My proposed unit title is "Dem Bones". My unit is going to cover the human skeletal system. At the conclusion of this unit the students will be able to identify the bones of the cranium, face, neck, torso, arm, hand, leg, and foot. They will also be able to explain the importance of anatomy and physiology to the cosmetology profession. My essential question is going to be: How is Structure important? My unit questions are: Why is the skeleton system important? Why do cosmetologists need to study the skeleton system?
Content questions will be: How many bones are there in the human body? Identify the strongest bone of the face? Compare the bones of the skull with other bones of the skeleton.

Module 1 Reflection

This module has made me think about my role as an instructional designer by emphasising the importance of project-based learning. Projects that require students to investigate problems and come up with solutions. I realize that I need to put in additional time researching ideas for projects.
