  4. 4. IDENTIFYING THE BIG IDEA What student should know and be able to do to master the standard Organize learning into smaller pieces to organize the general content Guide teacher and student to discover what is essential and universal
  5. 5. IDENTIFYING THE BIG IDEA Types of learning include  Major Concepts  Themes  Issues  Processes  Assumptions  Perspectives These are connected and should be fully understood
  6. 6. IDENTIFYING ENDURINGUNDERSTANDINGS A declaration or generalization specifying what students should understand about the Big Idea  Generalization = “Moral of the Story”  Helps to understand the complexity of standard  Defines what you should remember in the long term
  7. 7. WRITING ESSENTIAL AND KEYQUESTIONS Forms structure for content Gives cues about how to inquire into essential meanings and understanding

  9. 9. KEY QUESTIONS Address each of the elements of the unit Provide essential understanding in form of questions to be answered Sequenced so the learning flows
  10. 10. IDENTIFYING KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS Knowledge – what students should know once they have mastered standard  Definitions, Formulas, Rules, Principles, Sequence and Timelines, Critical Details, Key Facts, Events, Concepts Skills – what students should be able to do  Actions, Procedures, Thinking Skills, Research, Interpersonal/Group Skills, Study Skills, Psychomotor Skills, Basic Skills
  11. 11. TYPES OF ASSESSMENTS Selected Response Assessments Constructed Response Assessments Performance Response Assessments Informal Response Assessments
  12. 12. SELECTED RESPONSE -- TRUE/FALSE& MULITPLE CHOICE Most Common Best for Assessing Breath of Information Recall and Recognition – ability to apply knowledge or understanding of concepts and sequencing items Typically Written Format Students Need Good Reading Ability Can be Administered to a Large Group Easy to Score Definate Right and Wrong Can be Scored Automatically
  13. 13. CONSTRUCTED RESPONSE – FILL-IN-THE-BLANK & ESSAY Short Constructed Response Items Student Generated Responses Quick to Administer and Grade Efficiently Uses to Assess Content Understanding
  14. 14. PERFROMANCE ASSESSMENT –PRESENTATION & RHYTHMMOVEMENT Requires Student to Apply Learning to Task or Situation Demonstration of Knowledge Expected Vary in Complexity, Time Required for Completion, and Scope of Content Tasks Must be Meaningful & Relevant Must Use Knowledge & Skills being Learned Great Opportunity for Motivation and Innovation Adaptations & Accomodations Easy to Apply
  15. 15. INFORMAL ASSESSMENT –QUESTIONING & INTERVIEW Occur in Every Classroom, Every Day Teacher-to-Student or Student-to-Student May Have Specific & Precise Criteria Includes Self-Assessment and Self-Reflection
  16. 16. DESIGNING INSTRUCTIONALUNITS Key Design Question:  What learning experiences and teaching promote understanding, interest, and excellence? Design Considerations:  Research-based learning tools and teaching strategies Design Criteria:  Where is it going?  Hook, Explore & Equip, Rethink & Revise, Exhibit & Evaluate
