Welcome to the website of the Standards and Instructional Support (SIS) office! As part of our continuing efforts to provide Colorado educators with support tools for the implementation of the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS), we use this front page to highlight new additions to the website.
This month we are excited to announce the release of full instructional units based on the Colorado Academic Standards. On March 31st, over 100 full instructional units, authored by teams of educators representing Colorado school districts (Project Participation Map), will be posted on this website. These units will include learning experiences, teacher and student resources, assessment ideas, and differentiation options. Based on select unit overview samples, there will be one unit for each grade (k-12) for each academic content area.
Sample Instructional Unit: “Boom and Bust” a full unit for 4th grade social studies is available now so that educators can preview the content and structure of these forthcoming units. Instructional unit samples will be accompanied with a unique storyboard which illustrates the sequence of learning experiences and performance assessment to help illuminate the trajectory and destination of each unit.
As always, we strive to ensure that visitors find value in their (re)visits to this website; that its content will consistently represent relevant, usable, and timely information/materials. Please let us know how we are doing!
