Thinking About Standards Standards are big picture ideas about what is important for students to know and be able to do. Standards are value driven and influenced by educational stakeholders: business, government, community. Standards are big picture, so they might appear more vague, or broad. This allows for districts and teachers to meet the goals, or parameters of the standards in ways that are most appropriate for their particular students’ and stakeholders’ needs.

Thinking About Standards The current standards movement is tied into educational accountability and the beginnings can be traced back to the early 80’s, largely influenced by the publication: A Nation At Risk and Reganomics. Professional organizations have been engaged in developing standards to maintain the greatest degree of control and integrity over what is considered important for students to know and be able to do.

This change recognizes a major shift in how we must service K-12 English learners given the high- stakes testing for students.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
