your lesson planning

Unsure of where to start when planning your lessons? The Lesson Planning Resource Center is here to help! You will find everything you need to STEP UP your lesson planning AND save time. The STEP UP system is simple: 

  • S = standards: Choose 1-3 target standards.

  • T = text: Choose a high-interest text. 

  • E = engage: Choose an engaging topic to hook students' attention.

  • P = plan: Start by planning summative assessments. Then, build the lessons that will prepare students for the end game!

  • UP = Get kids on their feet and moving!
