Standards-Based Instruction Series

“One Size Fits All” is a phrase that we are all familiar with but may find challenging to avoid when designing instruction. All educators want what is best for their students; understanding, independence, success, and perseverance. Standards-Based learning provides transparency to your students, their families, and your administration in order to communicate clearly what students have learned and need to practice.
