Designing Strategic Unit and Lesson Plans (IM Math K-5)

Focus Area: IM Math K-12

Instructional Coaches, Teachers

Phase: Launch

Available Now


IM Math K-5 units are designed to tell a mathematical story that helps students explore concepts and develop number sense over time. To bring this to life, teachers need to understand the learning progression of a unit and how the lessons are sequenced to help students build fluency. In this workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to collaboratively plan an upcoming unit and lesson.


  • 6 hours
  • Participants will need a computer with Internet access


I leverage the curriculum’s problem-based structures to plan meaningful learning experiences for my students.
