Now that you have analyzed a complete backward design unit of instruction, you will focus on and begin drafting the first stage of the Backward Design Unit Plan due in Week 6.
Read the Weekly Lesson.
Use the Stage 1 Draft Design templates in Chapter 3, Figure 3.1 and Figure 3.2 as supports.
Open and save the UbD Unit Plan Template: Stage 1
Note that the Comments box in the template will serve as a place for you to remark upon any area of Stage 1 that you would like specific feedback from your instructor, such as those you are unsure about, ideas you have for connecting activities in Stage 2, or other concerns or questions you would like addressed.
Think of and commit to a specific population of learners (age or grade level) on whom your unit of instruction will focus. Keep in mind that your population, whether Pre-K-12th grades or adults in a training workshop or higher education course, should be learning something that is aligned to a specified standard: academic, skill-based, or professional.
Complete stage 1 of the UbD Unit Plan Template: Stage 1. Your backward design unit plan draft will be evaluated for the following components:
Lesson Information Your name, grade/age level, subject matter/content covered
Stage 1 Identify Desired Results
Goal/Standard at least one specific grade level or professional standard labeled and detailed for the subject matter identified at the top of the template
