Curriculum Writing: Approaches to Unit Planning
September 24th, November 21st, December 17th 12:30 pm at PDT
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.
