During the Standards-Based Learning workshop, participants will explore and analyze a variety of resources from which curriculum and assessments are developed, including, but not limited to Common Core, ACT and ACT Aspire, NGSS, MAP Assessments, and Lucy Calkins and Jim Burke units of study for literacy. Through this analysis, participants will engage in dialogue around the importance of developing standards of focus and understanding how those standards develop across the learning continuum.


Standards-based learning is essential to the development and implementation of proficiency based progress instructional practices. As such, participants will discuss the value and importance of standards driven rubrics and/or learning continuums to guide instructional moves and learner pathways.


Finally, participants will engage in dialogue around the importance of utilizing the PLC structure to define and calibrate around proficiency on performance assessments. Standards-based learning practices are only effective when standards are assessed with the same level of rigor, no matter the learning pathway taken to demonstrate competency.
