Quality Planning

The Logic of Backwards Design

In order to better ensure that quality instruction is taking place consistently across the county, our district is currently renewing its new focus on instructional planning.  The emphasis of quality planning will be on “backward design.”  This process requires teachers to think about what the outcome of the lesson or unit will be and determine how the student will demonstrate mastery of the learning.  These outcomes will guide the design of the lesson activities.
