    *the Understanding by Design (UbD) framework that was used to create the AISD curriculum documents this year. AISD staff went through professional development in creating curriculum using this framework, and Jay McTighe was consulted to examine the AISD curriculum documents and provide feedback.*Understanding by Design promotes the philosophy of beginning with the end in mind. To ensure success, educators must first clearly define the goals and clearly communicate what students will know and be able to do as a result of instruction. Then the instructional plan can be created with those goals in mind.*AISD teachers and principals need to become familiar with several new curriculum documents. Each of these documents will be described in turn during your time in Session 1.The Understanding By Design Framework recommends a curriculum built around Units of Study wherein the teacher uses the Big Ideas and Enduring Understandings from the standards (TEKS) as a guide for instruction, rather than letting instructional materials guide lesson plans.
