The Complete Unit Design Template

On Monday, I will be reviewing the complete template for unit design study.  If you are interested in see this, click here.  You will notice that all three sections are in place.  As a reminder, we are creating drafts.  As we learn from this experience and as we learn more about unit design next year, subsquent drafts of units will be easier to write and the product will be stronger.  We are involved in a recursive process.
I posted the following on July 19th, 2011:
We are engaging in this work to:
  • support quality unit and lesson design and assessment in the building,
  • support ongoing teacher professional development around pedagogy,
  • foster a more consistent vocabulary and expectations for teaching and learning,
  • share some of the learning from TLA and other development, and
  • make better sense of our district curricula.
This work will be ongoing, so please resist thinking about "having it all done" by the end of the year.  I will share more information with you and with the department chairs about this process.  We will work on this together: an ambitious project that will have remarkable results.
I hope that you are beginning to see your work take shape.  I hope that collecting all of your work, representing conversations, revisions, questions, and reviews, in this template feels like a strong accomplishment.  I look forward to seeing the results of your work.
