High School Content Expectations

On November 15, 2005, DRAFT High School Content Expectations developed by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of School Improvement were presented as an information item to the State Board of Education.

Content Expectations Goal

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

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 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 the Michigan Merit Exam.

High School Content Expectations

The Expectations:

  • Build on and extend

    • Michigan K-8 GLCE and the K-8 Educational Experience

    • Michigan Curriculum Framework

    • Career and Employability Skills Content Standards and Benchmarks

  • Are aligned with national standards and recommendations


Rigor, Relevance and Relationships

Expectations are based on the three R’s: rigor, relevance, and relationships.

They support individualized learning, real-world experiences, and higher standards for learning.

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 Standards

These Expectations will:

Challenge students intellectually

Require that students make a substantial investment in their own learning

Foster the development of cognitive abilities

Develop leadership qualities

Rigor, Relevance, and Applied Learning Standards


Critical Analysis







Decision Making

Analytic Reasoning

Personal and Social Responsibility

Rigorous and Relevant Expectations

Require students to be deeply engaged in:

In order to take the content to a higher level of rigor, learning takes place in the context of:

  • Conceptual Understanding

    • Comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations, and relations

  • Procedural Fluency

    • Skill in carrying out procedures flexibly and accurately

  • Strategic Competence

    • Ability to formulate, represent, and solve mathematical problems

  • Adaptive Reasoning

    • Capacity for logical thought, reflection, explanation, and justification

  • Productive Disposition

    • Habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled with a belief in diligence

HS English Language Arts Expectations

In order to take the content to a higher level of rigor, learning takes place in the context of:

  • Dispositions (Habits of Mind) for Generative Rigor

    • Inter-relationships and Self-reliance

      • Families, communities, societies, governments, economies

    • Critical Response/Stance

      • Validity, quality, perspective, empathy, social action, power

    • Transformational Thinking

      • Engagement in learning and the world, open to possible failure, thinking into the future, reflection, search for truth, generative vs. receptive, wisdom

    • Leadership Qualities

      • Integrity, responsibility, plural citizenship, micro-macro fluidity, negotiation, effective writing and speaking abilities, innovation

HS English Language Arts Expectations

Constructing Meaning Example

Strand 2: Reading, Listening, and Viewing

Standard – 2.2: Use a variety of reading, listening, and viewing strategies to construct meaning beyond the literal level (e.g., drawing inferences; confirming and correcting; making comparisons, connections, and generalizations; and drawing conclusions).

Expectation – CE2.2.1Recognize literary and persuasive strategies as ways in which communication can be influenced through imagery, irony, satire, parody, propaganda, overstatement/understatement, omission, and multiple points of view.

Expectation – CE2.2.2Examine the ways in which prior knowledge affects the understanding of written, spoken, or multimedia text.

Expectation – CE2.2.3 Interpret the meaning of written, spoken, and visual texts drawing on different cultural, theoretical, and critical perspectives.
