On August 26, 2011, NCDPI released the Understanding the Standards module. This module provides an overview of the new standards, instructional support tools, and timeline. After a brief overview, content-area teachers can complete specific module sections on the subject areas of their choice. These content-specific sections provide clear examples of the major differences in the standards as well as the difference in student expectations.
Understanding the Standards lends itself to a blended approach of professional development. The module provides interactive activities and questions best explored in small groups.
