DL421 Unit Organization
Limited Capacity seats available

What goes in a Unit?
This session will focus on designing a unit that is student-centered and teacher driven by being intentional with each part of the creation process. We will discuss what goes in a unit plan, how to support all students, what are good formative check-in points, and how to ensure students are ready for the type of unit assessment you are planning to give.
As the saying goes - "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!" -Ben Franklin

You can work as a team or individually. Bring your standards, pacing guide, and materials from a unit. I suggest working on a unit that students struggle in or one that can set the tone for the school year.

Advancing Student-Centered Activities with Schoology

In the teacher-centered Schoology Course, students are passive consumers of what the teacher presents. In the student-centered Schoology Courses, students are engaged in a variety of Schoology activities by collaborating, critical thinking, and creating.
