Definition of standards based classroom l.jpg

Definition of Standards-Based Classroom

A classroom where teachers and students have a clear understanding of the expectations (standards). They know what they are teaching/learning each day (standards), why the learning is important (relevance),

and how to do it (process).

SBL is a process…not an event.

(Nor is it a canned-program)

-Douglas Reeves


Goal of standards based instruction l.jpg

Goal of Standards-Based Instruction

  • All students to gain a deeper understanding of standards through RIGOROUS and RELEVANT instruction.


Yardsticks for a differentiated curriculum carol tomlinson l.jpg

Yardsticks for a Differentiated Curriculum(Carol Tomlinson)

Rich- coherent, relevant, powerful, transferable, authentic, meaningful

This is true for all learners!!!!

Rigorous- stretches gifted learners beyond their comfort zone in: insight, knowledge, thought, production, presentation, skills and affective awareness.

Remember: There must be a balance between rigor and joy!


Fast facts for teachers on standards based classrooms l.jpg

Fast Facts for Teacherson Standards-Based Classrooms

  • Includes the language of the standard (learning goal for students)

  • EQ- Essential Question provides relevance

  • Supports a risk-free environment

  • Activates prior knowledge

  • Contains formative and summative assessments

  • Engages all through differentiation

  • Provides enrichment

  • Allows the opportunity to demonstrate acquired knowledge through performance-based tasks

  • Gifted teachers can be used as a resource to help with differentiation in the regular classroom


4 components of standards based learning l.jpg

4 Components of Standards-Based Learning

  • Standard/Elements

  • Authentic, Meaningful Tasks-Aligned to the Standard(s)

  • Student Work

  • Commentary and Feedback


1 standards elements l.jpg

1. Standards/Elements

  • Explains what the student should know, understand and be able to do

  • Should be visible to all students.

  • Should be posted and tracked-students can identify which standard is the current focus….not just decoration or wall paper.

  • Should be the center of the EQ.

  • Teachers and students should be able to verbalize (kid speak).

  • Word Wall should support the standards.

  • This should always be updated, and relevant to what is being taught.


2 authentic meaningful tasks l.jpg

2. Authentic, Meaningful Tasks

  • MUST be directly aligned to the standard. (Relevance)

  • Must be challenging (rigor)

  • Real World connections

  • Student can explain what they are learning and why

  • Students are actively engaged

  • Should be differentiated

  • Mastery should be recorded


Could should would test harry passow l.jpg

Could-Should-Would TestHarry Passow

  • Ask: Does this task/activity for gifted learners pass the Could-Should-Would Test?”

  • Could most other students of this age do it?

  • Should most other students of this age do it?

  • Would most other students of this age, if they knew the expectations, even want to do it?

    *If the task/activity does not pass the test, it is not defensible gifted education!


3 student work l.jpg

3. Student Work

  • Student Work is posted

  • Rubric/Evaluation Criteria is posted

  • Standard is posted

  • Variety of responses are posted

  • Exemplars of different levels of achievement are posted.

  • Students know where they stand in relation to performance.

  • Students should know where they need to move to get to the next level in their work.


4 commentary feedback l.jpg

4. Commentary & Feedback

  • Tells the student how to improve- use the language of the standard

  • Commentary is aligned to the standard

  • Self Assessment is taught and expected

  • Feedback is descriptive and timely

  • Teacher encourages active learning

  • Commentary may be teacher, peer or self

    Use the standard terminology in the commentary and feedback.


Teacher commentary l.jpg

Teacher Commentary

  • Opens communication between teacher and student

  • Provides opportunities for the teacher to:

    • Correct Knowledge gaps or skills deficits

    • Provide specific and helpful info for improvement

    • Encourage the student to keep trying, motivating


More teacher commentary l.jpg

More Teacher Commentary

  • Usually includes:

    • A positive statement about the student work and the student’s progress toward meeting the standard(s)

    • An identified area for improvement

    • Specific information on how to “grow” toward meeting the standard

    • Opportunities for the student to revise the work


Student commentary l.jpg

Student Commentary

  • Students utilize a common procedure, understood process, or rubric to review a self or peer’s work and provide feedback for improvement.

  • Very effective if used to support the writing process.

  • Should be focused and helpful for improvement based on the standard.


Other important tidbits l.jpg

Other important tidbits…

  • Teachers can no longer just teach content and test recall facts….student must be able to use their knowledge to apply, analyze, synthesize, create and evaluate.

  • Therefore Gifted Education must be apart of the team to increase rigor, richness, and relevance!

    Best friends with SBL and Differentiation:

    Depth of Knowledge!!!

    Higher Levels of Blooms!!!!


What can i do to get ready for standards based instruction l.jpg

What can I do to get ready for standards-based instruction?

  • Attend meetings, study groups (organize a book study!), read, and professional learning opportunities.

  • Collaboration with other teachers is key!

  • Make sure that the focus is on student learning and what is in the best interest for the child.

  • Visit other teachers and/or schools to see this in action!


How do i begin to move to a standards based gifted class l.jpg

How Do I Begin to Move to a Standards-Based Gifted Class?

  • Begin by learning your standards- gifted standards and/or GPS

  • Begin with the end in mind- what do you want your gifted students to accomplish when they leave your classroom? How will you assess these outcomes?

  • Design task/activities for gifted students to accomplish these end results

  • Decide on your theme/topic to tie it all together

Odyssey of the mind l.jpg

Odyssey of the Mind

is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college.


Slide41 l.jpg

  • Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.


What is divergent thinking l.jpg

What is Divergent Thinking?

What is divergent-thinking?

Convergent Problem Solving - for every problem, there is just one correct answer

Divergent Problem Solving - for lots of problems, there may be many correct answers

Odyssey of the Mind encourages young people to explore many possible answers and to be creative in finding a solution

Because there are no wrong solutions, teams are free to take calculated risks in attempting to solving the problem

Odyssey of the Mind allows kids to use their imaginations to interpret and solve complex problems in a FUN way!


In odyssey of the mind l.jpg

In Odyssey of the Mind…

  • Students learn to work together and develop team-building skills.

  • Students learn to examine problems and to identify the real challenge without limiting the possible solutions and their potential success.

  • The creative-thinking process is nurtured and developed as a problem-solving tool.

  • Students of all types will find something that will appeal to them.

Responding to gifted student needs using the collaborative service model l.jpg

Responding to Gifted Student Needs Using the Collaborative Service Model

What is the collaborative service model?

Why use the collaborative service model?

First steps to using the collaborative model.

Monitoring the fidelity of implementation.


What is the collaborative service model doe resource manual for gifted services l.jpg

What is the Collaborative Service Model?DOE Resource Manual for Gifted Services

7.1.4.b Indirect Services

• Collaborative Teaching (K-12) -- Direct instruction may be provided by a regular classroom teacher, but there must be substantial, regularly scheduled collaborative planning between the content area teacher and the gifted specialist (the teacher with the gifted endorsement who is serving as the instructional facilitator). The gifted specialist, the regular classroom teacher, and the gifted student (when appropriate) collaborate in the development of challenging assignments that substitute for or extend the core curriculum objectives which the identified gifted student has already mastered.


What is the collaborative service model doe resource manual for gifted services51 l.jpg

What is the Collaborative Service Model?DOE Resource Manual for Gifted Services

To ensure adequate time for the gifted specialist to meet with teaching partners and gifted students, develop or secure advanced materials and other resources, develop individual student contracts, and provide small group or individual instruction …

  • He/she must be given one full period each day or its weekly equivalent during which he/she has only gifted education programming responsibilities (as determined by the local system) for every three classes in which he/she has collaborative teaching responsibilities.

  • The total number of gifted students whose instruction may be modified through this collaborative approach may not exceed an average of eight per class. For example, if the gifted program specialist is working with three classroom teachers during the first period of the school day, there may be no more than 24 gifted students (for whom curriculum is being modified) divided among the three classes, and the gifted specialist must be given one full class period at some point during the week to plan appropriately challenging instruction, gather advanced materials, meet with teacher partners and students, and/or provide small group or individual instruction for gifted students.

Closing thoughts l.jpg

Closing Thoughts . . .

  • Implementing multiple service models is complex and requires ongoing professional learning.

  • Bi-annual meetings with principals are important for scheduling and understanding expectations for the collaboration model.

  • Planning is not enough for effective use of the collaboration model, gifted specialist need to work with the classroom teacher.
