Understanding By Design

Using Wiggins & McTighe’s (2005) Understanding By Design Model, I have designed the following professional learning for the implementation of blended learning into the curriculum of Kuleana Education. The lesson will be a day long professional development at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year. The learners/ participants will be teachers who are being asked to use a blended learning station rotation model in their K-8 curriculum.
