Understanding Vermont's Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities. Second Edition.
Graham, Christine; Marsters, David
As part of Vermont's efforts to set shared educational goals, this document describes what is expected of Vermont students. It is designed as a guide to parents about what teachers and schools are doing to help students meet the state's new expectations. Vermont has defined an educational framework that encourages many different learning styles and circumstances. The Framework links skills and subjects with the conditions and practices that are known to be most likely to lead to student success. It is divided into "Vital Results" (skills) and "Fields of Knowledge" (specific subjects students should know). Some examples are given of the Framework for different subjects and grade levels. How the framework operates in an individual school is outlined, and suggestions are given for parent participation. (SLD)
