From the Back Cover:

The Understanding by Design Guide to Creating High-Quality Units offers instructional modules on the basic concepts and elements of Understanding by Design (UbD), the "backward design" approach used by thousands of educators to create curriculum units and assessments that focus on developing students' understanding of important ideas. The eight modules are organized around the UbD Template, version 2.0, and feature components similar to what is typically provided in a UbD design workshop, including

  • Discussion and explanation of key ideas in the module;
  • Guiding exercises, worksheets, and design tips;
  • Examples of unit designs;
  • Review criteria with prompts for self-assessment; and
  • A list of resources for further information.

This guide is intended for K-16 educators - either individuals or groups - who may have received some training in UbD and want to continue their work independently; those who've read Understanding by Design and want to design curriculum units but have no access to formal training; graduate and undergraduate students in university curriculum courses; and school and district administrators, curriculum directors, and others who facilitate UbD work with staff. Users can go through the modules in sequences or skip around, depending on their previous experience with UbD and their preferred curriculum design style or approach. Unit creation, planning, and adaptation are easier than ever with the accompanying downloadable resources, including the UbD template set up as a fillable PDF form, additional worksheets, examples, and FAQs about the module topics that speak to UbD novices and veterans alike.
