Our Outcomes
•
Explore backward design principles and common
misunderstandings about design;
•
Identify desired results for unit of study and draft a complete
unit to include an assessment and learning plan;
•
Review unit of study applying design standards
•
Strategize about how to collaboratively develop multiple
units, courses, and programs as you move forward
ASCD Allen Parish 2010; Rye and Herold

Tasks:

Design a unit for a period of instruction between 1-6 weeks.

Review units by applying design standards and offering
feedback to improve design.

Explore what an Understanding by Design classroom looks
like.

Essential Questions:

Why Understanding by Design? Why 21st Century Skills?

What strategies are there for evaluating and revising existing
UbD units?

What is a performance task?


To what extent can we truly implement a performance task into
every unit of instruction?
How can we assess/grade performance tasks reliably and
practically?

What does a UbD classroom actually look like?

How do we continue to move forward professionally?
Why are we here?
What do you want
your students to
remember about
your class ten,
twenty years from
now?

+What is Understanding?
 Understanding

Understanding

Big ideas make meaning of the learning and permit transfer

Transfer is the key evidence of understanding (or lack of it)
Good design

best done “backward” from the desired understanding

Given the understanding we seek, we ask: what follows
for assessment and for student learning?
ASCD Allen Parish 2010; Rye and Herold
7
+ Designing for understanding:
“Understanding is never
a passive possession of
information or mere
automaticity of skill, but
the capacity to act
wisely, decisively and
effectively.”
--
ASCD Allen Parish 2010; Rye and Herold
Schooling by Design (2007)

+ What is ‘understanding’?
- really ‘getting it’?

What does understanding as a goal require of 
‘Designs’ - our planning?

Learning and teaching activities?

Assessment and feedback to learners?
 How
do we achieve understanding
by design vs. ‘good fortune’?

Three stages of backward design
1. What should students be able to
DO with their learning?
2. What IS valid evidence of ability to
meet the long-term transfer goal?
3. What learning experiences
& instruction do students need
to get there?

Typically:
1. Identify content to be acquired
Without checking for
alignment
2. Brainstorm lessons to teach the content
Without checking for

What the research says
“Research on expertise suggests that a
superficial coverage of many topics in the
domain may be a poor way to help students
develop the competencies that will prepare
them for future learning and work.”

‘Enduring Understanding’
Learners must Acquire and Make
Meaning out of information in the
service of understanding and
Transferring it.
ASCD Allen Parish 2010; Rye and Herold
+
Acquire information
A fact is a fact; a skill is a skill. We acquire each in turn.
Acquisition does not yield understanding;
it is necessary but not sufficient.
If I have skills and facts, it does not
mean that I understand.
I cannot, however, understand without
those skills and facts.
ASCD Allen Parish 2010; Rye and Herold
+
Constructing meaning
What do these facts imply?
When would I use this skill (or not)?
What is their sense, import, value?

A study of how plants make food was conducted with students
from elementary school through college [to] probe
understanding of the role of soil and photosynthesis in plant
growth and of the primary source of food in green plants
(Wandersee, 1983). . . Students from all levels displayed several
misconceptions:
 Soil is the plants’ food.
 Plants get their food from the roots and store it in the leaves
 Chlorophyll is the plant’s blood”

+ Example of a misunderstanding in
Science
“Some students think that ‘cold’ is being transferred
from a colder to warmer object…students often
think that objects cool down or release heat
spontaneously… Even after instruction, students
don’t always give up their naive notion that some
substances (e.g. flour) cannot heat up or that metals
get hot because they “attract heat” etc.” (pp. 337-8)

Implications for instruction
Address predictable misunderstandings
by design.
-Provide real or simulated experiences related to
the desired understandings.
-Build in checks for understanding and
misunderstanding along the way.
-Require students to revisit/rethink what they
thought they understood.
-Final assessments should check to see if common
misunderstandings have been overcome.
