quiz questions...

Because you know what types of learners your children are, you know you will be re-writing so much of the new curriculum that the shine is quickly fading.  Maybe you should just create your own...

The idea of creating your own curriculum can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.  

Think about it for just a minute.  

  • Do you act on any of those notes you made while perusing the new Teacher Guides?  
  • Do you pick and choose what you use out of any textbook, workbook or teaching plan?  
  • You probably even change things around inside a Unit Study based on your children’s interests and learning styles.

So…have you ever thought about writing your own Unit Study?
