Process and Prod­uct Team Work: Unit Planning

The five-part series, featuring Jay McTighe, offers school or dis­trict teams an opportunity to learn to use the Com­mon Core to rethink and build cur­ricu­lum and per­for­mance assess­ments that will increase stu­dent achieve­ment by cre­at­ing tasks that are rel­e­vant, inter­est­ing, mean­ing­ful and useful.
