Please help me create a lesson plan for: Native Americans - A Thematic Integrated Unit for 4th Grade focusing on the Navajo, Sioux, Iroquois Indians, and Algonquin

Give examples of the issues that can be described in your rationale - language and culture, learning styles, active participation in the classroom, learning strategies in a specific area of the lesson, development of thinking skills and the transfer process, students' empowerment, parental involvement, and others.
You are to give a clear explanation as to how this interdisciplinary unit addresses the needs of the students in General and Special Education as well as the needs of the English Language Learners, how it may be beneficial for them, and what would be your techniques to reach out for this diverse population.

Solution Preview

Go into great detail about why this lesson is important to your students. Historical meanings, cultural understanding....that sort of thing.
Then think about the students in ANY given 4th grade class. Every year the group will have different needs, personalities and learning styles. How can this lesson adapt and interest the majority, time after time. How will you present the lesson with interest? Will you show video clips and have question and answer periods? Will you create art projects from the theme? Will you take a field trip to an area that supports Native American heritage? Will you listen to various songs from the culture? Will you discuss how each culture differed? How do they differ from ours?
Go on and on with lists like this.

How will you make the students self learners? Maybe create a project they have to research and create at home. ...

Solution Summary

When creating a lesson plan, the teacher needs to consider all the various learning styles and capabilities within the classroom. How can it be advanced or lowered for individual needs?

Teaching: Unit Plan

See the attached file.

Using literature in the classroom is a powerful tool for helping to meet your students' developmental needs. In this task you are to develop a week-long unit lesson plan. Your unit will need to include the following components:
- A paragraph introducing your theme or concept for the entire week.
- A rationale for your unit that clearly describes the stage of development the students you will be teaching are in.
- A paragraph describing the work of a theorist whose beliefs help to support the use of this unit within this stage of development.

Create five different lesson plans that relate to the chosen theme/concept of your unit. Remember to use the lesson plan template for creating your lessons. Explain how the objectives for your lessons measure concepts such as phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, character, setting, plot and theme. Identify and discuss a different genre of literature for each lesson plan (poetry, nursery rhymes, tactile books multicultural books, picture books, non-fiction books, series books, etc.).

I know that you can not do the work, but I was hoping that you could help me with some of the areas. These are the areas I need help with.
- A paragraph introducing your theme or concept for the entire week.
- A rationale for your unit that clearly describes the stage of development the students you will be teaching are in.
- A paragraph describing the work of a theorist whose beliefs help to support the use of this unit within this stage of development.
