Description

Can your students understand and even generate
proficiency scales?

Academic standards call for
increased rigour, but simply raising complexity is not enough. Students need to
be able to understand learning goals, embedded in proficiency scales, which
include application of knowledge. They should even be capable of generating
their own learning scales. In turn, teachers must become adept at providing
rigorous learning goals and planning and scaffolding instruction to meet
students' needs.


Creating & Using Learning Goals & Proficiency Scales: How Teachers Make Better Instructional
Decisions
explores explicit techniques for mastering this
crucial strategy of instructional practice. It includes:



  • explicit steps for implementation

  • recommendations for monitoring students'
    ability to understand learning goals

  • adaptations for students who
    struggle, have special needs or excel in learning

  • examples and non-examples from classroom
    practice

  • common mistakes and ways to avoid them


The Essentials for Achieving Rigour
series of instructional guides helps educators become highly skilled at
implementing, monitoring and adapting instruction. Put it to practical use
immediately, adopting day-to-day examples as models for application in your own
classroom.
