    Does anyone have any information about "Big Ideas" and how to develop lesson plans around them?

    An online search came up with a link to Standards Aligned Systems at PA PDE, but I couldn't really get a good idea of exactly what it was or how it would be used.

    Who are the big UBD people.....Tomlinson? McTighe? Search those names. I have a book somewhere that talks about big ideas and essential questions. It's a great practice, although somewhat unrealistic.

    Good luck! It takes some work in the beginning (well a lot of work) but then it's much easier after the first few because you get much more proficient at the process.
