with Backward Design. We use Backward Design daily. If you cook, you decide what you will cook, what ingredients you will need, in which pot to cook it, for how long and so on. If you are a musician, before you set you decide which songs to play, in what order, when you will take a break, even what the lighting will look like. All of the tasks we do require us to think ahead and plan. Why? So we get what we want. Teaching and learning is no different.
