Topic 11 Unit Overview: This is a 2 weeklong lesson plan that uses blended learning.

All groups start together for the 'warm up thinking', the essential question, I can review, mini whole group lesson with a formative assessment to check student
progress through standards. Students then break out into personalized groups around the room and use a blended learning menu that allows them to differentiate by
process, product, or interest. I meet with each group do discuss their progress and, depending on the skill or strategy, formatively assess their understanding at where
they are in their standards/goals. Once time is up, students determine their next steps and independent practice - via homework sheets, problem solving - and include
the video for the next lesson when appropriate.
