TGC Fellow Unit Template

Prepared by: Marquita Rawlins School/Location: The Meadows Elementary – DeSoto, Texas

Subject: Math Grade: 5th Interdisciplinary Unit Title: Education and Poverty
Time Needed: 9- Weeks

Unit Summary: Students will study the impact of quality education on poverty. The educational system of various countries will be explored to
determine the comparison of its poverty level. In this unit students will calculate poverty over the last 10 years for each country selected.
They will then graph their results for a visual comparison to be used to determine a viable solution or recommendation.

Stage 3 - Learning Plan
Summary of Key Learning and Unit Plans - ​Students will collaborate with students from another country in
researching a global issue that impacts all individuals. The students will utilize problem solving and critical
thinking skills to assess the issue of literacy and its impact on the economy, in particular poverty. This will be
determined by graphing data, and comparing and contrasting trends of selected countries.
Week 1: Students will be introduced to the meaning of global education and its importance; and assigned to
their groups for collaboration.

Week 2: Students will meet their partner classroom and introduce themselves. Groups will present preliminary
discussions on assigned issue.

Week 3: Groups will conduct research on the causes and effects of education on poverty, and document
findings on Google Docs for collaborative sharing of information and discussions.

Week 4: Groups will collect data on the solutions that other countries are using to increase interest in

Week 5: Groups will devise a plan to propose solutions for their increasing interest in education in their own

Week 6: Students will peer review group presentations by commenting and listing any suggestions or

Week 7: Students will identify and discuss the global impact of their recommendations.

Week 8: Students will revise presentations and make final corrections; then publish for final analysis.

Week 9: Students will collectively present and defend their findings to 4th grade students during a campus
sponsored assembly.

Students will then use a Chromebook to look at a map of the
world, and select a location to find its population.

R​​ethink and revise:

Students will create a poster containing the name of their

location, its population, and 3- facts regarding their culture-
using words, pictures, and symbols.


Students will post their posters in order of their population

from greatest to least.
