Understanding by Design Chapter 11 – #sbarbook Mon 8/8/11

justbugnu           #sbarbook hello everyone. Ok I did my first blog. It’s about UbD wrkshp. It is at justbugnu.blogspot.com. Check it out n give thoughts. druinok                It’s #sbarbook time again – however, I haven’t read this week’s chapter – too busy prepping for back-to-school jrykse                   @druinok don’t think you missed much.  Beginning has some nice ideas on how to get started.  #sbarbook jrykse                   @druinok A couple nice examples of a unit design before and after applying UbD. #sbarbook druinok                @fourkatie heya 🙂  what are your thoughts on this chapter? #sbarbook fourkatie             late, but here for #sbarbook fourkatie             @druinok I’m 6 pages short of finishing, but it seems to be pulling it together. Liked the multiple entry points into design. #sbarbook fourkatie             it is more important to test against the backward design logic and standards as you play with ideas (cont…) #sbarbook fourkatie             rather than to think of design as a step-by-step process in which you doon’ tneed to look back” pg255 […]

Understanding by Design Chapter 10 – #sbarbook Mon 8/1

fourkatie          Anyone here for #sbarbook? jrykse                present #sbarbook druinok             @jrykse @fourkatie I’m here, but didn’t read 🙁 #sbarbook fourkatie          @druinok @jrykse I read this week. still need to go back and read last chapter. still struggling with this. #sbarbook jrykse                @fourkatie @druinok This chapter seemed to be “choose teaching method that would best meet your objective (EU)”. #sbarbook fourkatie          @jrykse I’d agree with that summary #sbarbook jsb16                  Is #sbarbook happening tonight? jrykse                @fourkatie It was amusing how they tap danced around coming out and just saying “do something besides lecture all the time”. #sbarbook fourkatie          @jrykse I thought they were trying very hard to not offend anyone’s pref method of teaching. Felt wishy-washy. #sbarbook jsb16                  And yet, there are still people who claim that “21stC koolaid” is “rubbishing” lecture, even with all the caveats in #sbarbook… fourkatie          Revisited the cover vs uncover. I definitely want to keep that idea forefront #sbarbook fourkatie          I’ve been guilty of using the textbook as […]

Understanding by Design Chapter 9 – #sbarbook Mon 7/25/11

jsb16                     OK. Who wants to start #sbarbook? What did you think of chapter 9? gwaddellnvhs    Who is here for #sbarbook tonight? @jsb16 and are hosting. jrykse                    present. #sbarbook gwaddellnvhs    #sbarbook Chap 9 was where the rubber really hit the road for me. Very detailed and focused on planning. It is what actually matters. gwaddellnvhs    #sbarbook the “whereto” makes a lot of sense in the planning process. Spend more time planning, and in class the learners do the work. jsb16                     Trying to integrate modeling, #anyqs, #wcydwt, and WHERETO & my brain is overflowing #sbarbook gwaddellnvhs    @jsb16 #sbarbook but really, #anyqs and #wcydwt speak to the “hook” the “where” and the “reflect & revise”. They can be very simpatico! jrykse                    I think the whereto will help clean up lessons. I have some missing pieces. #sbarbook jsb16                     @gwaddellnvhs Didn’t say they wouldn’t work well together. Just different from how I learned #sbarbook gwaddellnvhs    @jsb16 #sbarbook I agree. The way I was taught to […]

jsb16                     NP: #sbarbook Ch7: in which I flounder trying to get a handle on designing assessments to get at student understanding of velocity. jsb16                     NP: #sbarbook Ch7: http://t.co/SWlJUtB in which I try to get a handle on designing assessments to get at student understanding of velocity. druinok                Okay ladies and gents, who all is here for Ch 8 of #sbarbook? gwaddellnvhs    @druinok  #sbarbook Woohoo I am here, and twitter is working again for me suddenly! jsb16                     I’m sort of here #sbarbook. Haven’t finished the chapter, though. fourkatie             Here for #sbarbook, but Twitter says I’m following 0 people so not seeing much! druinok                Okay, so any first thoughts on Ch 8?  Do any of you use rubrics now when grading? #sbarbook gwaddellnvhs    @druinok  #sbarbook I have some bad ones I created that I used. After this chap I know why teachers before me used rubistar. consistency. druinok                I liked the idea that an explicit goal implies the criteria needed for the […]

Understanding by Design Chapter 7 – #sbarbook Mon 7/11/11

Sorry on the delay on this one. I was out of town and it looks like twitter had some troubles.–Lisa druinok Okay ladies and gents, who all is here for #sbarbook? 🙂 Don’t forget you may need to unprotect tweets for recording the convo jsb16 I’m here for #sbarbook. Didn’t finish the chapter, though. jrykse Here #sbarbook druinok overall, this chapter was way easier to read than some of the previous ones – what stood out to you guys? #sbarbook jrykse and were back? #sbarbook fourkatie here for #sbarbook . A little late. trouble with twitter. jsb16 I like the idea of trying to “convict” kids of understanding with a “preponderance of evidence”. #sbarbook fourkatie I didn’t finish the chapter, but seemed easier to grasp. assessment infor reminded me of past #sbarbook druinok Ok #sbarbook, it appears we are back 🙂 This chapter hit me in the gut again. I’ve been guilty of some of the assessment issues 🙁 druinok […]

druinok          So, who all is here for #sbarbook? fourkatie       Here for #sbarbook justbugnu     #sbarbook I’m here for #sbarbook mrhodotnet @druinok It’s beginning to make more sense #sbarbook jrykse             Here #sbarbook lmhenry9      I’ll be here shortly for #sbarbook. Working on getting kids to bed now. druinok          so what did you guys think of this chapter? #sbarbook fourkatie       Well, I was actually able to get through this chapter, so that was a plus #sbarbook druinok          @fourkatie LOL *high five* 🙂  #sbarbook druinok          The one thing I took away was “Students should understand THAT” – definitely helped w/ wording I think #sbarbook fourkatie       I liked the emphasis in parts that you need empathy for the novice, that you need to have a developmental reality check #sbarbook mrhodotnet @druinok I like the quote you tweeted earlier on pg 139 about vocabulary #sbarbook jreulbach       @druinok Yes, that was in @samjshah’s template. #cliffnotes #sbarbook fourkatie       that “what is initially a difficult inference can become, over time, […]

Understanding by Design Chapter 5 – #sbarbook Friday 7/1/2011

lmhenry9              Who’s here for Chapter 5 of #sbarbook tonight/ druinok                 @lmhenry9 I’m here! #sbarbook jrykse                     Present #sbarbook jsb16                      I’m here. #sbarbook lmhenry9              Where do you want to start #sbarbook tonight? I am almost done with Chapter 5. jsb16                      #sbarbook I think I’m not going to really understand ch5 until I’ve written, read, and discussed some actual questions. lmhenry9              Please remember to “go public” if you can with your #sbarbook tweets for this hour or so – it does help me get the transcript. druinok                 I liked the comment on pg 108 that said “best questions are alive – people argue about them outside of school” #sbarbook druinok                 also liked the idea on pg 110 that wording does not tell whether a question is essential – must look at the context #sbarbook jrykse                     I tried to come up with topical, overarching questions for an essential understanding. #sbarbook jrykse                     Then I had to go back and re-read.   Having to approach this book […]

Understanding by Design Chapter 4 – #sbarbook Monday 6/27/2011

lmhenry9               Who’s here for Ch 4 of #sbarbook? fourkatie               Here (although not caught up) for Ch 4 of #sbarbook jsb16                       I’m caught up with #sbarbook. druinok                  @lmhenry9 I’m here!! #sbarbook gwaddellnvhs      @lmhenry9 I am here for #sbarbook druinok                  @fourkatie at least Ch 4 was easier to read than Ch 3 🙂 lmhenry9               Yay! Glad to see we have our crew back for #sbarbook. Anyone have some place they’d like to start? jrykse                      Here #sbarbook druinok                  I had never realized how many ways we use the word “understand” until this chapter #sbarbook Mr_Martenis       @lmhenry9 I’m here #sbarbook jrykse                      Seemed to basically make the case for what is understanding and ways to show it. #sbarbook jsb16                       I should probably blog as I go through #sbarbook. Lots of little insights that I don’t want stuck in a notebook or lost among tweets. druinok                  Y’all have no idea how much I missed you last week!  I was grateful for the transcript after I finished […]

Summer is 24/7 active w my kids. so hard to catch up! #sbarbook Scott_Schaefer    Trying to be here.  Internet is sort of unstable today.  Great chapter! #sbarbook lmhenry9               I think twitter in general at the moment is slow. #sbarbook jryske                      Here #sbarbook Mr_Martenis        Behind on reading #sbarbook, but ready to catch up. lmhenry9               I felt kind of confused by this chapter of #sbarbook at times. Anyone else? jreulbach                @lmhenry9 yes! I’m so glad you said it. I feel like the book is saying the same thing alot. Am I just not getting it? #sbarbook lmhenry9               @jreulbach I did feel in this chapter they were repeating a lot. Still felt confused though in this chapter. #sbarbook jreulbach                @lmhenry9 what confused you the most? #sbarbook fourkatie                I thought it may have been just me.  I’m having a hard time being open […]

Glad you could join us for #sbarbook! lmhenry9                I know @druinok mentioned that the last chapter of #sbarbook hit her hard – this one kicked my rear pretty hard. lmhenry9                @Scott_Schaefer The whole coverage issue. I am so guilty of it and it really kicked my a$$ about it. #sbarbook mathsfeedback    Yes, so much to think about. I feel really challenged. #sbarbook druinok                    @lmhenry9 I’m here!! #sbarbook Scott_Schaefer    @lmhenry9 Why was this chapter hard? #sbarbook lmhenry9                There’s so much stuff we’re supposed to “cover” – especially for Algebra […]
