Curriculum Development Using UbD
December 2 @ 9:00 am - December 16 @ 12:00 pm
Live Video Conferencing (LVC) replaces much of our traditionally offered face-to-face sessions offered in previous years. For the convenience of our participants, these courses are offered in much like a live video webinar format (Live Video Conferencing) with a Statewide Field Team live instructor. They will be offered in short segments (three hours) every other week. Each series has a distinct day of the week. These will be identified in each session description. Materials presented in these courses are available to participants on the Statewide Field Team’s Online Learning Platform.
This course is offered electronically using live video conferencing equipment. Participants engage with each other and with the facilitator in live interactions from the convenience of their own district location using SWFT provided software. Participants must have a device with a camera and mic.
Once a district has developed and communicated its visions for high-quality instruction, how does it equip its teachers to realize them? This course provides participants with an approach to developing a system for curriculum and assessment using the Understanding by Design framework developed by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, a method to curriculum creation which empowers teachers to teach to the highest levels and prepares students to understand the purpose and necessity of the content in their own world.
