Based on a backwards design theory, this unit planner takes teachers through the unit writing process by asking them to briefly describe the unit or multiday lesson and then 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, and language. As the user enters data, the boxes increase in size to accommodate text. NOTE TO MAC USERS: Mac is not compatible with Microsoft Word Forms.
