  Description What is understanding? What is the relationship between knowledge and understanding? What does "teaching for understanding" look like? Why is deeper understanding important in the current educational climate which emphasizes standardized assessments? These and other important questions will be explored as participants design, develop and refine a cohesive unit plan based on the principles found in Understanding by Design (UbD). In the UbD classroom, there are high expectations and incentives for all students while exploration of big ideas and essential questions is differentiated, so students who are able delve more deeply into the subject matter than others. This workshop is appropriate for instructors from pre-high school through college levels. Participants will receive a copy of UbD, 2nd Ed. Note: participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops to the workshop, but a limited number of computers may be available? Contact the organizer ( if you will need one.
