    Process Grids Galore

    One of our favorite features from our new BFFs at Uplevel are the completed Process Grids. They've built ALL of the Next Generation Science (NGS) and History-Social Science (HSS) units for K-5.

    These are GLAD units on steroids with a complete scope and sequence for all the new standards. We're excited as an organization to have this valuable resource to use for our Classroom Demonstrations when providing inspirational PD (professional development). It allows us to focus on our 'how' because our 'what' is expertly-designed by Uplevel.
