Standards in the Classroom


SKU 9780761938576 Category


`The success or failure of reform in education depends on how well each teacher learns how to implement standards in classroom instruction. This guide should be helpful in that process’ – National Science Teachers Association, Washington



In this book, Richard H Audet and Linda K Jordan give teachers the tools they need to understand standards and benchmarks, use a standards-based instructional planning model, analyze curriculum using a standards lens, and align curriculum to students’ learning goals. After completing the guide, teachers will be able to design performance-based assessment strategies, implement a standards-based instructional model, evaluate and align curriculum materials to standards. Designed to be sensitive to teachers’ needs, the manuscript is clearly written, easy to use, practical, embedded in a classroom context, and tied to student achievement. The authors use a constructivist approach and a five-stage learning cycle that models good teaching. As the authors state, standards are here to stay.


This book provides the missing link in standards-based reform. It book will give staff developers the tools they need to train teachers in this crucial step-designing curriculum & assessment around standards.
