  • Lists most relevant content standards
  • Clearly defined unifying principle/theme derived from content standards
  • Lists some relevant content standards
  • Unifying principle/ theme linked to content standards
  • Lists few content standards
  • Unifying principle/ theme may link to some content standards
  • Does not list content standards
  • Does not contain unifying principle/ theme and/or does not connect to standards
Content
  • Includes all concepts, ideas, and/or procedures necessary for students to achieve and extend beyond learning objectives
  • Thoroughly stimulates in-depth critical and/or creative thinking throughout the learning process
  • Activities thoroughly support students in developing and/or achieving specific, targeted, and/or measurable skills or learning objectives
  • Includes all concepts, ideas, and/or procedures necessary for students to achieve learning objectives
  • Stimulates in-depth critical and/or creative thinking throughout the learning process
  • Activities sufficiently support students in developing and/or achieving specific, targeted, and/or measurable skills or learning objectives
  • Includes most concepts, ideas, and/or procedures necessary for students to achieve learning objectives, but may be lacking one or two
  • Encourages some critical and/or creative thinking
  • Activities partially support students in developing and/or achieving specific, targeted, and/or measurable skills or learning objectives
  • Includes some concepts, ideas, and/or procedures necessary for students to achieve learning objectives, but needs some supplementing
  • Encourages a limited amount of creative or critical thinking
  • Activities minimally support students in developing and/or achieving specific, targeted, and/or measurable skills or learning objectives
  • Does not include the necessary concepts, ideas, or procedures for students to meet learning objectives
  • Does not encourage creative or critical thinking
  • Activities do not support students in developing and/or achieving specific, targeted, and/or measurable skills or learning objectives
Instructional Design
  • Thoroughly explains and/or explicitly incorporates best teaching practices/ methodologies throughout the entire unit
  • Design is comprehensive and sequentially formatted as a fully functional teaching and/or learning tool
  • Complete unit includes clearly stated objectives, clear procedures, materials lists, statements of standards addressed, anticipatory sets, direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, rubric/assessment tools, differentiation, cross-curricular connections, and includes or links to all necessary materials
  • Explains and/or incorporates best teaching practices and methodologies throughout the entire unit
  • Design is sequentially formatted as a functional teaching/learning tool
  • Nearly every lesson includes clearly stated objectives, clear procedures, materials lists, statements of standards addressed, anticipatory sets, direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, rubric/assessment tools, differentiation, cross-curricular connections, and includes or links to all necessary materials
  • Incorporates best teaching practices and methodologies throughout most of the unit
  • Design has some sequencing and is formatted as a functional teaching/ learning tool
  • Approximately half of the lessons include clearly stated objectives, clear procedures, materials lists, statements of standards addressed, anticipatory sets, direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, rubric/assessment tools, differentiation, cross-curricular connections, and includes or links to all necessary materials
  • Incorporates some best teaching practices and/or methodologies in the unit
  • Some of the lessons are sequentially formatted, but will require work from the teacher to make it a functional teaching/learning tool
  • Few lessons include clearly stated objectives, clear procedures, materials lists, statements of standards addressed, anticipatory sets, direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, rubric/assessment tools, differentiation, cross-curricular connections, and includes or links to all necessary materials
  • Does not incorporate best teaching practices
  • Lessons are not sequentially formatted
  • Majority of lessons are missing key elements in instructional design such as clearly stated objectives, clear procedures, materials lists, statements of standards addressed, anticipatory sets, direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, rubric/assessment tools, differentiation, cross-curricular connections, and includes or links to all necessary materials
Sequence and Progression / Organization
  • Learning plan unfolds in a natural progression allowing students to build upon prior knowledge
  • Thoroughly outlines an innovative, practical approach to learning specific skills and concepts
  • Sequence follows a fairly natural learning progression allowing students to build upon prior knowledge
  • Clearly outlines an innovative, practical approach to learning specific skills and concepts
  • Some sequencing evident allowing students to occasionally build upon prior knowledge
  • Includes a somewhat innovative or practical approach to learning specific skills or concepts
  • Sequence may be disjointed, interfering with the student’s ability to build upon prior knowledge
  • Includes a minimally innovative or practical approach to learning specific skills or concepts
  • Lack of sequencing interferes with the student’s ability to build upon prior knowledge
  • Includes neither an innovative nor practical approach to learning specific skills or concepts
Engagement
  • Thoroughly stimulating and engaging activities and/or materials provided throughout the learning process
  • Sufficiently stimulating and engaging activities and/or materials provided throughout learning process
  • Somewhat stimulating and engaging activities and/or materials provided at some points during learning process
  • Minimally stimulating and engaging activities and/or materials provided rarely, if at all, during the learning process
  • The resource provides neither stimulating nor engaging activities and/or materials during the learning process
Assessments
  • Appropriate diversity is evident in the assessment methods; students have many opportunities to reveal the depth and breadth of their understanding
  • Includes multiple formative and summative assessments that accurately reflect student understanding
  • Sufficient diversity is evident in the assessment methods; students have many opportunities to reveal the depth and breadth of their understanding
  • Includes several formative and summative assessments that accurately reflect student understanding
  • Some diversity is evident in the assessment methods; students have several opportunities to reveal the depth and breadth of their understanding
  • Includes some formative and summative assessments that accurately reflect student understanding
  • Little diversity is evident in the assessment methods; students have few opportunities to reveal the depth and breadth of their understanding
  • Includes few formative and summative assessments that accurately reflect student understanding
  • No diversity is evident in the assessment methods; students have only a couple of opportunities to reveal the depth and breadth of their understanding
