Tennessee State Board of Education, Nashville.
This document presents recommendations made by Tennessee's High School Advisory Task Force, with a focus on describing what students should know and be able to do after completing high school. Nine elements that are essential for schoolwide reform are identified: a core curriculum, a focused plan of study, active learning, an integrated curriculum, extra support to meet student needs, assessment of learning, a schoolwide improvement plan, and provision of professional development. Statements about expectations for students are offered in the areas of communications; critical thinking and problem solving; mathematics; science, technology, and society; national and international awareness; arts and humanities; wellness and fitness; career education and work; and personal growth and responsibility. Specifications about what knowledge or skill students should be able to demonstrate accompany each statement. (LMI)
