ABSTRACT
The understanding by design model (UbD) of curriculum development was put forth in 1998 by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe in their book Understanding by Design (UbD). Also called the backwards design model, UbD approaches curriculum development by beginning with desired learning outcomes and objectives, then working backwards to define assessment modalities and finally daily lessons and instructional activities. By developing curriculum in this manner, teachers are better able to clarify enduring understandings, essential questions, and unit questions towards the ends planning instruction and designing accurate and meaningful modes of assessment.
