It has been a couple (by now a few) exciting weeks of school starting again this year. We've been busy considering CCSS implications not only for English Language Arts (ELA) but also for Math. I know my teachers and I are are in overload with systems implementation, CCSS and gearing up for district accreditation (AdvancED). In trying to help with focus and clarity as well as apparent overload, I finally wrapped my head around what a lesson plan template might look like for not only CCSS, but also a systems approach to continuous improvement. The result is here, and is still a work in progress. Feel free to use and provide feedback, all I ask is you leave the copyright information at the bottom.
It is for a unit plan as we are focused on the short Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles that should be around 5 - 10 days - seems perfect for most units.
