Unit Design Resources
E2CCB Network Teams have adopted the Understanding by Design model for Unit Planning. This allows us to work on developing standards based units that have a clearly aligned assessment and pre-planned formative assessments. Instructional activities that are designed relate to the learning targets that are being developed. The template for the unit plans is below.
In order to build the capacity of teacher leaders and administrators in our districts in relation to the Common Core Learning Standards and unit design, we have developed train-the-trainer sessions. These sessions are a combination of direct input as well as facilitation techniques. Participants are also provided access to a Moodle course containing the objectives and resources of the sessions so that they may modify them for their needs. Visit the E2CCB Calendar to see when these sessions are scheduled regionally or contact the IES to set up district or "pod" sessions.
