Unit Plans

    As part of required coursework, students of Social Studies Education regularly plan lessons and units. Here are some students' ideas.
Many of these unit plans were designed with the Michigan Social Studies Standards in mind.  The newer units are at the bottom of the table.  All units are multi-disciplinary. 

    The newer unit plans will download as a .doc file.
