Educational Standards

Meeting educational standards has become more demanding and complex as more levels of government become further involved in the education of students.  Teachers need to meet standards at federal, state, and district levels.  This means that lessons can not be dedicated to one standard or even one subject area.  The teacher must be able to design lessons that meet the local curriculum but also come in line with standards at all levels of government. At the same time it is important to remember the testing that has become so much a part of the educational experience.  Lessons need to provide students with experiences that will enable them to be successful on standardized tests, without being so similar to a test format that the teacher is "teaching to the test."

Please follow the link below to view a lesson I have created and how it meets standards at a variety of levels.
