CCSS ELL Unit Piloted in 3 Districts
Recently I wrote about the Understanding Language initiative's new CCSS unit called Persuasion Across Time and Space. The until had previously been piloted on a small scale in New York City and Oakland, CA.
Now, Lesli Maxwell at Education Week has posted an article that outlines how the unit will be piloted in Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL; and Denver, CO. In this larger pilot, the Understanding Language team will provide professional development to teachers in these three districts and will also monitor the unit's implementation and collect feedback that will inform the revision of the unit's lessons. The results of this pilot will impact instructional resources being developed in mathematics, science, and English language arts.
I'm looking forward to hearing more about how this complex, engaging unit is received "on the ground." Are you?
