To create a rigorous unit of study with embedded lessons teachers must have a complete set of intentionally aligned component pieces. It includes, clear learning outcomes with matching assessments, engaging learning experiences, and instructional strategies that are sequenced and organized to build upon each other.
We have created both Unit Planning Points and Lesson Planning Points, as either a guide when you are creating your own unit/lessons or as a tool to help you judge preexisting units and lessons. We have aligned our unit and lesson planning points to rubrics relevant to the Common Core Standards, current teacher evaluations, Understanding by Design, 21st Century Education. We embedded checklists for levels of thinking including Bloom's Taxonomy and Webb's Depth of Knowledge.
