CBE 3 Bender-Stone

  1. 1. Understanding by Design<br />A Review based on John L. Brown’s Making the Most of Understanding by Design<br />
  2. 2. Understanding By Design<br />Framework for curriculum design<br />Oriented toward development of student understanding<br />Focused on “Big Ideas” in content areas<br />
  3. 3. What Works<br />the common sense nature of principles and activities<br />potential power for overcoming a tendency in public education to teach to the test<br />ability to guide and inform educators’ efforts to unpack standards and to help all students develop a deep conceptual understanding of what they are studying.<br /> - Brown, J. (2004)<br />
  4. 4. Sound bites<br />
  5. 5. What’s Been Challenging<br />The need for educators to have time to think about and implement the process in their classrooms<br />The need to make UbD implementation a long-term initiative the involves all organizational stakeholders<br />The need to collect, analyze and disseminate achievement data related to high levels of UbD use.<br /> -Brown, J. (2004)<br />
  6. 6. Where To Go From Here<br />Because UbD now actually brings forth for all students many of the approaches formerly associated with gifted programming, I hope to see some effort to build in a way to address differentiation for high-ability learners in the future framework. That said, [finding] a way to address modifications for any learner with special needs would send a loud message that high-quality learning is for all students, but here is a structure to use to “modify” access to this high-quality learning as needed.<br /> -Deborah Jo Alberti, assistant director of special and gifted education services for the Norfolk Public Schools in Norfolk, VA<br />
