Unit Plans as Emergence

This is an article I wrote a while back, in part for my course work, in part to get an idea organized in my head.  Planning is tough for teachers.  How much do we plan up front?  How much do we let the students drive the inquiry?  How student centered is our class?  What Ed Said has recently done a wonderful post with these questions and more.  Who controls the learning?  Great questions that require thoughtful responses.

Here are my thoughtful responses to those questions.

Thanks to those who took the time to proofread and give feedback.  It is nice to have a group to share ideas with.
