    1. This is a multi-layer step so let's break it apart piece by piece. You identify the standards by how I posted above. Go to the state department of education website and copy and paste the standards, being sure to include where you got all information from to avoid plagiarism.

    Once you have the standard, re-write the standard in common language. Believe it or not, I have to had to do this numerous times in the field of education, just because state standards are written at such a high language ability. Here is my example from the Colorado Department of Education website:

    From the Colorado Department of Education: "Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 7 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies."

    Students will need to know the meaning of words they may not know based on 7th grade reading material. They will learn a range of strategies to help them achieve the definition of a word.

    See how those two standards are ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution includes an explanation of how to identify learning targets using state standards, rewrite these learning targets into common language that parents and students can understand, and then plan a unit of learning around those standards.

    Once you have the learning targets the solution will also discuss what it means to meet the standards of these learning targets and how to gather evidence to justify a unit of learning.
