Colorado teachers, working in collaboration with content specialists from the Colorado Department of Education, have created a series of instructional units that are aligned with the Colorado Academic Standards and ready for use in Colorado classrooms. The units are based on the published Curriculum overviews there were created as part of the CDE’s District Sample Curriculum Project and include learning experiences, teacher and student resources, assessment ideas, and differentiation options. The samples are available online along with:
- Instructional Unit Process Guide
- Instructional Unit Blank Template
- Curriculum Overview and Instructional Unit Template with Explanations
- Recorded Instructional Unit Sample Webinars
The resources provided within the sample curriculum units are intended to provide a comprehensive menu of resources for educators to use in a way that supports their instructional planning. They are accessible in a format that allows for users to copy, distribute and adapt the samples to fit their needs.
