    • ASSESSMENT COMPONENT What data or information is needed & how will it be collected?
    • Questions to Ask How will I create an environment where students are most likely to learn based on the learning outcomes? How will students demonstrate learning? What evidence of learning is available? (We’ll talk more about this after the break!)
    • Madeline Hunter Template Anticipatory Set (what will set the stage?) Objectives/Purpose Teaching Input Modeling Checking for Understanding Questioning Strategies Guided Practice Closure Independent Practice
    • Understanding by Design (UbD) “Backwards” design What do you want students to learn? (outcomes) How will you know if they’ve learned it? (assessment) What activities will help them learn and, at the same time, provide assessment data? (teaching method) Wiggins, G. & McTighe, J. (1998). Understanding by Design. Alexandria, VA: ASCD. (p. 15)
    • UbD Lesson Plan Template Vital Information Stage 1: Desired Results Established goals Understandings / misconceptions Essential questions Knowledge Skills Stage 2: Assessment Evidence What authentic performance tasks will students demonstrate? By what criteria will performances be judged? How will students reflect upon and self asses their learning? Stage 3: Learning Plan What learning experiences and instruction will enable students to achieve the desired results?
    • Library Workshop Lesson Plan (Oakleaf) Outcomes to be taught & assessed How will you know the outcomes are achieved? “Big Picture” learning that transfers to life transferable learning skills Teaching Strategies Comprehension Checks Transitions Learning Assessments Short term and long term Photo Credit: woodleywonderworks via Compfight cc
    • 5 E’s Engagement How will you capture their interest? Exploration “Big idea” conceptual questions to focus students Explanation Questions and activities to solicit student explanations Elaboration How will students develop understanding of the concepts and apply knowledge? Evaluation How will students demonstrate they have achieved the learning outcomes?
