Auburn School District 408 POWER
STANDARDS September 3, 2009 Cindi Blansfield,
Secondary Student Learning Director
2
Essential Learnings for this session…
  • Why were power standards created?
  • What are power standards?
  • How do power standards relate to state standards?
  • How were power standards created?
  • What about content areas that currently do not
    have power standards?
  • How does this impact me as a teacher?
  • What are the expectations and next steps?

3
After this session you will have the opportunity
with the colleagues in your building to debrief
presentations on part 1 of PLCs and Power
Standards.
4
  • Mission
  • …all students will achieve high standards of
    learning…

5
  • Goal 1 Student Achievement
  • Objectives
  • 1a. Professional Learning Communities
  • 1b. School Improvement Plans
  • 1c. K-12 Standards-Based Focus

6
The launching point for Professional Learning
Communities is answering question number one…
  • What knowledge and skills should every student
    acquire as a result of this class, course, or
    grade level?
  • How will we know each student has acquired the
    essential knowledge and skills?
  • How will we respond when some students do not
    learn?
  • How will we respond when some students have
    clearly achieved the intended outcomes?

7
  • Standards are fair. Standards are effective. And
    they will never be implemented solely by virtue
    of a state mandate. Their effective
    implementation will be the result of
    professionals collaborating at the local level to
    prioritize and apply the standards in a practical
    classroom setting.
  • Power Standards, Forward page xix, Dr. Douglas
    B. Reeves

8
The research says…
  • What Works in Schools, Dr. Robert Marzano
  • Results Now, Mike Schmoker
  • Making Standards Work, Dr. Douglas Reeves

…there are too many standards and not enough time
for any educator to be able to support every
student to achieve them all.
9
Power Standards
  • are based upon prioritized Washington State
    standards
  • identify critical or essential skills for student
    success (in school, in life and on the state
    test)
  • identify which state standards can be given less
    emphasis and
  • provide clarity and consistency across the
    district.

10
Prioritization of state standards…not elimination
of state standards
11
Criteria for Identifying a Power Standard
  • EnduranceWill this standard or indicator provide
    students with knowledge and skills that will be
    of value beyond a single test date?
  • LeverageWill this provide knowledge and skills
    that will be of value in multiple disciplines?
  • Readiness for the next level of learningWill
    this provide students with essential knowledge
    and skills that are necessary for success in the
    next grade or the next level of instruction?

What does this mean for me as a teacher?
  • Clarifies for all teachers and administrators
    across the district what students are expected to
    know and be able to do in each grade level and
    content area--guaranteed
  • Targets teaching and learning
  • Establishes a common foundation to collaborate
    with colleagues about student achievement

18
Whats Next?
  • Continued professional development for teachers
    on professional learning communities
  • Use power standards as a common point for
    teachers to collaborate about what students are
    expected to know and be able to do in each
    content and grade level
  • Communicate power standards to parents
  • Describe standards to students in kid-friendly
    language

19
Steps for Implementation
  • Establish a clear understanding of the power
    standards and supporting standards
  • Collaborate with grade-level and content-area
    colleagues about what students are expected to
    know and be able to doquestion 1
  • Re-organize teaching and learning based upon
    prioritization of standards (keep, drop, create)
