I'm honored to be a guest blogger for Rachel Lynette's blog, Minds in Bloom! If you're a frequent reader, you already know that I'm a passionate advocate of research-based instructional practices that focus on the standards. Check out my blog post to learn how to unwrap a standard, use backward design to create a unit plan, and employ a complete learning cycle to maximize learning.
