Standards-based Instruction and Assessment

Workshop #4

  • Standards-driven Curricula
  • Assessment


The CSRA Hub Curriculum Leadership Institute (CLI) teachers in Aiken County participated in a June workshop for the purpose of developing a standard's based instructional aid for teachers. A new document, A Guidebook for Teachrs and Administrators: Using Standards to Drive Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment was produced in the statewide workshop sponsored by the State Department of Education and the SC Statewide Systemic Initiative.

To facilitate dissemination and expansion of the Guidebook, several regional sessions were held this summer for district representatives in various areas around the state. The CLI teachers will assist in this effort by helping to familiarizing other K-12 teachers of Aiken County with this new document, the new SC Curriculum Standards, the new Aiken County Science and Mathematics Curriculum Guides and the Sc Accountability Act. All of these documents will impact student performance on the new Palmetto Academic Challenge Test (PACT), Model lessons, which include sample Guidebook and Aiken County Curriculum Guide modules.

The CLI teachers will work with the Aiken County Curriculum Guide Committee in the scheduled monthly grade-level sessions beginning in September. These sessions for K-12 teachers on the alignment of local curriculum guides and the SC Curriculum Standards will be a continuation of the August District Inservices.

The CLI teachers assisting the Math Curriculum Guide Writing Team members are: Belinda Anthony, Chukker Creek Elementary; Esther Blake, Chukker Creek Elementary, Celeste Brockington, South Aiken High; Johnella Gaines, Allendale Elementary; Karey Santos, Aiken Elementary; Carolina Clay, Gloverville Elementary; Robin Glenn, North Augusta High; Harriet Pritchard, Blackville-Hilda High; Janice Kitchings, Busbee Elementary; Debra Rood, Aiken Elementary.
