When both you and your students know the destination (criteria), everyone becomes empowered to be responsible for the learning journey.
You no longer have to “hold all the cards” for successful learning. It becomes a shared responsibility. Your role is to consistently reinforce and expect the required understanding.
Remember, the premise of UbD is that all planning emerges from the criteria. It provides clarity for everyone.
…is approaching learning deeply, from the inside out.
Schellert, Datoo, Ediger and Panas, 2009
…you wonder about something and you want to know it—in fact you’re driven to know it because it’s intriguing, puzzling, fascinating, and/or personally meaningful to you.
Diane Parker, 2007
I know I am going to have K-2 next year and I would like to get my head around doing the 3 grades. I am hoping to meet with other K-2 teachers and work with them to come up with ideas of how to make things work effectively.
I am really hoping to get some practical ideas of how to deliver multiple curricula at the same time especially with elementary students who may have limited independent inquiry or research skills. I am going to the social studies multi-grade in-service later. Those are courses at the grade 3/4 level I am having difficulty with as I am doing them completely separately. Science is the other area of main concern I see for teaching in combination.
