Unwrapping the Standards

Unwrapping the Standards


Unwrapping the standards is the process of identifying the concepts and skills in the NYS Standards (the general statements of learning outcomes - what students need to know and be able to do) and the performance indicators (grade/level specific learning outcomes).  Unwrapping the standards will also include identifying the "Big Ideas" of the standard as they relate to learning and form the basis of the development of essential questions.  The ultimate goal is for students to be able to answer the essential questions in their own words, using elements of the "Big Ideas" within the particular context teachers use to teach the concepts and skills.
