Common Core Unit Planners: ELA/Literacy

Dr. Dea’s Interactive Common Core Unit Planner asks teachers to think holistically about instructional design. Rather than planning day by day, the unit planners (or multi-day planners) asks teachers to consider what students should be able to do independently because of instruction. Users of the planner are prompted to choose instructional standards from drop-down boxes as they build a comprehensive plan selecting from among the five Common Core ELA/Literacy domains: reading, writing, speaking & listening, language. This document may be used to create new Common Core units or revise existing units and actualize standards instruction.

Note: Microsoft Word interactive forms are not compatible documents with Mac computers. Only purchase this planner if you have access to a compatible device for full use of the Word Form.

The preview below offers a view of the planners organization but because it is a PDF file, does not have the interactive features of the actual document. To actually see how the planner operates, watch Dr. Dea’s video provided at the right.
