This course establishes a comprehensive way for teachers to engage in unit planning and instructional design. Participants integrate assessment into their planning and crate a sequence of learning experiences that logically and meaningfully help students meet required learning goals. In addition, participants align their instructional design to state and local standards.
Participants will be able to:
• Examine the three stages of the Understanding by Design (UbD) model
• Compare and contrast the UbD framework with the one they are currently using
• Support the meaningful context of a lesson by identifying the "essential questions" students will focus on
• Complete a unit plan that incorporates all three stages of the UbD framework
