Can you explain to me the Understanding by Design Framework?
Sure. This framework is really great because it's goal is student understanding. Our students should make meaning out of "big ideas" and be able to transfer their learning in order for them to get the most out of our lessons!
So how do we create curriculum using this framework?
Let me briefly discuss the three stages of backward design...
Stage 1: Desired Results -What long term transfer goals do you have for your students? -What meanings should students be making from your lessons? -Which essential questions will be explored? -What new knowledge and skills will your students gain?
I enjoy learning so much more when I really understand the "big idea" of a lesson.
Me too. It helps me make connections and really understand why I am learning what it is i'm being taught.
Stage 2: Assessment Evidence -How can students show evidence of understanding these lessons through different performance tasks? -What other evidence can be collected from your students for other desired results?
Stage 3: Learning Plan -What experiences, activities, and lessons can lead your students in achieving their desired results and assessment success? -Is the learning plan supportive of student Acquisition, Meaning Making, and Transfer?
It shows that our teacher really cares about us when she makes sure we understand!
