Part of the Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series, this guidebook provides high school teacher teams with a framework for collectively planning units of study in a professional learning community (PLC). Educators can use this resource to promote student mastery of high school mathematics.

Benefits

  • Understand how to collaboratively plan units for high school mathematics.
  • Study the seven unit-planning elements, and learn how to incorporate each in unit designs.
  • Review the role of the PLC at Work® process in enhancing student learning and teacher collaboration.
  • Observe model units for Algebra 1, geometry, and Algebra 2.
  • Receive tools and templates for effective unit planning.
