Mathematics, Science & Technology Resource Guide.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Developing and improving learning standards has been an important part of education and the state of New York is engaged in a serious effort to raise standards for students. Learning standards have two primary dimensions. Content standards describe what students should know and understand while performance standards define levels of student achievement according to the content. This resource guide has been developed to demonstrate concretely how educators across the state are tackling standards-based teaching and learning and to address important aspects of the teaching and learning process. The guide is divided into three major sections. Part 1, "Planning a Standards-Based Curriculum: Curriculum Essentials," outlines those elements considered essential in planning a standards-based mathematics, science, and technology curriculum. It contains information on strategies for integrating mathematics, science, and technology at various grade levels; suggestions for creating equitable learning environments for all students; and examples of the best mathematics, science, and technology practices from teachers around the state. Samples of locally developed curricula, scope and sequence materials, and assessments are also included. Part 2, "Planning a Standards-Based Curriculum: Learning Experiences," presents standards-based learning experiences developed and reviewed by classroom teachers throughout the state of New York including activities that teachers presently use to bring learning standards to life in the classroom. Part 3, "Planning a Standards-Based Curriculum: Assessment Models," provides teachers with a variety of assessments which have been used in pilot situations; examples of mathematics, science, and technology integrated tasks; and assessment materials developed by teachers and administrators throughout the state.
