If you are a fan or a student of “Understanding by Design” by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, you’ll be familiar with the UBD tree for instructional design. I partially developed one for a possible science lab design course for the online classroom. The UBD tree is complete from big idea, through two essential questions down to classroom activities.

There’s also a bonus ten-slide presentation illustrating the design process.
