This Process Street Unit Plan Template has been designed to guide an education practitioner through the necessary stages of planning for an upcoming unit.
This template should be run at the beginning moment of formulating a new unit up to the point of submitting your unit plan for review by senior management.
By using this Process Street checklist, all planning data and documentation is saved for review and improvement. This template is geared to ensure teaching methods can consistently hit their highest standards through the following of industry accepted best practices.
This process functions by an 8 phase structure of planning a lesson from the chapter Lesson Plans and Unit Plans: The Basis for Instruction in the book New Teacher's Companion by Gini Cunningham, which you can find on the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development's website.
Some of the chapter's notes are quoted throughout this checklist for further guidance and advice.
The checklist is flexible to allow for your needs and requirements to guide the process.
As with all Process Street checklists, this template is fully editable and you can add or remove steps in the process as you wish.
The template in Process Street acts as structure from which you can run checklists; instances of each template. This means that changes to the standardized template will result in changes for future runs of the checklist.
All data entered into each checklist is stored in a table format in the Template Overview tab. This shows each checklist which has been run along with the metadata for each checklist plus all information which has been entered into the form fields.
You can assign whole checklists to one person or assign different aspects of each checklist to different people. You can do the latter with our Task Assignment feature. This helps you manage workflows and involve multiple people in complex processes or use cases where approval may be required.
To assist further in facilitating approvals, we also have Stop Tasks which stop the process user from continuing until a particular task has been completed. This helps in promoting process adherence and improving accountability.
You can also make use of Process Street's inbuilt automation features like conditional logic, variables, and checklist run links. Or connect Process Street with the third party automation tool Zapier.
