About This Book

ASCD Bestseller! Wiggins and McTighe provide an expanded array of practical tools and strategies for designing curriculum, instruction, and assessments that lead students at all grade levels to genuine understanding.

How do you know when students understand? Can you design learning experiences that make it much more likely that students understand content and apply it in meaningful ways?

Thousands of educators have used the Understanding by Design (UbD) framework to answer these questions and create more rigorous, engaging curriculums. Now, this expanded 2nd edition gives you even more tools and strategies for results-oriented teaching: * An improved template for creating curriculum units based on the breakthrough "backward design" method.
* More specific guidelines on how to frame the "big ideas" you want students to understand.
* Better ways to develop the "essential questions" that form the foundation of high-quality curriculum and assessment.
* An expanded toolbox of instructional approaches for obtaining the desired results of a lesson.
* More examples, across all grade levels and subjects, of how schools and districts have used the UbD framework to maximize student understanding.

Educators from kindergarten through college can get everything they need—guidelines, stages, templates, and tips—to start designing lessons, units, and courses that lead to improved student performance and a more stimulating experience for students and teachers alike.
