New Features Webinar: Prioritize Standards at the Unit Level

Join us as we walk through the exciting new feature in Atlas that allows system administrators to create priority flags so curriculum developers can use them to prioritize standards at the unit level. In this webinar we’ll look at how system administrators can create up to 3 distinct flags and explore ways to utilize this new feature to strengthen alignment to standards in the curriculum and to support collaborative conversations around teaching and learning.

Curriculum Writing: Approaches to Unit Planning
November 21 at 12:30pm PST, December 17 at 12:30pm PST

Strong unit plans should clearly articulate learning goals by identifying what students will know, understand, and do as a result of instruction. Once this has been clearly established, teachers can connect the activities and learning experiences that will engage students and bring learning to life. Join us as we explore curriculum development by taking a high-level look at how to support teachers as they write units of instruction.

In this session we will examine elements of high-quality unit plans and break down ways to approach unit planning in a way that is practical, approachable, and tangible. The registration link below is the same for all dates. Select in the drop down menu which session you’d like to attend.

Integrating Your Identity into Your Curriculum
November 7th at 11:00am PST, Nov. 13th at 11:00am PST

All schools are unique in culture, values, traditions, and student experience. While there are foundational elements in effective curriculum writing, a school should also embrace their identity as an equal contributor in the development of their own curriculum writing process. Join us in this webinar and let’s talk about ways to capture and honor a school’s identity within the elements of your school curriculum.
