With the introduction of the Understanding by Design concept, we designed these lesson plans to cover an entire unit or topic. Our units usually take up to a month in Reading and two weeks in Mathematics. The first page is designed to list all of the objectives, standards, performance tasks/ assessments, and the enduring understandings for the topic. The following pages are broken into five learning days to match the days of the week; there are enough pages to cover an entire month. This is a word document making everything easily manipulated to fit your needs. We use these templates for all of our subjects, each subject has a different color heading, making it substitute or user friendly. Since we both work in the same school, we created another design, please see the paisley themed lesson plans!
