Learning Targets

1. I can understand the 'big picture' and goal of I-SS for MS and HS Science.
2. I can determine the non-negotiable skills that students will need to be successful in my grade level's course.
3. I can determine what the Science Baseline Assessments should look like.
4. I can create helpful documents for the Curriculum Guide for teachers to understand the Science standards and literacy anchor standards and attain more consistency across the district.
5. I can improve the learning targets, criteria for success, and sequencing on the Curriculum Guide based on feedback from teachers.
6. I can improve the district Benchmark Assessments based on feedback from teachers.
7. I can give feedback on the work that needs to be completed during 2013 CRW.

Non-negotiable skills

What are the non-negotiable Science skills that students need when they enter your grade level so that they are successful in your grade level Science course?

Topics to discuss...

  • Baseline Assessment
  • Curriculum Guide format
  • Year/semester-at-a-glance
  • Other documents to create to help teachers

Work Time!

Work with your team on...
-Curriculum Guide: learning targets, criteria for success, sequencing, other supporting documents (use the feedback from teachers)
-Assessments: Baseline, Benchmark Assessments (use the feedback from teachers)


**What work needs to be done or what documents need to be created for teachers to understand the standards?


NOTE: MS needs to be consistent among the grade span (6-8) and HS needs to be consistent among the grade span (9-12)
