Over the past few months, I have been fortunate enough to work closely with the Magen David Yeshivah blended learning teachers. I created a blended learning template that I adapted from the original Grant Wiggins template on unit planning. I am passionate about unit planning instead of lesson planning alone for all the reasons it has largely been adopted by most good school districts across the country. The reasons I like it don’t vary that much from other school’s reasoning; however, I particularly like it in a blended/21st century classroom that and even more particularly find it necessary in a yeshiva day school where the number of hours dedicated to general studies is even more crunched.
