BC's Curriculum - Planning

To aid in planning units, projects or any literacy-based teaching using the Redesigned Curriculum, we have prepared a detailed Literacy Planning Guide and a flexible Know-Do-Understand-Be Planning Template. Both templates provide educators with space to plan for Big Ideas, Curricular Competencies, Content, and Core Competencies. The Literacy Planning Guide also and includes space to plan for considerations for inclusion, differentiation, student groups, assessment, and collaboration.

Additionally, we have provided some sample units that have been planned with outcomes from BC’s Redesigned Curriculum.

For those of us who like to have more of a flexible space when planning, POPEY designed K-3 ELA Planning Cards. These cards are designed to be printed back-to-back, and cut up, so that you can move around a year's worth of Big Ideas, Curricular Competenices and Content standards into any configuration that works while planning.
