As you’ve learned in this session, the materials in Schoolnet are a part of a bigger pedagogical picture. There are a lot of “cogs” that keep the instructional process moving smoothly. Making thoughtful, purposeful decisions about how to scaffold resources helps the implementation stage of the Instructional Improvement Cycle to be much more successful.

    • Ex: 07/14/2015-lesson-KS
  • Submit your lesson plan to the School Bank for approval

Practice 2
  • The lesson plans and resources that you created were just used to create an instructional unit
    • Find the unit that we just created
