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.
My name is Barb English and I am a second year teacher with the Calgary Board of Education. I have embarked on a journey of self-discovery and am excited about sharing my learning with people I meet along the way.
