Broad Brush Unit Planning (BBUP) –

Designing Challenging Units of Work



Broad Brush Unit Planning (BBUP) is a Backward Mapping model for planning units of work, which begins with the summative and formative assessment tasks and works backwards to plan learning experiences for students to undertake that task.

This highly practical and hands-on workshop follows-on from the ITC Explicit Teaching – 4-Steps workshop, as it emphasises the incorporation of the ITC Thinking Skills Framework and the thinking tools into the unit plans. BBUP has a 7 step process:

1. Formulating a challenging title by employing a HOOK

2. Fixing the length of the unit (weeks or lessons)

3. Determining assessment items (Product)

4. Listing all Skills and Learning Indicators desired for that unit

5. Linking the Skills and Indicators to each of the products

6. Deciding on the broad content Focus for each week and linking cognitive and cooperative thinking skills to these content areas

7. Linking the Skills and Indicators to the major Content focus of each week.


COURSE 2: 1.5 hour registered course:

Separate course for either Infants/Primary (speaker Dr. Anne Bellert from Southern Cross University) and Secondary (Rob Donnelly).

A grand total of 6.5 registered hours available for the day (will require follow-up).

Please let Garry know asap if you are planning to attend.
