The Big Ideas of Understanding by Design

1)   UbD is a way of thinking purposefully about curriculum planning and school reform, a set of helpful design tools, and design standards - - not a program or recipe

2)   The end goal of UbD is understanding and the ability to transfer learning – to appropriately connect, make sense of, and use discrete knowledge and skills in context.

3)   Evidence of understanding is revealed through performance when learners transfer knowledge and skills effectively, using one or more “facets” (explain, apply, perspective, empathize and self-assess)



Learning doesn’t stop in the four corners of the classroom. It always been a challenge to educators and instructional developers to cater the needs of the pupils. Innovations and techniques in teaching is rampant. Everything focused on the welfare of the learners. But how can we contribute to all of these changes and start the light in our own community?

Some Good Things about the Competency Based Education

There was a study that there were no two persons that perfectly the same in this world, it can be because of differences in capabilities, talent, knowledge, and skills that we acquired. Those knowledge, talent, skills etc. may be developed all throughout the experience of a person and also to school.

School is actually the second home of a typical student. Almost all of students’ time was allotted to school, from kinder up to college. It is actually a place where many knowledge or wisdom may acquire but the question are, “How can we apply that knowledge?”, “How can you become competitive after the schooling?”, and ”How  about if a student is not really good in Math, science and other subjects and his only good in his or her skills?.

The Best Teaching Methods in the Elementary

The Best Teaching Methods in the Elementary Teaching is is commonly defined in many ways. Among the neophytes, it is mission. Experienced educators define it as a vocation. A tenured teacher like me simply summarizes it as the "3Cs". Common Sense is a basic instinct. Relevant judgement in every situation guides us to do the right action. What will you do with an unruly class with reading problems?

Don't be idealistic with your teaching methods but rather evaluate your approach. Elementary graders are attention seekers by nature. Let them realize they are important in the class through reverse psychology. Give a chance to the very unruly pupil to share his list of positive and negative deeds in day.

Allow the class to open up as to who were helped by his good deeds and were hurt with his mistakes. Make quick count of those who like and dislike him to him realize his standing in the class. This technique requires patience and encouragement. Breaking the barriers of unruliness opens the door for smooth learning in the class.
