Content expectations goal

Content Expectations Goal

These expectations were developed to provide a description of what students should know and be able to do in Scienceby the end of high school for postsecondary success – college, careers and community.


Content expectations goal1

Content Expectations Goal

The Expectations provide a foundation for

curriculum and assessment development

that represents rigorous and relevant

learning for ALL high school students.


Content expectations goal2

Content Expectations Goal

The Expectations:

  • Revise and extend the current Michigan Curriculum Framework High School Standards and Benchmarks.

  • They will also becomethe basis forthe non-ACT elements within theMichigan Merit Exam.


Rigor relevance and applied learning standards

Rigor, Relevance, and Applied Learning Standards

These Expectationswill engage students to…

  • Master content knowledge

  • Have the ability to apply that knowledge to analyze and propose solutions to real-world problems

  • Make connections between what they read, hear, and learn in class and the world around them


Rigor relevance and applied learning standards1

Rigor, Relevance, and Applied Learning Standards

These Expectations will:

  • Challenge students intellectually

  • Require that students make a substantial investment in their own learning

  • Foster the development of cognitive abilities

  • Promote inquiry
