Transcript of Backward Design

a Wiggins & McTighe model Backward Design Backward Design This design model introduced by Wiggins and McTighe
Understanding by Design (UbD) - Written in 1998 Stage 1 -
Identify desired results What should students know, understand, and be able to do?
What enduring understandings are needed?
What are the essential questions? Call for clarity in all the content. Stage 2 -
Determine acceptable evidence (create assessments) to what extend do my assessments provide fair, valid, reliable, and sufficient measures of the desired results?
Am I using formal and informal assessments?
Is my assessment linked to the learning objects? Stage 3 -
Plan learning experience and instruction Presented by: Brenda Quintanilla What is meant by: Enduring Understanding Examples: The Constitution European History 3 Stages of design A curriculum design process that suggests learning should be planned with the final assessment in mind. http://tinyurl.com/744bqjj Backward design template: Questions to ask yourself Questions to ask yourself Questions to ask yourself What can I do to make the work maximally engaging and effective?
If the “content” is the answer, then what were the original questions?
What content should we cover? What content needs to be “uncovered”? In all that
we teach.... How can we make sure our students learn the most important stuff?

From a student's point of view....
What is worth understanding? Traditional Curriculum Design Teacher focuses on:
how they will teach the content
what materials they will use to teach
what they will ask the students to do Backward Design Teacher focuses on:
the purpose of the content
the desired end results
what learning objectives will be achieved Jay McTighe on the Backward Design Framework (Content focused design) (Results focused design) Advantages 1. Students stay on track!
2. Lessons are constructed with the
overall "goal" in mind!
3. Assessment designed before lesson planning! I know what you're thinking! Backward design template: Backward design template: http://tinyurl.com/744bqjj http://tinyurl.com/744bqjj http://tinyurl.com/744bqjj Backward design template: Include these elements:
G - goals
U - understandings
Q - questions
K - Knowledge
S - Skils Include these elements:
S - skills
T- tasks Include these elements:
L - learning activities whereto.. & In Summary Backward Design assures alignment of desired results, assessments, and learning activities (i.e., objectives are aligned).
Learning objectives do not mean you are "teaching to the test".
Backward Design is results focused, not content focused. Thank you Backward Design? What do you think?
