Aligning Outcomes, Assessment, and Activities

This week I looked a little closer at Fink’s guide regarding aligning outcomes, assessment, and activities. Using the guide I created a unit/course for my first graders focusing on learning how to count money.  This guide made me think more deeply about the learning process, and what did I exactly want my students to get out of it.  It also focuses on the whole learner, not just the academic goals.
