Standards-Based Learning Videos
The Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks provide teachers, students and families with clear and shared expectations for what all students should know and be able to do at the end of each year. They represent a promise of equitable education for all students. They formalize the expectation that all students in the Commonwealth have access to the same academic content, regardless of their zip code, background, or abilities.
The following videos illustrate standards-based learning. They provide an overview of how educators are approaching standards based learning in different content areas and grades. We encourage you to share them with members of your educational community.
