  9. 9. Read Distinguishing characteristics of understandings excerpt from Understanding by Design. Index Card Side A - Quote “The understanding will need to be uncovered, because it is abstract and not immediately obvious” (p.127). Save the last quote! Index Card Side B - Response An enduring understanding can not be transferred through a statement or an explanation. I need to design learning experiences that uncover the understanding. In the example of understandings related to effective stories I may begin with having students think about their favorite stories and reflecting on what makes them captivating. We can build a word web then have students write a response explaining what elements of stories really capture their interest. In this we will uncover some of the understandings related to effective stories.
