Curriculum Development - Creating Thematic Unit of Study Make-and-Take 5-Day Institute

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.
