RE: Understanding By Design + mapping

We are just starting the mapping this school year- diary mapping.
That's where we map what we did, not what we're gonna do. I suspect
curriculum rewrite won't be far behind.


For anyone who has mapped for a few years, how does it help? I guess
you can see holes in the curriculum, but it seems too much angst for
just a little good. Is that it? Do the higher ups use it to evaluate
your job?


 I have ordered Understanding by Design 'cause I like to have this stuff
thought over before the administration comes and tells us that we're
gonna have to do it. Gets my head in a better place.

We are in the same boat. In fact, we will be working on the curriculum
map tomorrow. I would also like to hear from anyone who has perhaps
gone through this and has visual arts applications.

We also are re writing our curriculum...I'll share whatever I find with
the list if anyone's interested.

        Our school is working on curriculum using the Understanding By
Design model. I've been looking online for any visual arts applications
of this method of curriculum design, but have found very little. Does
anyone have any curriculum examples specific to visual art? Or websites
that show what this curriculum would look like in the visual arts
setting? I've found examples of math, science, and ELA, but would like
to find a model that is more specific.

        Thanks for any information you can share,
