Book summary

In many schools and districts, the local curriculum is a hodgepodge of individual initiatives knit together by collective good intentions. Succeeding with Standards: Linking Curriculum, Assessment, and Action Planning describes a practical, school-tested solution to the challenge of creating a curriculum. Building on their work in How to Use Standards in the Classroom, Judy F. Carr and Douglas E. Harris describe a comprehensive process by which schools and districts can turn piecemeal initiatives into a coherent plan. Carr and Harris draw on extensive experience with schools across the United States, and groundbreaking work in Vermont, to depict the standards-linking process. They describe how to $ Create a curriculum and assessment plan $ Define effective practice $ Create a comprehensive assessment system $ Map out a path to success through action planning

They also consider how to approach reporting results and professional development in a standards-based environment. Improved student performance is the centerpiece of all these standards-linking processes. Carr and Harris emphasize this point, clearly keeping Standards Linking in the context of bettering academic performance for all children. Plentiful figures and examples highlight Carr and Harris=s insights and advice. An extensive glossary and helpful list of selected resources round out the volume. [via]
