Based on a backwards design theory, this unit planner leads teachers through the unit writing process by first briefly describing a unit or multiday lesson and then selecting 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 does not allow full accessibility to Microsoft Word Form functions. Be sure you have a compatible device before purchasing this planner.
