Standards Plus® lessons are written specifically to all grade level standards. Lessons are led by teachers and students have multiple opportunities to practice appropriate grade level standards.
Each lesson starts with a written objective statement that informs students and teachers of the expected outcomes of each lesson. The lesson plans include teacher instruction, guided practice, independent practice, and a concluding statement or question to close the learning loop. Students are guided by teachers as they practice specific concepts on four to six items per lesson.
Because Standards Plus lessons are designed to provide immediate teacher feedback throughout each lesson, students receive real-time remediation. This reinforces learning, ensures that students do not practice errors, and helps students retain information to crystalize their learning.
Standards Plus lessons are organized in lesson sets of four lessons per standard (or related standards) and an accompanying four to six item formative assessment.
Standards Plus is produced by Learning Plus Associates, a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to creating and providing solutions that increase student achievement and support teacher delivery of high-quality, effective instruction on a daily basis. The lessons are based upon the research of Effective Schools Correlates, Edward Deming’s Total Quality Management (TQM), and models of effective instruction. A team of content and grade level experts wrote the Common Core Standards Plus lessons to meet the skills, concepts, depth, and rigor of the Common Core Standards.
