  1. Using Understanding by Design in the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classroom

    How can today’s teachers, whose classrooms are more culturally and linguistically diverse than ever before, ensure that their students achieve at high levels? How can they design units and lessons that support English language learners in language development and content learning - simultaneously? Authors Amy Heineke and Jay McTighe provide the answers by adding a lens on language to the widely used Understanding by Design® framework (UbD® framework) for curriculum design, which emphasises teaching for understanding, not rote memorisation. Student profiles, real-life classroom scenarios, and sample units and lessons combined with findings from an extensive research base provide compelling examples of how teachers across contexts use the UbD framework in their diverse classrooms.

Many of these small changes involve enrichments to existing vocabulary practices, such as word walls and conversations with students.
