IOWA CORE RESOURCES
A resource that allows users to dig deep into the substance of the standards. This level of detail is a tool for teachers, principals or curriculum staff - and it may be interesting for board members to get a sense of the tool, to understand the work of the staff.
This offers a crisp high-level view for board members and help parents understand the expectations.
The standards themselves identify the expectations for students. The key to success is changing teaching practices through new instructional methods, professional development, and a better approach to assessing student learning.
