“The standards will help us focus our instruction.”

I’m excited about having some uniformity in the classrooms and think it will be easier to share instructional ideas with coworkers.”

slide12

“Too often, instructors are simply handed a set of standards and confined to their classrooms without opportunities for inquiry, reflection, and collaboration with their colleagues about how to use the standards and what the outcomes should be.” SIA Unit 1 – p.3

  • Build sample activities
  • Align commonly used resources
  • Create materials
unpacking the components of standards

sample activities
Sample Activities
  • How would students use this standard in their lives?
  • What might students do to exhibit mastery of the standard?
  • Will this activity attract and hold students’ interest?
  • How can this activity be described in just a few sentences?

“Instructors and programs need to know where the gaps are in their current materials so they can fill them appropriately with other resources.”SIA Unit 1 – p.4

“I've never had the opportunity to pick apart the standards I teach and the curriculum I use. Being involved with this project allows all of us to do just that. It will benefit our students, of course, but will also enable us to be better teachers.”

“Underlying the lead-standards approach is a belief that, while all standards are crucial learning outcomes, not all standards are created equal. Some-the lead standards-are useful guideposts for organizing instruction.”

SIA Unit 2 – p.4

year two 2012 2013
Year Two 2012 - 2013

Translating Standards into Curriculum

  • Identify the lead standards
  • Design coherent units of instruction
  • Conduct lesson studies
slide25

“By working as a team, putting the lesson plan together went smoothly. We had good conversation, ideas, suggestions and feedback. Each team member played an important role. Leaders emerged and instructors helped and supported each other. It was a learning experience for all of us.”

“Students can do no better-or learn no more-than the assignments they are given. That is why it is important to be able to tell from the assignment itself (and the resulting student work) what topics are under study and which standards are being taught and learned.”

SIA Unit 3 – p.12

  • Compare to standards of best fit
  • Diagnose student work
  • Redesign assignment

  • Introduce and determine the purpose of the assignment.
  • “Unpack” the assignment to analyze its demands
  • Compare unpacked standards and unpacked assignment to determine alignment
  • Diagnose student work
  • Redesign the assignment as needed
slide30

“Participating in Focus on Assignments has changed the way I look at lessons. I now take a more focused approach with how the lesson relates to the standards.”

“It challenges me to create better, more effective lessons, and it gives me a process to do it.”

  • Formative assessment during the lesson and adjusted instruction
slide35

“Being observed helped keep me more aware of watching students’ verbal and nonverbal responses to questions and problems. I felt more ‘tuned in’ with the students, and the students seemed to recognize that, as their participation was better than I anticipated.”
