CSU California Academic Partnership Program

Facilitator's Guide

The Facilitator's Guide includes six modules that focus on the following:

  • Module I: Setting the Context for Standards-based Instruction
  • Module II: The Standards-based Instructional Planning Process-Backward Mapping From Standards to Instruction
  • Module III: Building Capacity for Standards-based Instruction
  • Module IV: Using Student Work to Set Performance Standards and Develop Scoring Guides
  • Module V: Selecting Exemplars and Writing Commentary on Student Work
  • Module VI: The Instructional Unit

It is our intention that teachers use the sections of the Facilitator's Guide that match your particular outcomes or goals and that teachers also review, revise as necessary, and use the standards-based instructional units that meet your needs.

If you have further questions regarding the use of these units or materials, please contact: Julie Torres at WestEd at 415-615-3111 or Jtorres@wested.org.
