Hi there. I have to do either a third grade or second grade "unit" plan using the Gradual Release of Responsibility (G.R.R.) for 3rd grade. The unit should last 2 weeks- but all the lessons don't need to be planned out. The theme is supposed to be based on the Social Studies "Big Idea" of Time, Continuity and Change. I need to develop essential questions and be able to defend how do deal with understandings and (mis)understandings. Any idea of a good topic to do for Second? I've been googling around state standards (our professor isn't very impressed with the Illinois ones)- not many ideas about where to look. (I teach pre-k- so anyone beyond Kindergarten is "Big" for me- I student taught in 4th but that was many moons ago- and in a very different district).
