Teachers will work to look at Unit Plans, Daily Lesson Plans and other documents, resources and collegial advice, input and feedback to redesign units as UbD and Project Based Learning Units.

Please bring a unit you plan to teach for the upcoming year and a device.

Update:  I will be providing a link here for you to take a survey.  This will help me in putting together different exemplars in subject matter and grade levels.   I'll also be posting the presentation shortly.

Essentially, we will:

1. Explain and Describe PBL
2.  Provide examples of PBL
3.  Discuss the 3 stages of Understanding by Design 
4.  Dig deeper into Essential Questions, Understandings and Assessments 
5.  Come out with a UbD that is PBL oriented - draft, draft, draft 

We have a lot packed into this presentation and workshop.  Come prepared with units, work, etc.
