UbD Example
Stage One Desired Results
Established Goal A Language Arts Example: Understandings • I can read difficult words by sounding them out • I can read difficult words by figuring out the meaning of the base word and any prefixes or suffixes Essential Question What do good readers do when they don’t know a word?
Established Goal A Math Example: Understandings • I can use one-digit addition to solve a math problem • I can use one-digit subtraction to solve a math problem Essential Question How do good problem solvers use numbers to answer this question?
Stage Two Assessment Evidence
Assessment Rubric: I can name the uppercase letters of the alphabet.
Math Self-Assessment Record 1 : I don’t yet understand how to do this skill 2 : I need more practice with this skill 3 : I understand how to do this skill and am successful most of the time 4 : I understand how to do this skill and am ready to be challenged
