Strengthening instructional units by planning in layers and connecting content to learning.

by Mary Eldredge-Sandbo

Grades 9-12

In these videos, I invite participants to think critically and creatively about how to design lesson and unit plans that are purposely complex and connected to a range of other content.

Part One: Introduction

In part one of the workshop, I describe how I plan my units with multiple layers and connections to make learning “stick.”

Part Two: Building Connections

In part two of the workshop, I detail my approach to building broad and complex connections to student learning.

Part Three: Exploiting Complexity

In part three of the workshop, I invite participants to examine their own use of layering for a more complex set of supports for student learning.
