A Parent's Primer. Beginning with Standards. New Visions for Public Schools Performance Standards Series. [Videotape].
This video is one of a four-part series which is designed to introduce teachers and parents to standards and teaching in a standards-based environment, and aims to help teachers and parents understand how teaching with standards can change classrooms, work assignments, and student performance. This video, "A Parent's Primer," demonstrates what teaching in a standards-based environment looks like in elementary and middle school. It uses teachers, students, administrators, and parents to explain what standards are, how teaching and learning are different in a classroom using standards, and who benefits from standards. (PM)
