A partnership between San Jacinto USD and Scholastic Achievement Partners (SAP).
San Jacinto Unified School District is kicking off 2013--2014 with eight new Common Core-ready ELA units for every K-12 grade level. These units were developed by key stakeholders -- teachers, coaches, and principals-- from the ground up in just five months. How? Through an expertly facilitated process of building deep understanding of the coming assessments, deconstructing the Common Core strands, backwards mapping units from the assessment consortium claims and targets, selecting a variety of complex texts, and planning for differentiated instruction.
Watch to see what the Curriculum Transformation process looked like and hear what San Jacinto educators have to say about their experience.
