An essential part of moving forward with the Understanding by Design® (UbD™) framework is to make sure its principles and strategies are reflected in all aspects of your school improvement efforts, including curriculum planning, leadership, teacher professional development, and action research. Here’s a book designed to help you. From creating your mission and goals to identifying desired results, UbD authors Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe describe how to focus your school on the goals of understanding and accomplishment-based learning. Dozens of action ideas, curriculum frameworks, and assessment rubrics help you use backward design and other UbD processes to determine the evidence for your success and to plan improvement steps in instruction and leadership roles. (ASCD book, 2007) 8" x 10", 285 pages. Also available as an e-book!
