Students will understand that… • Does it specify something to be understood (not known)? • ·Does it focus on big ideas; it is abstract and transferable? • Is inquiry is required for understanding the claim (enduring understanding)? • Does it involve abstract, counterintuitive, and easily misunderstood ideas? • Is the understanding best acquired by “uncovering”(i.e. it must be developed inductively, co-constructed by learners) and “doing” (i.e. using the ideas in realistic settings and with real-world problems)? • Does it summarize important strategic principles in skill areas?

Important to Know and Do • Important knowledge: Facts, concepts, principles • Important skills: processes, strategies, methods Important to know and do
Enduring Understandings: Overarching • Lasting value beyond the classroom • Core processes at the heart of the discipline • Abstract, counterintuitive and often misunderstood ideas Enduring understanding
Coverage vs. Uncoverage • Why would we cover anything? • Instead consider knowledge and skill as the means of addressing questions central to understanding key issues
Uncoverage • The need to understand is heightened when an idea, fact, argument, or experience goes against our expectations or is counterintuitive. • A curriculum designed to develop understanding uncovers complex, abstract, and counterintuitive ideas by involving student in active questioning, practice trying out ideas. • “Uncoverage” describes the design philosophy of guided inquiry into abstract ideas.
