EDG2311 Backward Design-Activity #1

The Backward Design Process
is vital as it gives you an opportunity to view an existing lesson
being implemented by a Master Teacher in alignment with your lesson plan
topic, the opportunity to then deconstruct that lesson from whole to
part by documenting “observed” behaviors of both teacher and students,
to also document observed interventions and strategies and finally to
suggest at least one additional instructional event (activity) to move
the lesson’s quality from “good to great”. Very important frontloading
activity, particularly for those that are beginners in the Lesson
Development, Design and Implementation Processes.
