Backward Design Begin with the end in mind and map out the steps to get you there: Identify Learning Goals: What do you want students to know? What do you want students to be able to do? Why is this difficult for them to know\ do on their own? Determine acceptable evidence: How will you know that they got there? How will you assess that they got there? How can we help students learn what is needed to be successful?
