Lachat, Mary Ann
This report on education standards considers national educational reform, New Hampshire initiatives, and implications of education standards for students with special needs. Included is information on national curriculum standards projects for mathematics, art, history, civics and government, geography, English and foreign languages, economics, and science. New Hampshire curriculum frameworks are discussed, and suggestions are offered for implementation by school districts. Information is also provided on the New Hampshire Educational Assessment Program, which includes performance-based testing. In considering students with special needs, topics include: how schools can include students with varying functional needs in a standards-based framework, what instructional methods are needed for including students with diverse needs in a standards-based curriculum framework, using individualized education plans to support the use of education standards for students with disabilities, the use of performance standards for students with disabilities, and accommodations during assessment. Also considered are curriculum frameworks developed by the Secretary of Labor's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) and the National Center on Educational Outcomes. Appendices include a glossary and list of resource groups. (Contains 77 references and 9 figures.) (SW)
