Authentic Learning Experiences: A Real World Approach to Project-Based Learning by Dayna Laur

Lynn Erickson. Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom (2007)

Grant Wiggins and Jay McTigheUnderstanding by Design, Expanded 2nd Edition (2005) [Resource list + Google Books]

These books address developing quality units that are rigorous, relevant, and approachable for students. Wiggins and McTighe are widely known for their framework of unit design. Lynn Erickson’s approach, while similar, does an excellent job of transitioning philosophy/pedagogy to practical implementation, especially when developing driving questions based on Big Ideas. All of the authors provide an excellent structure for improving the quality of unit design and instruction.
