Example text

Planning and Plans for the Individual Teacher Classroom teachers organize and plan the school year around a series of curriculum units and lessons. Based on local or state curriculum guides, teachers determine the sequence of units, their general goals and objectives, and the time they will spend on each unit. While they frequently make adjustments during the school year, most teachers try to cover the intended units in sequence. As described above, we suggest that teachers review the existing curriculum plans to determine opportunities to integrate Big6 Skills instruction.

Throughout the school year, teachers and students engage in a rich range of curriculum subjects and topics. In fact, one of the current problems we face in education is “curriculum information overload”—there’s just too much to cover in a limited time. That’s why, in implementing Big6 instruction, we do not promote adding new curriculum content, units, or topics. There’s plenty going on in the curriculum already. The last thing that classroom teachers and students need is more content. Therefore, from a Big6 perspective, the challenge is to determine good opportunities for learning and teaching Big6 Skills within the existing curriculum.

In actual school settings, selecting units for integrated Big6 instruction and overall Big6 Skills planning depends upon the specific needs of the students as well as the setting and situation. The ultimate goal is to provide frequent opportunities for students to learn and practice the Big6. Repetition is crucial. While these skills may seem to be simple or common sense at first, they actually are quite involved and can be difficult to master. We cannot overstress this point—we learn through repetition.
