Grad Rule 101 Website in Support of Minnesota Graduation Rule Standards: A Preservice Teacher Education Project.
Kemp, Leroy, Ed.; Ballard, Peggy, Ed.
The Grad Rule 101 Web site is designed to help college and university faculty with instructional support relative to enhancing preservice teachers' knowledge, skills, and dispositions of the Minnesota Graduation Standards. It uses a variety of tasks that allow preservice teachers to become familiar with the structure, requirements, and specifications of the Minnesota Graduation Standards. It also trains users in the careful evaluation of their newly developed instruction and assessments. It allows participants to develop a broader understanding of standards-based education by providing modules that compare and contrast content standards from other states and from the national content organizations. Part one, "Introduction to Standards-Based Education," presents the "Rationale";"National Professional Organizations"; "State-by-State P-12 Organizations"; and "Minnesota Graduation Rule." Part two, "Preparatory Standards," discusses: "Learning Area 3: The Arts" ("Primary Level,""Middle Level," and "Intermediate Level" [Sheila Wright]); "Learning Area 4: Mathematical Applications" (Ron Browne); "Learning Area 5: Inquiry" (Warren Sandmann); and "Learning Area 7: People and Cultures""(Primary Level,""Middle Level," and "Intermediate Level" [Sheila Wright]). Part 3, "High Standards," discusses: "Learning Area 1: Read, Listen, and View" (John Banschbach and Warren Sandmann); "Learning Area 2: Write and Speak" (John Banschbach and Warren Sandmann); "Learning Area 3: The Arts" (John Banschbach, Warren Sandmann, and Sheila Wright); "Learning Area 4: Mathematical Applications" (Kil S.
