UbD Educators Wiki

Some months down the road after its creation, the UbD Educators wiki has fallen silent. I logged in today to find that neither changes nor discussions had taken place in the last 30 days. Yikes!

I take part of the blame upon myself. Having five preps leaves me, ironically, with not much time to plan, particularly now as National Honor Society business has take up much of my time.

Update, 4:45: I have a draft of the lesson for my Canterbury Tales unit up now.

Well, at any rate, I invite new folks to join in, quiet members to speak up, and previously active members (such as myself) to become active again. I think this kind of professional development, sadly, is much more valuable and important than much of what teachers normally get. I’m only sad I can’t get you PLU credits for it.

I’m going to start with a unit on The Canterbury Tales. Wish me luck, but give me time to finish it before you comment.

See you over there.

  1. I hadn't realized how long it had been since I was over there! I've also struggled with planning since the school year began.

  2. Dana,

    I think we are all so busy! But I bought Tighe's book and try to read a chapter every week so that I can plan my lessons better. Looking at the lesson plans really makes me think about how I should assess, and what are the actual goals and outcomes I want in my students. You have inspired some of us–we are just busy trying to incorporate it all!

  3. I always have it lurking in the back of my mind and I always feel a little guilty! The truth is, I haven't had time to write any UbD lesson plans since school started, so I have nothing to contribute… it doesn't help that my school is not on the UbD bandwagon, either!
