Module I: Setting the Context for Standards-based Instruction

Module Outcome

Participants will develop an understanding of the critical components and capacities of a standards-based accountability system focused on assuring the achievement of high standards for all students.

This module contains a variety of tools and processes presented in a sequence to teach the critical components and capacities of a standards-based system.

In this module, each tool is presented and discussed briefly. A much fuller and deeper discussion could certainly have value in another setting and may meet the needs of your audience and support your workshop outcomes.

On the other hand, if time does not permit using the tools and processes as presented here, select and use those that most support your audience and outcomes.
