Planning for Learning: Moving from Unit Plan to Lesson Plan

Date: April 14, 2020 | Session ID: 1465433
Lesson planning is the most important piece of the curriculum, instruction, and assessment triangle. How do teachers deconstruct a unit plan and decide what happens daily in the classroom? Developing skills, strategies, and tools to move from unit learning goals and can-do statements to lesson-level implementation is the goal of this hands-on and interactive workshop. Experience, analyze, and acquire strategies for planning lessons that result in increasing independence and ownership by learners and effective integration of the modes of communication. Watch and examine easily implemented checks for learning that participants will incorporate appropriately in model lesson plans they will design.
