Planning Your School Year

As you consider the scope of the school year, you may find it helpful to develop a timeline with beginning and ending dates for each Unit, including time for assessments, as well as for local and state standardized testing. The teacher support provides a suggested number of class periods for each Unit’s completion. As the year progresses, you may need to refine the timeline. You may find it helpful to have discussions with your coworkers about the teaching and learning priorities based on the high-stakes tests for your particular school or district.
