Instructional Resources & Practices
We must design engaging learning experiences for our students.
This requires us to:
- Own a strong understanding of every student's assets, needs, interests, and aspirations.
- Build from the Colorado Academic Standards, emphasizing 21st Century Skills.
- Use our instructional models, base curricula, and additional resources to plan for high levels of cognitive engagement.
- Inform learning targets with formative data, interim data, and the Exit Criteria in mind.
Grade Level Core Content
Each grade-level resource includes:
Exit Criteria- A synthesis of the standards for each content and grade level. 21st century skills, language, and CRE should be explicitly developed in all grade levels and contents
Instructional Models-Provide recommended instructional strategies, methods, and planning resources.
