Curriculum Design Project Assignment Instructions

The candidate will design a unit of instruction that follows the Understanding by Design (UbD) template which incorporates the three stages of Desired Results, Assessment Evidence, and Learning Plan. This should be a robust assignment that incorporates what you have learned throughout the course. 

To complete this project, use the Curriculum Design Project Template. This assignment should be a minimum of six pages, single-spaced utilizing Times New Roman size 12 font. The page requirement does not include assignment instructions, assessments, or grading rubrics that the candidate must include within either Stage 3: Learning Plan or as an appendix.

The candidate is welcome to create this project from scratch or utilize a unit they have personally developed, as long as it meets the criteria of the template/UbD model. A Curriculum Design Project Example has been provided for your reference. Do not take or use a unit or lesson plans from the example or any another source to complete this assignment.

Complete the template in its entirety and include the following:

·       Stage 1: Desired Results (1-2 pages)

o   Unit Title

o   Established Goals

o   KUD Objectives: Know, Understanding, Do

o   Essential Questions

·       Stage 2: Assessment Evidence (2-3 pages)

o   Performance Tasks and Assessments

o   Key Criteria

o   Other Evidences

·       Stage 3: Learning Plan (3-4 pages)
