Donna Clementi, Lawrence University, Appleton, WI
Presentation Date: 
November 29, 2012

Backward Design principles require that teachers begin unit planning by describing what they want students to know and be able to do by the end of the instructional unit. Teachers must describe how students will demonstrate that they can apply the grammar and vocabulary and cultural knowledge presented in the unit to real life situations. This webinar will outline a step-by-step process to create a standards-based performance assessment unit.
