Virtual Curriculum Design with Jay McTighe: Timely Units for COVID-19

Apr 23, 2020

Curriculum can be a living and breathing opportunity for taking advantage of teachable moments on very relevant topics.  And, surely, COVID19 is such a moment. Join Jay McTighe, co-author of Understanding by Design (UbD) ® as he walks through the rich curriculum units, one in science and one in social studies, that he and his colleagues designed using Eduplanet21’s Unit Planner. The units feature timely resources not available in textbooks. These units show the power of collaborative planning which is so easily facilitated virtually in Unit Planner. The units referenced in this presentation are available below.

This webinar, held on April 23, 2020, is the first in a series focused on effective curriculum design during the time of COVID-19. Eduplanet21 and NYSCATE have partnered with experts in the field to offer tools and strategies to accomplish curriculum transformation efforts during this uncharted time, and opportunities to share and learn from each other.
