These are the

facts, vocabulary, dates, places, names, and examples

you want students to memorize. The know is massively forgettable.
Facts (The Civil War began in 1861; Emily Dickinson was a recluse) Vocabulary (entropy, equilateral triangle, hyperbole)

Teaching facts in isolation is like trying to pump water uphill. -Carol Tomlinson

KNOW (Facts, Vocabulary,

There are 50 states in the US Thomas Jefferson 1492 The Continental Divide

The multiplication tables

Major Concepts and Subconcepts

These are the written statements of truth, the core to the meaning(s) of the lesson(s) or unit. These are what connect the parts of a subject to the students life and to other subjects. It is through the understanding component of instruction that we teach our students to truly grasp the point of the lesson or the experience. Understandings are purposeful. They focus on the key ideas that require students to understand information and make connections while evaluating the relationships that exist within the understandings.

UNDERSTAND (Essential Truths that give

Meaning to the Topic)

Begin with I want students to understand THAT

Multiplication is another way to do addition People migrate to meet basic needs All cultures contain the same elements expressed differently Voice reflects the author


Basic skills of any discipline Thinking skills Skills of planning, becoming independent learners, critical and creative thinking
Aim for Authenticity: The skill portion encourages the students to think and act like the professionals who use the knowledge and skill daily as a matter of how they do business. This is what it means to be like a doctor, a scientist, a writer or an artist.

Write a unified paragraph Compare and contrast Draw conclusions Examine varied perspectives

Work collaboratively
Develop a timeline Use maps as data

With your group

Write all of the KUDs for the following set of standards using the KUD mat:

(Remember the KUDs represent your desired results for this unit. Stage 1- p. 16 UbD)
Math Standard 4.2

The student will:

Compare and order fractions and mixed numbers; Represent equivalent fractions; and Identify the division statement that represents a fraction

4.2 KUD document

What do you notice about the KUDs? How does this chart compare to the chart created in your group?

Essential Questions
Open-ended questions that are thoughtprovoking and interpretive.

Essential Questions are at he core of your content and often leads to, or requires further investigation. Essential Questions:
Have no obvious right answer Raise more questions Address concepts that are key to the discipline

4. A triangle that has two equal sides and two equal angles is known as: A) scalene B) square C) lopsided D) oval

Part 2: Application (Goal: Students will understand that written language can be used to persuade or sway somebody to a new way of thinking.)
Part Two: Your teacher is considering the option of allowing you to do your final project in small groups, as opposed to doing the work independently. Write a 3-5 sentence persuasive paragraph to convince your teacher whether or not to offer this option.

Part Two: Fill in the missing words. Use the context to determine the word that best fits: Persuasive texts are a part of our daily lives. Children learn at an early age to express their __________, or points of view. Television, newspapers, radio, and internet make strong use of persuasive ___________ and in our daily exchanges, we use persuasive language to express opinions to try to ______________ others. Learning how to create systematic and organized persuasive texts empowers young people to ________________ an opinion, be involved in decision making, and be critical users of the English _____________________.

Aligning Assessments with Learning Outcomes

Alignmentdegree to which measurements of learning outcomes match how and what we teach

Think back to the 3 stages of UbD unit planning. What elements of planning occurred in Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3?


UbD= Understanding by DESIGN

The tasks to which students are asked to respond on an assessment are not arbitrary. They must be carefully designed to provide evidence that is linked to the cognitive model of learning and to support the kinds of inferences and decisions that will be based on the assessment results.

National Research Council. Knowing what students know: The science and design of educational assessment . Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press, 2001, p. 47.


Assessments of Transfer
Can learners do something with what theyve learned outside of the school/classroom setting? Meaning making is essential, but if learners dont transfer that meaning into unfamiliar contexts that meaning is lost. Assessments of transfer must:
Have a novel look and feel Context that requires learners to tailor prior learning to a concrete situation Must make these judgments and applications independently

Long Term Transfer Goals

What is Transfer in UbD speak?

Why and when these are transfer goals

Real life communication to affect some kind of change, not completing a graphic organizer, following a 5-paragraph essay formula
Problem solving without following rote formulas, step-by-step procedures, or plugging in numbers into a memorized algorithm Consider the relevance of events past and present to make personal judgments and apply them (voting) Successfully communicate in global society in real world situations when teachers arent available

Writing in various genres, for various audiences, in order to explain, entertain, persuade, explain a technical task, or challenge a prevailing idea (satire)
Mathematics- recognize and solve never before seen problems. Figuring out what is known, unknown, and what the problem demands History- Discuss the applicability of past, current, and future events World languages- communicate effectively in target language (speed, dialect, accent, customs)

Two-Question Validity Test

How likely is it that a student could do well on the assessment by:
Making clever guesses with accurate recall but limited or no understanding? Making a good faith effort with lots of hard work and enthusiasm but limited understanding? Producing a lovely product or an engaging and articulate performance but with limited understanding?

False positive understandings

Create a diorama that shows what we learned about Christopher Columbus, the New World Explorer from Spain

Two-Question Validity Test:

How likely is it that a student could do poorly on the assessment by:
Failing to meet the requirements while nonetheless revealing a good understanding of the ideas? Not being skilled at certain aspects of the task but those skills are not central to the goal (e.g., require acting or computer ability unrelated to stage 1 goals)

False negative understandings

One student has written language disability- task is to write how pioneer life is similar to and different from life today.

How do you know its a good assessment?

Stage 2
The specified assessments provide valid evidence of all desired results; that is, Stage 2 aligns with Stage 1 The specified assessments include authentic transfer tasks based on one or more facets of understanding The specified assessments provide sufficient opportunities for students to reveal their Stage 1 goals Evaluative criteria for each assessment are aligned to desired results
KEY 3=Meets the standard; 2=partially meets the standard; 1= does not yet meet the standard

Today we will focus on these aspects

Six Facets of Understanding

Explain Interpret Apply & Adjust Use what is learned in unique situations, go beyond context and apply to other contexts and situations Perspectiv e See the big picture, consider, various points of view, take a stance Empathy SelfKnowledge Show metacogniti ve awareness, reflect on meaning of new experiences and learning, aware of own habits of mind and biases

Make connections , draw inferences, express in OWN words, teach others

Make sense of, provide a personal dimension to ideas & events, make it personal through images, stories, etc., turn data into information

Perceive sensitively, can walk in anothers shoes

Informal Checks for Understanding

Examples of Performance Tasks:

Explanation Interpretation Write letters home describing what the pioneer life is really like compared to you expected. Compare English and Spanish versions of Cinderella to determine if language influences meaning. Adapt events from history that contributed to societal reaction to the Civil Rights Movement by recreating a scene and presenting to a group.



Debate whether the First Amendment could negatively impact a group by participating in a roundtable discussion with classmates.
Create a diary that reflects the day in the life of an electron. Write a self-assessment reflecting on your writing process.
