PD Online: The Common Core Standards and the Understanding by Design Framework: Mathematics

The Formative Assessment and the Common Core Standards: Mathematics course is designed to inform participants about assessment practices to maximize student success within the context of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). In The Common Core Standards and the Understanding by Design Framework: Mathematics, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins explain the relationship between this standards movement and the Understanding by Design® (UbD™) template for planning units of instruction. The nature of the Common Core standards and their focus on understanding and practical application of knowledge and skills coincides with the way the UbD™ framework was designed. Through in-depth video presentations, McTighe and Wiggins will demonstrate why it is essential to closely read the standards document and show you alternative ways to unpack and group standards to optimize your instructional strategies. They introduce the new Template 2.0 as a practical and proven tool for unit planning with the standards. McTighe then covers each of the three stages of unit planning and walk through the thinking processes required to carefully and thoughtfully plan units in math. The exemplar unit plan calls for acquisition, meaning-making, and transfer of knowledge and skills identified in the Common Core standards. Learn more about PD Online here.
