The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
Along with CCSS, I will be basing lessons off of the ISTE and Next Generation Science Standards. Both of these are national standard systems for technology and science.
As the STEM teacher, my standards are integrated into the grade level standards. I will be working with teachers to help supplement the work they do and incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into the specials rotation.
