Join educational leaders and best-selling authors Jay McTighe and Harvey Silver as they connect the renowned Understanding by Design framework with the practical instructional tools of the Thoughtful Classroom.

No set of skills matters more in the classroom than the skills of designing curriculum and delivering instruction. This two-day academy brings together the top experts in curriculum design and instructional delivery for an intensive learning and working session.
Designed for beginning to experienced teachers, instructional coaches, teacher-leaders, and administrators, this academy will help you raise student achievement in your classroom or school by focusing on what matters most: crafting dynamic units and bringing them to life in the classroom.


Over the course of this two-day academy, participants will learn…

  • How to plan curriculum so that it develops understanding and the ability to transfer learning.
  • How to design instruction and assessment around authentic tasks that promote meaningful learning.
  • How to actively involve students in the assessment process from beginning to end.
  • A set of classroom-ready instructional tools that build students’ thinking and literacy skills—and that integrate seamlessly into teachers’ curriculum designs.
  • How to use a collection of powerful web-based resources.

Participants will also…

  • Work with fellow educators to plan lessons and units for current and upcoming learning sequences.
  • Receive feedback and coaching from Jay and Harvey on instructional designs.

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