Unit Plan

This unit will include a Role playing aspect to this unit. Students will be playing the role of Architect and I will be the Client. Students will gather information on a house that I have proposed to build. Students will take information and complete a set of drawings for their design. The only help that will be given from me is to ask questions about what I would like. All technical questions would have been addressed on eariler projects and assignments. Student's also will be able to ask for help from their peers.
