Upgrade Your Teaching Understanding By Design Meets Neuroscience
Jay McTighe, Judy Willis
The Brain and Learning
How can educators leverage neuroscience research about how the human brain learns? How can we use this information to improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment so our students achieve deep learning and understanding in all subject areas? Upgrade Your Teaching: Understanding by Design Meets Neuroscience answers these questions by merging insights from neuroscience with Understanding by Design® (UbD®), the framework used by thousands of educators to craft units of instruction and authentic assessments that emphasize understanding rather than recall.
