Keeping the Focus

The successful implementation of standards-based instruction requires teachers to embrace a continuous improvement cycle that focuses on effective teaching and learning practices.

With guidance by Dr. Melissa Castillo, the principal trainer of MelCast Educational Consulting, teachers at Oakman Elementary are reflecting deeply on their content and language objectives aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

They have committed to looking at the standards to make good decisions about the skills they need to teach aligned to those standards.  The planning continues by then designing an academic task aligned to the standard that can be used to measure how well students are meeting the standards.
