Over the years, teachers have planned tens of thousands of units in JumpRope's Planning Tool. The process is an important one, because it walks through backwards design principles by first collecting learning goals/standards and then aligning assessments to those standards. This work takes valuable time, so we do what we can to give as much value back as possible. We already have time-saving tools like auto-populating the gradebook, cloning, sharing, and archiving units. Today, I'm happy to announce another small feature that can be helpful as you work to stay organized with your curriculum and standards: printed unit plans.
By printing your unit plans, you can easily share this curriculum with non-JumpRopers (other teachers), create an archive / binder of your curriculum, or even share your teaching plans with students and parents. This feature is available immediately without any extra work on your part - simply access the Unit Properties form from your Plan Tab and look for the print button (see the screenshot below).
The output if a simple PDF file with your unit's standards and assessments. We present them in a way that shows the alignment between standards and assessments, and also include additional unit details such as date ranges and descriptions.
For now, we're going to release this as part of JumpRope Labs. We know that we'll hear lots of ideas to improve these reports, and don't consider it to be a completely finished product yet. I hope that you find this feature useful, and look forward to hearing your feedback!
