Year's Best Unit and Reflection

2010-11 Teaching Portfolio Entry #3

If I’m going to judge a unit by how well it accomplished its goals, I have to go with our third unit on Golden Ages, which was basically a unit aimed at “covering” a lot of content in a little amount of time.  This unit revolutionized how I will think about “coverage” in the future, and proved to be even more successful than we hoped.  While it makes me a little sad that the best work I did in my Global class this year was the one where we made the largest sacrifice to coverage and content, it is also the one that might be most useful to people in a similar teaching situation.
