Finding ResourcesUnderstanding By Design: Stage 3

Now that you have written the outline of your unit, it is time to find resources that you can use to support your unit and flesh out your lessons.

why should we find resources
Why should we find resources?
  • We can find resources for:
      • Our students to use in completing the activities and culminating tasks that we already developed
      • Ourselves to use when we are writing units
  • Include your resource list on the last page of the UBD template.
textbooks for students to use
Textbooks – for students to use
  • Give students the basic information and overview of a subject
  • Allow students to see information as relative to time and place
  • Teach, review, and actively use the features of non-fiction when using the textbook
    • Table of Contents
    • Index
    • Bibliography
    • Glossary
    • Subheadings
    • Text and style changes (bold, italics, color, etc.)
  • Use the textbook as one of many tools, showing students how to use it as a jumping off point to find more and deeper information
