Mathematics Unit Planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 6–8
Mathematics unit planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 6–8 provides Years 6–8 mathematics teachers with a seven-step framework for collectively planning units of study. Authors Sarah Schuhl, Timothy D Kanold, Jessica Kanold-McIntyre, Suyi Chuang, Matthew R Larson and Mignon Smith help teams identify what students need to know by the end of each unit and how teachers can build student self-efficacy. They advocate using the Professional Learning Community (PLC) at Work process to increase mathematics achievement and give students more equitable learning experiences.
The authors share tools and protocols for effectively performing collaborative tasks, such as unwrapping standards, generating unit calendars, determining academic vocabulary and rigorous lessons, utilising and sharing self-reflections, and designing robust proportional reasoning units. This book provides practical insights into collaborative planning and detailed, inspiring models of this work in action.
Mathematics teams will:
- learn how to build a shared understanding of the content students need to know in each year level by using seven planning elements
- find protocols for unit-planning and reproducible templates
- understand how teams can successfully incorporate each unit-planning element in their unit designs
- examine three model units on proportional reasoning, one for each year level
- review the role of the PLC at Work process in enhancing student learning and teacher collaboration.
