Understanding by Design

Like many international schools, AAS-Sofia uses Understanding by Design for our curriculum framework. It was selected for a variety of reasons, including that it seemed the perfect marriage for teaching standards with an inquiry approach.

The best overview of UbD is a 13-page white paper available here. Another excellent resource is an article by Jay McTighe and Elliott Seif called Teaching for Meaning and Understanding: A Summary of Underlying Theory and Research.
