Based on a backwards design theory, this unit planner asks teachers to describe a unit or multiday lesson and select the appropriate standards through a series of Common Core aligned dropdown boxes. No need to look up the standards, they are in the document and separated by each of the domains: literary reading, informational reading, speaking & listening, writing, language, and foundational standards. All subcategories in each strand are listed in the dropdown boxes as well. As the user enters data, the boxes increase in size to accommodate text.
