BSCS 5 Tools of Unit Writing
Using the Arizona Science Standards to Plan a Unit of Instruction
At the heart of the Five Tools and Processes is the translation of science concepts, practices, and performance expectations into multiple instructional sequences that form a unit of instruction. This is followed by a more in-depth plan for one instructional sequence and assessment task to provide evidence of student learning focused on performance expectations. These processes help teachers plan for conceptual coherence. This webinar will give you a brief overview of the BSCS 5 Tools process by briefly going over tools 1, 2, 3 and 4.
