How do I set unit duration or pacing in a Curriculum Map?

This is part of our Curriculum Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

This article is a guide on how you can set the unit duration or pace of your curriculum map. Unit Duration, or Pacing, is the suggested amount of time that teachers will need to successfully teach each unit. It will also schedule the unit to that number of lessons when teachers assign the map to their subject. Click here for more information on how to attach a curriculum map to a subject within Planboard.

You can edit from either Unit Content view or from Pacing Guide view. This article will cover both approaches.
