Software for Standards-based Learning

Learning Targets

TeacherEase supports the transition to standards-based learning. Most organizations start by unpacking standards and writing learning targets. They break down state standards, common core, etc into individually teachable concepts. Targets are often written as "I can ..." statements. Student-friendly language helps students engage in learning, take ownership of their progress, and understand feedback. Educators can learn by browsing each others' learning targets. Committees can cooperatively build a foundation for instruction and assessment. Standards-based learning is a journey, and TeacherEase helps you be successful.

Write learning targets

For each course, define the skills students should learn. These are typically written as "I can ..." statements using language understandable to students.

Break down standards into teachable concepts

Standards are often big and complex. Create smaller learning targets that can be individually instructed by unpacking standards. This makes standards operational in the classroom.

Help teachers think about standards-based learning

Writing learning targets has professional development value. It helps teachers think deeply about how students learn. This experience often results in better instruction and assessment.

Browse other teachers learning targets

Teachers can learn from each other by viewing learning targets. They can see how other educators unpacked the same standards and organized their targets. This cross-pollination helps teachers develop professionally.

Copy and share learning targets

As teachers browse others’ targets, they can also copy them. They can benefit from others’ experience.

Enable committees to collaborate building learning targets

Transitioning to standards-based learning is often a team effort. TeacherEase provides a platform for committees to work together and optimize targets for the entire organization.

Compare learning targets with other districts/schools

Cooperate with other TeacherEase customers. Share learning targets and see how others approach the same content.

Better engage students

By writing understandable learning targets, students have a framework to process feedback, engage in learning, and take ownership.

Create a vocabulary for student feedback

When students understand the targets, it provides a framework to receive feedback. Educators can have richer conversations with students about their knowledge and areas of improvement.

Identify curriculum gaps and overlaps

Thoughtfully write learning targets within and across grade levels to construct coherent curriculum that builds upon previously mastered topics. Eliminate unnecessary repetition that wastes instruction time. Find gaps that lead to confusion and incomplete cognitive scaffolds.

Build a foundation for instruction and assessment

After writing learning targets, educators and committees can continue onto rubrics, assessments, instructional content, etc. The learning targets are just the first step, and can be expanded upon.
