7 Committee Member Evaluation (Committee Member Use Only) OVERALL INSTRUCTIONAL QUALITY IDENTIFY AN EXAMPLE (WITH PAGE NUMBERS OR LOCATION) DEEMED TYPICAL OF THE APPROACH TAKEN IN THE MAJOR TOOL. The Examples can be from Student or Teacher Instructional Material. Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree The major tool introduces and builds social studies concepts as a coherent whole. It provides opportunities to students to explore why an idea is important and in which contexts that idea can be useful. In other words, the major tool helps students learn the social studies concepts in depth. Additionally, students are given opportunities to connect conceptual knowledge with procedural knowledge and factual knowledge. Overall, there is an appropriate balance of skill development and conceptual understanding. Magruder's American Government incorporates Understanding by Design model, co-created by program author Grant Wiggins. This instruction encourages students to connect to the content and build knowledge and skills through experiences, which lead to understanding. Essential Questions for each Unit, Chapter, and Section provide a larger framework to guide students and help them see the big ideas. Through American Government, students will be able to explore concepts, build knowledge, and transfer what they ve learned beyond the classroom. Understanding by Design is registered as a trademark with the Patent and Trademark Office by the Association for Supervision of Curriculum Development (ASCD).
