Teacher’s Need to Plan for Agile Thinking and Adjustable Instruction
ALL-ED Clarity Planner
This unit summary tool builds teacher thinking agility in adjusting instruction to meet the needs of all learners by summarizing the many unit details into a one page document identifying the tools that fuel differentiated instruction; assessment, feedback, and then “next step” goal setting.
Goals (teacher learning goals for this planning tool):
1. I can make precise and explicit connections between the learning goals and the assessments students complete in a unit of study.
2. I can plan a variety of types, forms, and sources of feedback throughout each unit.
3. I can articulate to students specifically what an assessment will measure (content knowledge, skills, thinking, prior knowledge, vocabulary, and conceptual understanding).
4. I can identify tools and routines to enable students to monitor their own learning throughout a unit.
