Often the students and teachers’ voices are left out of planning due to curriculum maps. The Essentials for Standards-Driven Classrooms allows educators to comprehend what it means to put standards at the heart of their work while focusing on the students. Teachers are allowed to intentionally plan for their classroom through learning targets that are aligned to the highest level of the taxonomy. Rigor will be front and center of all classrooms with the support of this book.

Our PLC’s have reached a point of stagnation, and I’m excited to have the Essentials model to help jump start our PLC work so that we can continue to improve student learning. The switch to using real time data will increase PLC member buy-in and allow us to make immediate changes to improve student learning.
