Every year FCPS brings its best teachers to the central office to develop curriculum.  This summer our talented teachers created a unit planner for concept based curriculum that streamlines the planning process for teachers by capitalizing on easy backwards design.  The tool includes focus on Enduring Understandings, Essential Questions, Portrait of a Graduate characteristics, a yearlong collaborative team checklist of SOL Strand Alignments, Digital Citizenship, Authentic Assessments, Blended Learning, and much more.

This session will focus on sustained implementation and use of the tool, and will make use of the Student Engagement Model and Literacy Strategies any teacher can use in the classroom to keep participants interested.
