Pacing Guide Worksheet.


A pacing guide leads an instructor through a predetermined curriculum order, while aligning to district calendars and standards. Pacing guides not only set the stride for long-term planning but give teachers an overall look at the skills and knowledge students need to be successful.

For this assignment, create a pacing guide that is aligned to your district’s calendar, school goals and policies, and standards. Based on your current curriculum or the curriculum in your field experience classroom, create a yearlong pacing guide.

Include the following:

  • Unit topics
  • Developmentally appropriate readiness skills and knowledge aligned from the previous, current, and next grade levels
  • Assessed district and state standards
  • Weekly pacing including dates such as testing, holidays, breaks, and school events/activities

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
