Backward Design (using Designing Rigorous Units of Instruction & ARRC model) (K-5)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Thinking about what to teach and how to teach it may dominate your thinking. The challenge is to first focus on the desired learning from which appropriate teaching will logically follow.
Too many teachers focus on the teaching and not the learning. If you’re ready to change that, then you’d enjoy this training. You will leave this training understanding why planning backward is best and gain knowledge on how to go through the backward design process. This training will be productive for teams to work together, whether there are two of you or an entire team, because there will be time to plan a unit using the backward design process. (If you are the only one from your team, you can work with teachers from your grade level.) Just think of the advantages of starting school with a math unit already designed!
