Based on a backwards design theory, this unit planner asks teachers to describe a unit or multiday lesson, consider assessment of that unit, and select the appropriate standards through a series of Common Core aligned dropdown boxes. No need to look up the standards; they are neatly placed in dropdown boxes within the document and separated by each of the domains: literary reading, informational reading, speaking & listening, foundational skills, writing, and language. As the user enters data, the boxes increase in size to accommodate text. NOTE TO MAC USERS: Mac does not support full use of Microsoft Word Forms.
