Honors Course Implementation Guide. Division of Secondary Education
North Carolina Department of Public Instruction
At its November 2004 meeting, the North Carolina State Board of Education approved standards for developing and implementing honors courses in that state. These standards in curriculum, instruction, and assessment are designed to provide a consistent framework to guide teachers and principals as they develop and evaluate local courses that are aligned to the state-adopted standards. The materials in this document should be used by teacher/course developers as a foundation to customize honors courses incorporating the unique needs and interests of their students. These teacher/course developers will also embed in their locally-developed honors courses a variety of background preparations and expertise from their personal experiences, as well as the resources available in their districts to support their honors courses. The material included in each content area's section should be used as a starting point or springboard for individual teacher or district level honors course development and implementation. The state-adopted standards provide the framework and allow for local development within this framework. Appended are: (1) Memorandum of Understanding on Community College Honors Courses; (2) Comprehensive Articulation Agreement; and (3) Frequently Asked Questions. (Individual sections and appendixes have references.)
