Field Notes on Backwards Design

Field Notes on Backwards Design | ART ED: Making Changes | Scoop.it

I am a convert. It did not take long and it took no work on the part of anyone other than me to see how much sense it makes for us to use a backwards design model for teaching and learning. I think it is important though, in this era of standardized testing, to make the clear distinction between backwards planning and teaching to the test.


Backwards design, as Wiggins and McTighe describe it, asks teachers first to consider, "What is worthy and requiring of understanding"? This is not the same thing as, "What will be on the test?" They go on to help us see that the concepts, skills and information "worthy of understanding" are embedded in essential questions, enduring understandings and critical thinking skills. Each of those, when thoughtfully designed, spring from standards.
