REACH Curriculum Development - Creating Core Content Units of Study


Teachers will learn how to create a focused interdisciplinary thematic unit of study.  

Teachers will:

  • Learn to create essential questions that guide students’ learning through four-five week unit plans;

  • Use REACH unit plan templates and guides to create the unit;

  • Learn to identify text sets that align to core content and promote reading;

  • Align writing assignments to the unit of study;

  • Create assessments and rubrics to monitor student learning; and

  • Create structures for sharing units and monitoring instructional progress with other teachers using the unit.

School leaders should consider sending a team of teachers so that at the end of the session there are enough units to guide students’ learning for the entire year within a grade.
