Aligned with the Effective Schools Framework Lever 5 EA 5.1 Objective-driven daily lesson plans with formative assessments
We know students come to our class wanting to know what they're learning and more importantly, why they're learning the lesson content. Whether a class is being taught for the first time or the fiftieth, a “road map” of their intended learning goals always helps you and your students stay on track and lets them answer the what and the why for their learning.
During this interactive workshop, you will analyze the priority TEKS for your content and create essential questions aligned with assessments. You'll also walk away with a learning map for students that contains a detailed graphic organizer with an extended map of a unit of study and targeted thinking skills. You will design a Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) Unit Organizer during a structured planning process and then plan how to use it with students during your instruction to allow them to own their learning of the unit content. Your students will be actively engaged throughout your lessons as they use the map or organizer to direct their learning with you as their guide..
