This online course will help you understand and apply various aspects of Understanding by Design (UbD). Beginning with an overview of the principles of unit design presented in the UbD framework, this course will then help you develop a unit based on content standards of your choice. You will start by “unpacking" your state or district standards to create enduring understandings, essential questions, and enabling knowledge objectives. Next, you will create appropriate assessments to develop a “photo album" of student achievement. Finally, you will complete your unit by designing instructional activities to reinforce your desired results, ensuring that all your students demonstrate genuine understanding, rather than exhibiting only learning based on knowledge and recall.
