Planning the Best Curriculum Unit Ever | Edutopia
The good curriculum is in the details, so focus your teacher super powers on the granular aspects of planning ahead for the new school year.
I do like the point this article makes about instruction being an “unnatural skill”. Everything needs to have a plan behind it. In all the years I have been teaching you can’t go into class without some form of a plan. The lesson outcomes will depend on how good that plan is. The article does a good job summarizing unit planning. The “Unit Plan” Document has some good pointers. Some you might do already but others might help enhance your units. As they say “try it you might like it”.
