Understanding by Design
How can you design learning experiences that make it much more likely that students will understand content and be able to apply it in meaningful ways? Since 1998, thousands of educators around the world have used the Understanding by Design® (UbD) Framework to answer that question and create more rigorous and engaging curricula. In this design network, participants will explore the key ideas of UbD and apply practical and proven design tools and templates for unit design.
- In-person meetings will take place in Long Island.
- Day School teachers from across New York are welcome to join.
