This resource provides facilitator notes and timelines for use by professional developers as they help teachers move from being standards-referenced to standards-based. With the introduction of the Common Core, it has become even more important that educators be as knowledgeable and skillfull as possible with best practice in planning based on clearly defined learning standards. Marching through a textbook or completion of worksheets just won’t cut it now! This text also includes an extensive array of copy-ready graphic organizers and templates for teacher use in designing and implementing standards-based lessons in their classrooms. Elementary, middle, and high school exemplars of the templates are provided. These tools are perfect for collaborative use in team and department meetings.
