 Designing and Delivering Instruction for

Deeper Learning

with Jay McTighe and Harvey Silver

Educational leaders and best-selling authors Jay McTighe and Harvey Silver are back with an all-new interactive academy based on their recent collaboration and forthcoming ASCD book!

Designed for all levels of educators and instructional leaders, this three-day academy brings together the top experts in instructional design and delivery for an interactive learning and working session.

In connecting the renowned Understanding by Design framework for curriculum and assessment design with the practical tools and strategies of The Thoughtful Classroom, this academy will help you raise student achievement by focusing on what matters most: crafting dynamic units that promote active learning, deep understanding, and long-term transfer.

In this academy, participants will learn…

  • The foundations of Understanding by Design and a simple but powerful design framework that ensures high-quality teaching and learning.
  • How to design instruction and assessment around authentic tasks that promote active learning and deep understanding.
  • A set of practical instructional tools and strategies that promote meaning making and long-term transfer.
  • How to use a collection of powerful web-based resources.

 Participants will also…

  • Work with fellow educators to plan model units and lessons.
  • Receive personal feedback and coaching from Jay and Harvey on their curriculum and instructional designs.
  • Leave with refined lessons and units optimized for active learning, deep understanding, and long-term transfer.

Bring lesson- and unit-planning resources to this session and leave with powerful instructional designs that you can implement immediately!

This all-new academy will feature content from Harvey and Jay’s upcoming ASCD book!
