Unit Cover Sheets: Guiding Students Through The Unit

A 4QM unit cover sheet hooks students by setting up the contrast between the unit's setting and outcome, and guides them through the unit by showing them the Questions they will answer. Our rule of thumb is that you want at least one of each type of Question, and not too many. This resource is an example from a tenth grade world history unit on China & Japan from 1830 to 1945, and a blank template unit cover sheet you can use yourself.


I 've started liking history a lot more! I used to have to study for hours and hours for tests, but now that I am actually taught the subjects, rather than just memorizing them, I have been much more successful and enjoy the subject.
