1
Integrator Session 1 Summer 2009
  • Unit Design

2
Integrator Enduring Understandings
  • Integrating technology into higher order
    curriculum improves student achievement.
  • Todays students are digital learners who learn
    best from a digital teacher.

3
Integrator Essential Questions
  • How do you create a unit following Understanding
    by Design principles?
  • What transforms discrete learning into an
    enduring understanding?
  • How do you create an essential question?
  • How does assessment inform instruction?
  • How do I incorporate technology to improve
    student achievement?

4
Inspiration Template
  • Integrator process
  • Process template
  • Program summary
  • Exemplars
  • Unit
  • iMovie/Website
  • Student Examples

5
Foundation of your Unit
  • Unit concept - something new or previously
    developed and needs technology
  • Working from the Power Standards, identify the
    concepts, processes and skills students
    historically struggle with on MAP.
  • Connect Power Standards to the curriculum and
    instructional materials.
  • Follow the unit design template to design
    instruction that addresses the data.
  • Monitor progress through classroom assessments.

6
Enduring Understanding for Unit
  • Transforming concept into Enduring
    Understanding/Big Idea
  • Enduring understandings represent a big idea
    having enduring value beyond the classroom. They
    are umbrella-like organizerswhat you want your
    students to remember thirty years from now-and
    longer. Wiggins, McTighe

7
Aspects of Enduring Understanding
  • Go beyond discrete facts or skills to focus on
    larger concept, principles or processes
  • Give meaning and importance to facts and skills
  • Applicable to new situations within or beyond the
    subject
  • Written in terms and vocabulary students can
    understand
  • Beyond knowledge, affective component, Aha
    moment, moral of the story

8
How to Generate Enduring Understanding
  • List major ideas concepts that come to mind
    relative to a course or topic
  • Analyze the intent of your objectives and
    benchmarks
  • Synthesize the related concepts to a more
    generalized big idea
  • Project into the mind of your student in the
    future

9
Concept to Enduring Understanding
  • Exploration
  • Planets
  • Native American Culture
  • Martin Luther King
  • World War II
  • Rainforest
  • Number Patterns
  • American symbols

10
Your turn!
  • What concept have you thought about as the
    foundation for your unit?
  • What are the possible enduring understandings for
    that concept?
  • Use Aspects of Enduring Understanding as Litmus
    Test

11
What are Essential Questions?
  • Critical, global, abstract, overarching questions
    that drive teaching and learning within a unit of
    study. They
  • press learners to think beyond what they already
    know
  • are the focus of learning and the central
    questions of inquiry
  • represent the understanding that teachers most
    want their students to take away from a unit or
    activity.

12
What Essential ?s do for Curriculum Development
  • Create a focus for the unit, go to the heart of
    the discipline
  • Point clearly and explicitly toward a big idea
  • Point to key inquiries and core ideas of a
    discipline
  • Reveal richness and complexity of a subject
  • Enhance, encourage and enable cross-discipline
    connections

13
Characteristics of Essential Questions
  • Have no one obvious right answer
  • Are open-ended, non-judgmental, meaningful and
    motivational
  • Framed to provoke and sustain student interest
  • Require you to make a decision or plan a
    course of action
  • Avoid What is questions

14
Sample Curriculum with EQs
  • Using Clusty.com or Ask.com do a search for
    Essential question ________

15
Your turn!
  • Divide the unit into lesson concepts
  • Draft an essential question for each concept
  • Test each question

16
Test your essential questions?
  • Cannot be answered satisfactorily in one sentence
  • Concept-based, not fact based
  • Open-ended
  • Provocative and multi-layered
  • Higher Order-analysis, synthesis, evaluation

17
Lesson Topics
  • Essential question should be focus of each lesson
  • Foundation questions may be used for lower level
    skills taught in first lesson of unit
  • Foundation question is one whose answer provides
    the facts used to answer the essential question.

    preserved
  • FQ- What is a wetland?
