Teaching StandardsThese run your lessons! • Curriculum Continuum: • K-12, Core Subject Areas • Long process of development by the districts • Still in tact…a LOT of work was put into these • Will be “tweaked” as Core Standards are implemented • www.nfdl.k12.wi.us • www.west-bend.k12.wi.us/ • Do not trust your textbooks to meet the standards.
Core Standards Assignment: • Take the core standards in your subject area. • Put each section on a note cards. Be sure to keep them organized…you may want to number them as you make them. (When you first work with them, it is easy to mix them up…..) • Feel free to cut and paste so your make your note cards on the computer. Note: You do NOT get a better grade for doing it this way. : )
