Jay and I are beginning the challenge of developing the 3rd edition of Understanding by Design and we would love your input.

We know some things we want to accomplish:

  1. Reflect the national standards
  2. Offer more practical advice about good design, editing, and improving designs
  3. Shorten the book
  4. Offer template options based on sound principles so people don’t fixate on ‘the’ template or get overwhelmed by it
  5. Update the references


So, what is your wish list – as a professor, teacher, professional development provider, assistant superintendent, principal, Dept. Head, Coach?

What’s your feedback about what works and what doesn’t work in the 2nd edition of UbD?

We ESPECIALLY want to highlight in sidebars specific educator experiences with UbD that offer practical advice and commentary based on your use of UbD. Tell us your stories!!


Spread the word, please! We’re hoping to finish the revision by January.
