"Established Standards provide a clear set of worthy educational outcomes. However, the Standards are not curriculum. Educators must use the standards as a basis for designing high-quality curricula and assessments to support impactful teaching for effective learning."

Jay McTighe is a veteran educator, having served as a teacher, resource specialist, program coordinator, director of a state program for gifted students, and administrator for innovative programs at the Maryland Department of Education.

He is an accomplished author, having co-authored 18 books, including the award-winning and best-selling Understanding by Design series with Grant Wiggins. His books have been translated into fourteen languages.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is designed for curriculum and assessment staff, school-based administrators, teacher leaders, and instructional coaches.


Workshop Overview

In this workshop, we will apply the principles and practices of Understanding by Design and Leading Modern Learning for transforming the Standards and 21st-century skills into a coherent curriculum that emphasizes understanding and long-term transfer.


Participants will learn proven approaches for:

  • Creating a curriculum “blueprint” to guide the design of a coherent and vertically aligned curriculum 

  • “Unpacking” standards to identify conceptually big ideas and transfer goals

  • Generating essential questions that spiral across the grades

  • Creating recurring cornerstone assessment tasks and companion rubrics that integrate 21st Century Skills with academic content

  • Curriculum Mapping 3.0 – Mapping the curriculum around desired performances rather than simply a scope and sequence of content “coverage” 

  • Utilizing web-based resources for “working smarter”
