Please check out a sample of the kind of work I have led my department to accomplish with A Template 4 Success!
It is standard-based with an authentic, project-based twist. The social studies department has embraced A Template 4 Success to align content as well as increase effectiveness and efficiency. It is flexible enough to accommodate each of our individual strengths; yet specific enough to demonstrate/document an aligned curriculum. Another added benefit is that is also serves as a lesson plan and a pacing guide. Rather than investing time to each, this embeds it into one. One that is always being adjusted to server our students the best.
