About This Book
In many schools and districts, the local curriculum is a hodgepodge of individual initiatives knit together by collective good intentions. Succeeding with Standards: Linking Curriculum, Assessment, and Action Planning describes a practical, school-tested solution to the challenge of creating a curriculum. Building on their work in How to Use Standards in the Classroom, Judy F. Carr and Douglas E. Harris describe a comprehensive process by which schools and districts can turn piecemeal initiatives into a coherent plan.
Carr and Harris draw on extensive experience with schools across the United States, and groundbreaking work in Vermont, to depict the standards-linking process. They describe how to
They also consider how to approach reporting results and professional development in a standards-based environment.

Plentiful figures and examples highlight Carr and Harris’s insights and advice. An extensive glossary and helpful list of selected resources round out the volume.
