Power Standards is a step-by-step, practical manual that explains how educators can distinguish the Power Standards—standards that are absolutely essential for student success—from those that are 'nice to know.'
In all 50 states, standards have become the critical focus for achieving the results that schools are expected to produce. However, educators know that most states have too many standards to be taught effectively during one academic year. Striving to cover everything, educators admit to teaching many of the standards only superficially. In addition, educators often consider all standards equal when, in fact, certain standards are more important than others.
Now, in Power Standards: Identifying the Standards that Matter the Most, Larry Ainsworth shows all educators not only how to create a prioritized subset of their own state or district standards, but also how to use these Power Standards to guide the development of meaningful curriculum and assessment. The straightforward and easy-to-read format enables readers to immediately apply these proven, practical strategies. Now, educators can significantly improve achievement for all students—by first identifying the standards that matter the most!
