Title: Power Standards a.k.a. Essential Standards, Core Standards


1
Power Standards (a.k.a. Essential Standards, Core
Standards)
  • PLC Question 1
  • What do we expect students to learn?

2
National Mathematics Advisory Panel Final Report
  • Finding 32…
  • …districts should strive for greater agreement
    regarding which topics will be emphasized and
    covered at particular grades.

3
Power Standards
  • coined by Dr. Douglas Reeves of the Center of
    Performance Assessment
  • (Power Standards are) those standards that, once
    mastered, give a student the ability to use
    reasoning and thinking skills to learn and
    understand other curriculum objectives.

4
The Safety Net Curriculum
  • Dr. Douglas Reeves refers to Power Standards as
    the safety net curriculum
  • a very limited set of learning objectives
    organized for each grade and for each subject.

5
The Safety Net Curriculum
  • Power Standards are
  • NOT the total curriculum
  • The safety net that every teacher should ensure
    that every student knows.

6
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • are a prioritized subset of the state standards.

7
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • are derived from a systematic and balanced
    approach.

8
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • represent our ultimate goals for student
    achievement.

9
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • give school systems a common focus.

10
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • represent the must teach - must learn.

11
What are Power Standards?
  • Power Standards…
  • represent a deep standards-based vertical
    conversation.

12
The Wish List
  • On your paper…
  • Write your grade level and one subject area you
    teach
  • List three concepts or skills you wish every
    student had mastery of before they enter your
    classroom
  • Post your wish list

13
Wish List Examples
14
Why Power Standards?
  • Educators who are given no strategies for
    managing the volume of standards must, on their
    own, pick and choose the ones they believe will
    most benefit their students.

15
Pick and Choose method
  • Inconsistencies as to which standards are
    emphasized and which are not.
  • Gaps in the learning continuum begin to show.
  • Educators feel that they must cover all the
    standards with less than optimum depth.
  • Negative impact on high stakes assessments if the
    wrong standards are targeted.

16
Why Power Standards?
  • Educators need the opportunity to deepen
    knowledge and understanding of the state
    standards on a vertical level…

17
Teaming
  • The power is in the conversation
  • Professional learning community opportunity
  • Vertical teaming

18
Power Standards?!?
  • ALL standards will still be taught, but more
    emphasis
  • will be placed on the
  • Power Standards.

19
How to Identify Power Standards
  • Criteria of
  • Endurance
  • Leverage
  • Readiness for the next grade
  • Testable
  • Essential Question What do your students need
    for success in school (this year, next year and
    so on), in life, and on the state tests?

20
Power Standards Identification Criteria
  • Endurance Will this standard or indicator
    provide students with knowledge and skills that
    will be of value beyond a single test date?

21
Power Standards Identification Criteria
  • 2. Leverage Will this standard or indicator
    provide knowledge and skills that will be of
    value in multiple disciplines?

22
Power Standards Identification Criteria
  • 3. Readiness for the next level of learning
  • Will this standard or indicator provide knowledge
    and skills that is required for the next level of
    learning?

23
Lets Try It…
  • What you need for this activity
  • Criteria Recording Sheet
  • State Mathematics Standards
  • State Test Item Specifications

24
Criteria Recording Sheet
  • Score with a check mark on each of the following
  • Does it have leverage?
  • Does it have endurance?
  • Will it prepare the students to move forward?
  • Will it be tested?

25
Power Standards Identification Criteria
  • An Essential Question to keep in your mind as you
    identify Power Standards
  • What do your students need for success in
  • School
  • Life
  • State Test

26
Final Thoughts
  • Identifying Power Standards does not relieve
    teachers of the responsibility for teaching all
    standards and indicators.
  • It must be decided which standards are critical
    for student success, and which other ones can be
    given less emphasis.
  • The power is in the conversation!!!
