Intentional Learning

Incorporate Social Studies Seamlessly in ELA Instruction

Collaborative Work Session

How do we make sure our units have all the 'good stuff' students need? Let's find out! We will use what we know about instructional best practices to analyze a lesson. Then we will plan a unit together that accelerates learning, integrates content, and engages students!


· Determining the components of a great unit

· Analyzing a sample unit plan

· Developing a quality unit together

· Sharing our learning to support each other
