Teacher Training Program on using Understanding by Design for Lesson Planning

Workshop Image

Module Details

Lesson planning is key for successful implementation of a good class and a robust academic program in a school. Most times teachers lay a lot of emphasis on the teaching materials and the classroom transactions. If lessons were planned keeping in mind the "the Big takeaway" and the "Assessments" that student will answer post the unit - lesson planning will become more meaningful and student centric learning will happen. This session outlines the Understanding by design principle or the Backward design principle of lesson planning. Understanding by Design, or UbD, is an educational planning approach. UbD is an example of backward design, the practice of looking at the outcomes in order to design curriculum units, performance assessments, and classroom instruction. UbD focuses on teaching to achieve understanding. It is advocated by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins in their Understanding by Design (1998).
