  • 27. Further Considerations
    • Fewer, clearer, higher: (NC DPI Language)
      • produce a set of fewer, clearer and higher standards.
      • cover only those areas that are critical for student success
      • scaffolded and developmental
    • Internationally benchmarked:
      • informed by the content, rigor and organization of standards of high-performing countries and states
      • all students are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society.
    • Special populations:
      • the inclusion of all types of learners was a priority
      • recognized that special populations may require additional time and appropriate instructional support with aligned assessments
      • selected language intended to make the standards documents accessible to different learners
  • 28. Annotating the Anchors K-12 College & Career Readiness
    • Draw a box around each STRAND
    • Underline each CLUSTER
