Instructional content, methods, and strategies—Outline the material to be studied, considering sequence and organization (Hansen, Buczynski, et. Al.,2015).  This is my preferred choice because I think organization is key to any plan.  Formulating an outline that includes everything you want your students to learn is a great start.  When the text talked about an opening activity that will set the tone of the unit it actually made me imagine a classroom and I brainstormed all these powerful openers that would stick with my students forever.  I really feel that all three things mentioned in my choice for instructional unit is a fail proof method.  Anytime an educator strategizes a plan, designs new methods for the plan, and is always looking for new instructional content for their class they are always discovering new ways and ideas of teaching.  It is a process that continues to improve as the teacher learns what works and what does not work in a classroom. Part 2: attached below
