Allow multiple units for a lesson
I love being able to select a unit, however I teach from multiple books, so I would like to be able to specify which vocabulary unit we're on, for example, AND which literature unit we're on, AND which grammar unit we're on. :)
My curriculum (IB PYP) works in transdisciplinary way and I often teach a lesson that belongs in more than unit. I would love to be able to assign a lesson to more than one unit to reflect this, and make things easier when viewing one unit at a time.

It would be beneficial to be able to assign multiple units to a day's lesson. I often split up the day, and there it no point in creating 2 planbook classes for one middle school class period.
I echo the cross-curricular option. In first grade, many science and social studies topics are touched on in our Language Arts block and it would be nice to note that via a unit tag.
As a music teacher, I teach from several units at the same time in each lesson. It would be nice to be able to add them all to the same class.
This would be nice for my split class as well. I then can have a grade 5 unit happening at the same time as a grade 6 unit
Because my classes are blocks, I am often doing more than 1 type of lesson in a day. For example, I'll pair a literature lesson with a grammar lesson. For me, these are technically two different units. I'd like to be able to add both to the day without having to create 2 separate lessons.

You have by far the best planning software available. My school board really pushes cross curricular planning. Teaching Social Studies material as part of our Language material. I would be great to create a Language lesson that could then be added to a Social Studies Unit.

In order to simplify planning and integration across the curriculum, it would help if units were not linked to only one curriculum area (for example a science activity might include measurement or data management, a language lesson might tie into a Social studies unit)

Allow to add lessons to units from other classes.
Like being able to have an overarching 'Winter Unit" and be able to add math, theme, LA, social and science lessons to it without having to make a separate unit for each subject.
I am preparing plans for the start of the school year using Glencoe's Writer's Choice Text for Grade 8. The Weekly Planner model, which is fantastic aligns activities two units simultaneously. I need the functionality of being able to select more than one unit for a lesson plan daily, as the lesson is presented in two parts, with one or more activities from each of the two units.

For example, we do a large unit on using the dictionary. I would like to be able to create my own template with my unit/plans/lessons labeled Dictionary. I need to use this template in addition to literacy. We do the same for social studies. I would like to be able to label my unit/plans/lessons individually, ie, Maps, Native Americans, American Government, Colonial America etc.
