“With clarity and common sense, Mathematics Unit Planning in a PLC at Work, Grades 3–5 guides teachers through the collaborative process of designing aligned and focused units of study in mathematics. This practical and reader-friendly tool will quickly fill with sticky notes and earmarked pages once team members get their hands on it!”

Kim Bailey, author and educational consultant

“Teachers frequently lament that they need to see real examples they can use as models to jump-start their collaborative work. This book includes exactly that. With a well-developed planning process along with templates and completed examples to use as models, teams will quickly be able to get started writing or revising effective unit plans.”

Chris Jakicic, author and educational consultant

“This book gives collaborative teams a strategic and systematic approach to designing dynamic mathematics units of study that build and connect over the course of a school year. Educators who read this book will have an opportunity to dig in deeply to answer the first critical question of learning (What do we want students to know and be able to do?) and come away with a collective set of valuable tools for planning high-quality mathematics instruction.”

Tracey Hulen, mathematics specialist, T. H. Educational Solutions, Virginia
