Learning Experience

Session A: Tracing the Learning Progression of a Unit

OUR/IM units are designed to help students develop layers of understanding 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 conceptual understanding and procedural fluency over the course of a unit. In this 2-hour virtual workshop, participants will choose an upcoming unit to plan. They will work with a collaborative group to: 

  • Defining the learning goals of the unit
  • Explore the learning progression of the unit
  • Build a strategic plan for teaching the unit they explored
