  5. 5
    Let’s fix that…
    Which skill should folks
    master?
    Develop learning
    objectives
    Choose a project (a
    “performance of
    understanding”) that
    shows they’ve mastered
    that objective.
    Design an
    assessment
    Content, exercises,
    support that will help
    them reach the
    assessment.
    Select relevant
    activities

    Design for Understanding:
    a framework for teaching
    things to humans
    Which skill should folks
    master?
    Develop learning
    objectives
    Choose a project that
    shows they’ve mastered
    that objective, set criteria
    for success.
    Design an
    assessment
    Content, exercises,
    support that will help
    them reach the

    Why?
    Vanessa, that
    seems like a lot
    of work.
    Here’s what saves you
    time and effort:
    Starting with the performance
    of understanding builds a
    project-based experience.
    APPLICATION, NOT RECALL
    START WITH LEARNER NEEDS
    FOCUS YOUR ACTIVITIES
    Students want to learn a
    discrete thing. Value to learner
    in this framework is clear.
    Easily determine which new
    content and exercises are in
    bounds and out..

    Students will understand that..." and list
    essential questions that will guide the learner
    to understanding.

    Spectrogram
    1. Ask a controversial question related to your
    learning goal.
    2. Humans move along the continuum to
    signal their point of view.
    3. Share out to hear different options on the
    matter.

    Speedgeeking
    1. Speedgeeking is a way to collaboratively set
    a vision for the workshop day.
    2. Line participants up in two lines, have them
    face each other.
    3. Introduce yourself to the person in front of
    you, share what you want to get out of the
    day.
    4. The line on the right advances one person
    forward every 30 seconds.

    Think, pair,
    share
    1. People are shy. Break the ice by asking your
    workshop questions for people to think
    about privately first.
    2. Then, they turn to their neighbor to discuss.
    3. Then they can optionally share out with the
    larger group.

    Make the
    quilt
    This is a great way to get everyone to build
    criteria for what makes a successful project.
    1. Ask people to find an excellent example of a
    successful project.
    2. Ask them to document what makes it good.
    3. Build a collaborative rubric together to
    assess future projects.

    Build as you
    go
    “Build as you go” is a great technique for
    iterating on a project over the course of the
    workshop.
    1. Ask learners about a project idea they want
    to work on.
    2. Introduce new perspectives, or increased
    complexity over each phase.
    3. Ask learners to revisit or revise their idea in
    light of the new concept.
    4. FYI the worksheet for this workshop is “Build
    as you go.”

    Use the appropriate vocabulary to
    describe the origami sculpture.
    Solve related math problems.

    Students explain the sequence of
    folding the sculpture.
    Correct solution(s) of the follow-
    up math questions.
    Example: Criteria for
    successful sculpture
    Your activity
    Have students describe the
    folding process using geometric
    terms, e.g., faces, symmetry,
    edges, rectangle, triangle, etc.
    as they apply to your chosen
    Origami.
    Example: Think, pair
    share for the
    creation process.

  25. Tips,
    tricks
    and
    hacks.
    MAKE A
    WORKSHEET
    PERSONAL
    SEATING CHART
    1. When people go around and
    introduce themselves, draw a
    sketch of the table and write
    their names around it.
    2. That way you’ll have a cheat
    sheet of their names, and they
    will feel included.
    1. Print the darn thing out and bring
    copies with you.
    2. Include your name and contact info
    on the sheet.
    3. Working on pen and paper keeps
    people focused, and they have a
    concrete takeaway to reference later.
    BE THE WELCOME
    WAGON
    1. Stand by the door and say hi to
    people as they come in. Ask why
    they came.
    2. Reference those particular pain
    points or examples in your
    workshop.
