This Instructional Plan is designed to guide the teacher as the required information is presented to and
mastered by students.

Components of the Instructional Plan--This Instructional Plan contains the components listed below.

Introductory Items

        Quarterly Scope and Sequence Chart--guides teachers in planning their instruction for the quarter.
        Teachers are expected to follow this timeline of topics.

The Instructional Plan

        Quarter--the quarter in which this portion of this course is to be mastered by the student.

        Textbook Reference--the portion of the primary instructional tool which is being presented.

        Webb's Depth of Knowledge--Teachers should use Webb's Depth of Knowledge questions at Level 2
        (Basic Application of Skill/Concept), Level 3 (Strategic Thinking) and Level 4 (Extended Thinking).
        Questions at these levels promote depth of understanding and meet FCAT requirements.
        Please see Appendix B for further information.

        Objectives--the student performance objective which is to be mastered by each student. These are
        the objectives for your lesson plan form. Teachers are expected to use different methods and additional
        content to meet the needs of their students

        Correlations--each objective is correlated to the appropriate social studies Sunshine State Standard(s)
        and Florida Statute 1003.42 (Required Instruction). Please note that many textbooks have Sunshine
        State Standards correlations included in them. These do not necessarily match the correlations for
        each objective. In addition, Florida is revising the Sunshine State Standards. Please use the
        correlations for each objective rather than the ones included in the textbook. (A=History, B=Geography,
        C=Government, D=Economics)

        Reading Strategies--methods or graphic organizers for vocabulary, pre-reading, during reading, and
        after reading. The graphic organizers are designed to give teachers a template to use as is or to modify
        as appropriate to the text material. Clicking on the method or organizer will open a web page explaining
        the method.
