I thought these questions were excellent when assessing the quality of an existing unit plan (also mentioned in the "Planning the Best Curriculum Unit Ever" post.

1. Is the unit aligned with standards, objectives, and guidelines?
2. Is there a balance of teaching strategies, learning strategies, and authentic tasks that engage and meet the needs of diverse learners?
3. Have I sequenced the activities clearly?
4. Do the formative and summative assessments measure the knowledge and skills identified in the objectives

What other questions do you ask? Any other unit-planning tools you use?
