- Provide class members with a calendar that identifies each day's objectives, activities, assessments, and homework
- The value of the template is that it asks instructors to consider that activities, strategies, and assessments that best meet the objectives of the day
- As a pacing guide, the template would serve better if modified to represent all the days in a particular unit
