The Buzz About the Standards Alignment Process


Published on

CAST (Collaborative Alignment Support Team)

How does a group of educators and industry professionals come together effectively in the process of aligning curriculum with their individual standards? This session will demonstrate how to use a Collaborative Alignment Template and how this template is designed to align instructional units with the Model Curriculum Standards – both Academic Content Standards and Career Technical Education Standards. During this session participants will also work through the process that allows for building of future curriculum utilizing the Collaborative Alignment Template. Flash drives with the template, the California Standards and Framework, as well as aligned curriculum samples and other resources will be handed out to participants.
