: bringing together what students learned in these classes by having a healtheducation fair. This will be a senior exit project that students must complete in order to graduate.English teachers will be the ones to facilitate it. Assessments will be based on an essay and theportfolio that they have created. The portfolio will be presented in the gym to lower grade levels.-Because our Unit Plan encompasses five different teachers in five different subject areas, our unit planis not as detailed as we would like. As a result our lesson plans will be filled with more thorough detail.
