Do you know where you are going? End in Mind Curriculum Design
End in Mind Curriculum Design To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now so that the steps you take are always in the right direction. -Stephen R.

What should students be able to K now, U nderstand and D o at the end of this unit?
What are my “ transfer goals ”? These are related to but not limited by the SOLs.
What are the essential questions that students will revisit, discuss, and debate during this unit?
Stage One – Desired Results is the same for all students
From the ACPS Pacing Guide SOL 1.11 The student will recognize the symbols and traditional practices that honor and foster patriotism in the United States by a) identifying the American flag, bald eagle, Washington Monument, and Statue of Liberty; b) demonstrating respect for the American flag by learning the Pledge of Allegiance.

2. There are formulas that can be used to calculate the volume of solids.
3. The surface area of a three-dimensional object is the sum of the areas of all its faces.
4. The volume of a three-dimensional object is the number of unit cubes that would fill the object.
5. A change in one dimension of an object results in predictable changes in area and/or volume.
6. A constant ratio exists between corresponding lengths of sides of similar figures.
7. Proportional reasoning is integral to comparing attribute measures in similar objects.
Procedural Knowledge (Do): Students will be able to:
1. Find the total surface area of cylinders, prisms, pyramids, cones, and spheres, using the appropriate formulas.
2. Calculate the volume of cylinders, prisms, pyramids, cones, and spheres, using the appropriate formulas.
3. Solve problems, including real-world problems, involving total surface area and volume of cylinders, prisms, pyramids, cones, and spheres as well as combinations of three-dimensional figures. Calculators may be used to find decimal approximations for results.
4. Compare ratios between side lengths, perimeters, areas, and volumes, given two similar figures.
5. Describe how changes in one or more dimensions affect other derived measures (perimeter, area, total surface area, and volume) of an object.
6. Describe how changes in one or more measures (perimeter, area, total surface area, and volume) affect other measures of an object.
7. Solve real-world problems involving measured attributes of similar objects.
From the Curriculum Framework SOL 1.11 The student will recognize the symbols and traditional practices that honor and foster patriotism in the United States by a)identifying the American flag, bald eagle, Washington Monument, and Statue of Liberty; b)demonstrating respect for the American flag by learning the Pledge of Allegiance. Identify and explain symbols. Gather, classify, and interpret information.

W – Where are we headed? H – How will you hook and hold my attention? E – How will you equip me for success? R – How will you encourage me to refine, revisit, rethink, revise ? E – How will I be asked to self- evaluate ? T – How will you tailor instruction for me? O - How will I be helped to move from acquisition to transfer ?
