Summary

This publication helps identify ways in which high standards can be established and carried out in the classroom, discussing the importance of high standards and what has been learned from research about how teachers can help their students meet high learning goals. Chapter 1, "Introduction," examines the intent of standards, what has happened in the states regarding standards, and how teachers are the key to learning. Chapter 2, "The Keys to Literacy: Teaching Reading and Writing," discusses literacy standards, the standards-based curriculum, the importance of teacher knowledge, and effective classroom practices for literacy (e.g., balancing application and acquisition, tailoring instruction, and having meaningful conversations). Chapter 3, "Beyond Computation: Teaching Mathematics," examines mathematics standards, characteristics of an effective curriculum, the importance of teacher knowledge, and effective mathematics classroom practices (e.g., hands-on experience, meaningful classroom discussion, and supportive technology). Chapter 4, "Supporting Instructional Change," discusses professional development focused on standards, thinking systematically about improvement, short-term school improvement strategies, standards-based reform versus test-based reform, benefits of standards, and the future of standards. (Contains 139 references.) (SM)
