To see what I have done in past years see: Curriculum years 1-3 & Curriculum – year 4.
Below you will see how I tentatively lay out the year. I like to see everything side by side, week by week a running Google Spreadsheet. As a department of one, it helps me to balance out starting new units and films. I used to think it was easier to plan if all classes started and ended units at the same time. Yeah right! Now I prefer to space out when assessments will be taking place if possible. Sometimes with the end of a semester it is not possible, but it helps if you can. I try to do about one novel unit per quarter, each using the supplemental Teacher’s Guides, movies, and additional resources to round out the units. The colors mean the following: Yellow – Martina Bex Somos Units, Purple – TPRS Novel units, Blue – Culture mini units, Orange – Intro or Choice Novels.
