This book really will only appeal to those who have read one or more of the UbD theory books. If you haven't, go back and read the main book, Understanding by Design, and get the authors' gists. If you have read the background stuff, and are interested in using it, this is an INVALUABLE resource. It gives step-by-step actions to create a deep system of goals and objectives, followed up by great considerations for assessment rationale and also some guidance for how to structure motivation behind [...]

It will be a useful guide but I am thinking I will need to read it about 10 more times before it sinks in. Mainly it feels like a lot of the sections and subsections are either redundant or so similar that it's extremely difficult to tease out the differences among them, when you use what, if there's a time you can omit a section, etc. It could definitely use more examples (in the book itself; I don't want to have to go online to get the additional material, if I wanted to do that I'd purchase t [...]

If you have a strong understanding of UBD, this is an outstanding guide for those working in curriculum design. For the average teacher, it might be a bit overwhelming. I particularly enjoyed having the access to digital downloads from the guide where I could take notes and apply the process to my own work.

I am so excited to be using this book to guide our TEAM lesson plan template. This has some excellent instructional modules on basic elements and concepts that are sequenced for constructivist teaching practices. I am so impressed with how easy this text is for usage with undergrads, graduate students and teaching practitioners. Highly recommended!

Great workbook for guiding implementation of UBD. Not entry-point, however.

This seems to be an amazing way to plan meaningful learning experiences for students. It begins witha question and then starts at the end and works backwards. It actually makes lesson planning a piece of cake (if you can believe that) as your goals are already set out for a 3 week time frame, as well as what assessments you plan to use. It takes some getting used to but it is worth the time to try it out.

This book contained well explained processes to understanding the different aspects of UBD. I found the new version of the template more user friendly and the worksheet online and in the book helped with my planning and clarifying key ideas. A useful companion to the Backwards by Design book with little unnecessary repetition of ideas/content.

I've read about UbD before--what educator hasn't? What this book does well is help people to write the lesson plans. It is broken up into modules, and each says something like, "If you're struggling with 'x', than read this module. If not, skip it". I appreciated that.

The third book I've read on UbD. This is the Cliff Notes version, and probably a better starting place than the first two books I've read. Solid principles of instruction.

Very informative companion to the expanded UbD edition. I am looking forward to partnering this design with the information literacy threshold concepts. Wish me luck!

A fantastic guide to planning inquiry based units of study. I have been inspired to create a visual representation of the major steps in planning high quality units.

A practical guide for those who have a strong understanding of UBD. The digital downloads from the guide are helpful templates for applying UBD.

This book was a little droll for me. It went on and on about designing lesson plans.
