Facilitated trainings for additional learning standards modules are offered throughout the program year by ABS instructors who are also state learning standards trainers. Self-study versions of the modules are available on Canvas LMS.
The OACCRS/OAELPS Orientation Module provides a vital baseline knowledge of the standards that is necessary to participate in the modules below. Participants must complete the Orientation Module before taking additional modules or participating in a standards-based PLC.
It is recommended, but not required, that participants take the modules in order.
PLC activities related to the module topics are available in the "Professional Learning Communities" section.
Register for facilitated trainings on the ABS PD Calendar or email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the modules on Canvas.
- Math Module 1: The Key Shifts
Learn about the Key Shifts in content and instruction that underlie the standards: Focus, Rigor, and Coherence.
- Math Module 2: The Mathematical Standards of Practice
Learn about the 8 Standards of Mathematical Practice: essential habits of mind and action that describe student behaviors, ensure an understanding of math, and focus on developing reasoning and building mathematical communication.
- Math Module 3: The Mathematical Standards of Content
Use a variety of tools to develop their understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Content and begin to apply these standards to your practice.
- Math Module 4: Integrating the Key Shifts, Standards for Mathematical Practice, and Standards for Mathematical Content
Bring it all together and practice applying all the components of the standards to your own practice.
Please note that the Language Arts/ESOL Modules below incorporate both OACCRS-LA and OAELPS, with an opportunity for participants to engage with whichever set of standards meets their needs.
