The plan provides key information about Wit & Wisdom in Sync’s organization and how the Great Minds teacher and the classroom teacher share instruction.
- The Learn Anywhere Plan Module Overview shows how the full module has been streamlined and is organized by Focusing Question Arc.
- Each Learn Anywhere Plan Day shows the sequence of instruction and how the Great Minds® teacher and the classroom teacher share instruction. To plan effectively, classroom teachers should review the Teacher Edition for lesson-level detail.
