Understanding by Design

At WestCAST this past week, I attending two sessions where I was introduced to the idea of backward design.  I had never heard of this method for planning lessons so I headed to the used book store in Mac Hall and found the book Understanding by Design by Grant Wiggins and  Jay McTighe.  After reading the first two chapters I thought I would try making a wordle to capture some of the big ideas I have been reading about so far.
