Curriculum Planning 7th Grade: New(ish) teacher, help!

Dec 23, 2017 5:02pm

Sorry. Maybe I'm overlooking the obvious, but how do you plan your yearly curriculum using the "year-at-a-glance" or "scope-and-sequence?" I prefer exact clear step-by-step procedures, and after a recent poor teaching evaluation, I feel like my current method of pasting a standard in the search bar and looking for lessons and activities that pop up in the search results, is not the best method.

What do you do to plan your curriculum? Please DO NOT be vague. This is my first year having to do this, and non-concrete suggestions just confuse me. Please don't say things like "start at the results you want." I'm not familiar enough with anything for that to make sense in my situation.

All I want to know is how can I make vague standards equal a few weeks of engaging lessons?
