Understanding by design by Grant P Wiggins( Book )

50 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is understanding and how does it differ from knowledge? How can we determine the big ideas worth understanding? Why is understanding an important teaching goal, and how do we know when students have attained it? How can we create a rigorous and engaging curriculum that focuses on understanding and leads to improved student performance in today s high-stakes, standards-based environment? Authors Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe answer these and many other questions in this second edition of Understanding by Design. Drawing on feedback from thousands of educators around the world who have used the UbD framework since its introduction in 1998, the authors have greatly revised and expanded their original work to guide educators across the K 16 spectrum in the design of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. With an improved UbD Template at its core, the book explains the rationale of backward design and explores in greater depth the meaning of such key ideas as essential questions and transfer tasks. Readers will learn why the familiar coverage- and activity-based approaches to curriculum design fall short, and how a focus on the six facets of understanding can enrich student learning. With an expanded array of practical strategies, tools, and examples from all subject areas, the book demonstrates how the research-based principles of Understanding by Design apply to district frameworks as well as to individual units of curriculum. Combining provocative ideas, thoughtful analysis, and tested approaches, Understanding by Design, 2nd edition, offers teacher-designers a clear path to the creation of curriculum that ensures better learning and a more stimulating experience for students and teachers alike
Assessing student outcomes : performance assessment using the dimensions of learning model by Robert J Marzano( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Arabic and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors provide a brief introduction to the Dimensions of Learning instructional model and then explain how it relates to lifelong learning standards and the content standards developed for mathematics, science, and other subjects. They include numerous examples of performance tasks that help students meet the standards by requiring them to actively construct knowledge for themselves. Teachers will especially appreciate the book's many rubrics, which are four-point scales that teachers can use not only to assess student performance on various tasks related to the five dimensions of learning, but also to provide descriptive feedback that can help students improve their performance. The book is printed in an 8" x 10" format so readers can easily photocopy the rubrics and blank assessment forms in Part Two of the book

Unit creation, planning, and adaptation are easier than ever with the accompanying downloadable resources, including the Understanding by Design template set up as a fillable PDF form, additional worksheets, examples, and FAQs about the module topics that speak to Understanding by Design novices and veterans alike
Understanding by design handbook by Jay McTighe( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is understanding, and how does it differ from knowing? How will we know that students truly understand and can apply their knowledge in meaningful ways? How might we design our courses and units to emphasize understanding and 'uncoverage' rather than 'coverage'? These are questions that The Understanding by Design Handbook guides users in answering. The handbook is the companion book to Understanding by Design (ASCD, 1998). Understanding by Design provides the conceptual foundation for a theory of understanding that is based on six facets of understanding. The handbook offers the practical side: a unit planning template, worksheets, exercises, design tools, design standards and tests, and a peer review process for learning and applying the ideas in Understanding by Design. Following the logic of the authors' backward design approach, handbook materials show users how to plan curriculum, assessment, and instruction. The handbook was developed to assist educators interested in designing units and courses of study that focus on developing and deepening students' understanding. It is also intended to serve as a resource for undergraduate and graduate-level coursework and in-service professional development. Various users, including teachers (elementary through graduate levels), school-based administrators, curriculum directors, subject matter specialists, staff developers, and assessment-evaluation personnel, will benefit from these practical and proven ideas and resources" -- Back cover

Assessing learning in the classroom : a report from Professional Standards and Practice by Jay McTighe( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A variety of methods are examined that teachers from preschool to graduate school levels can use in assessing their students; the common principles underlying classroom assessment are explored. The first principle is that the primary purpose of classroom assessment is to inform teaching and improve learning. A second principle is that multiple sources of information are necessary when assessing learning in the classroom. A third principle of classroom assessment concerns validity, reliability, and fairness. Once these principles are accepted, the selection of particular assessment methods should be based on desired learning outcomes, the purpose of the assessment, and audience for which it is intended. Assessment approaches that might be used include selected response items of the sort presented in multiple-choice, true-false, and matching tests and for performance-based approaches that include constructed responses, product assessment, performances, and process-focused assessment. In addition to making choices about classroom assessment methods, teachers should consider options for evaluating student work and for communicating assessment results. Various scales and reporting processes are discussed. An appendix contains a glossary of classroom assessment terms. (Contains 6 figures and 22 references.) (Sld)

In this keynote session (from the 13 October 2010, On Excellence in Teaching Summit), Jay McTighe helps participants to understand the three stages of backward design: identify desired results, determine acceptable evidence, plan learning experiences and instruction.
