Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at teachers in grades K-16, this text presents a framework for the design of curriculum, assessment, and instruction that is focused on developing and deepening student understanding of important ideas. Consultants Wiggins and McTighe (both former classroom teachers) propose a "backward design" approach to planning that helps students meet standards without sacrificing bigger goals related to understanding. They also explain how individual units may be nested within a larger framework of courses and programs dealing with essential questions.
