Meeting Standards by Design: Embedding Standards in the UbD™ Framework for Curriculum, Assessment, and Learning
Recorded May 23, 2012
Standards are like building codes: you have to meet them, but they are not the point of the design. The point of a curriculum is to honor both the school’s mission and important learning goals. So, a course or unit should provide rich, engaging, and rigorous ways of meeting the Common Core State Standards and assessing against them, not merely touch on related content. Grant Wiggins will present this thought-provoking and practical webinar, providing practical strategies to ensure that the standards are validly addressed in an engaging, effective, and robust curriculum.
