An Integrated Approach to Instructional Planning
  • How can we increase a more comprehensive integrated approach to instruction and learning across all content areas?

As you review the grade specific ASPIRE Curriculum Maps for ELA and Math standards, use the Integrated Planning Discussion Template to begin your exploration and planning for integrating ELA, Math within your Core Content Area. Consider what you already do to integrate ELA and Math standards and work to expand your connections to ELA and Math content standards throughout your lesson plans. Identify intended learning outcomes and assessment strategies that you will use to monitor student progress.
