Artifact 12 a powerpoint on understanding by design

  • Artifact 12A PowerPoint on Understanding by Design.

  • This artifact was developed during my graduate class School Curriculum: Elementary EDE 6205 Fall 2006.

  • My role in producing this project was as a member of a group. I was responsible for gathering research and contributing to the research base. In addition, I developed this PowerPoint presentation for the group.

  • 100 A with positive feedback.

  • This project addresses the following Florida Educational Leadership Standards:

    • Standard 2: Instructional Leadership - The principal promotes a positive learning culture, provides an effective instructional program and applies best practices to student learning, especially in the area of reading and other foundational skills.

  • Reflection: I learned a great deal about developing curriculum that is meaningful to student learning. Charlotte County utilizes Understanding by Design so I was familiar with it. I developed a deeper understanding for this curriculum model through this project.
