Come and see what the STEM Center at Henderson State University has to offer. Designing units is very difficult without knowing what resources are out there to help better prepare you in designing them. The best lesson plans are planned backward from clear and worthy course and unit goals. Effective lessons carefully sequence the learning events for optimal engagement and effectiveness—and such a sequence is typically different from the layout of the textbook. Our resources make designing units come easier!!! We will be engaging in resources that are on the primary resource list for the state of Arkansas. We will experience tasks by working through them and discussing how these tasks from our resources fit in your backward design. Resources will be available for check out too!!!
