On November 13 2017 I formally adopted the Wisconsin Standards for Science This revised set of. academic standards provides a foundational framework that identifies what students should know and. be able to do in Science, The adoption of the Wisconsin Standards for Science was part of a concerted effort led by Wisconsin. educators and stakeholders who shared their expertise in science and teaching from kindergarten. through higher education The public and legislature provided feedback for the writing committee to. consider as part of Wisconsin s Academic Standards review and revision process. Science is an essential part of a comprehensive PK 12 education for all students The knowledge techniques and citizenry skills. gained through science education in Wisconsin schools support the overall goal of helping all students become college and. career ready Scientific literacy is a critical elementary of being able to make sense of the world around us including the. abundant information shared in our ever changing world. The knowledge and skills described provide a framework with actionable indicators for science classroom experiences The key. goal of the standards is for students make sense of phenomena and solve problems using scientific content understanding. practices and ways of thinking Teaching content for the purpose of covering a set range of topics is not the intent of these. standards instead as research suggests students should be learning scientific ideas through deeply exploring scientific. phenomena and solving culturally relevant local problems. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will continue to build on this work to support implementation of the standards. with resources for the field I am excited to share the Wisconsin Standards for Science which aim to build science skills. knowledge ways of thinking and engagement opportunities for all Wisconsin students.

Wisconsin Standards for Name of Standard viii,Wisconsin s Approach to Academic Standards. Purpose of the Document, The purpose of this guide is to improve science education for students and for communities The Wisconsin Department of Public. Instruction DPI has developed standards to assist Wisconsin educators and stakeholders in understanding developing and. implementing science course offerings and curriculum in school districts across Wisconsin. This publication provides a vision for student success and follows The Guiding Principles for Teaching and Learning 2011 In brief. the principles are,1 Every student has the right to learn. 2 Instruction must be rigorous and relevant, 3 Purposeful assessment drives instruction and affects learning. 4 Learning is a collaborative responsibility, 5 Students bring strengths and experiences to learning.
6 Responsive environments engage learners, Program leaders will find the guide valuable for making decisions about. Program structure and integration,Curriculum redesign. Staffing and staff development,Scheduling and student grouping. Facility organization,Learning spaces and materials development. Resource allocation and accountability, Collaborative work with other units of the school district and community.
Wisconsin Standards for Name of Standard 1,What Are the Academic Standards. Wisconsin Academic Standards specify what students should know and be able to do in the classroom They serve as goals for. teaching and learning Setting high standards enables students parents educators and citizens to know what students should. have learned at a given point in time In Wisconsin all state standards serve as a model Locally elected school boards adopt. academic standards in each subject area to best serve their local communities We must ensure that all children have equal. access to high quality education programs Clear statements about what students must know and be able to do are essential in. making sure our schools offer opportunities to get the knowledge and skills necessary for success beyond the classroom. Adopting these standards is voluntary Districts may use the academic standards as guides for developing local grade by grade. level curriculum Implementing standards may require some school districts to upgrade school and district curriculums This may. result in changes in instructional methods and materials local assessments and professional development opportunities for the. teaching and administrative staff, What is the Difference between Academic Standards and Curriculum. Standards are statements about what students should know and be able to do what they might be asked to do to give evidence. of learning and how well they should be expected to know or do it Curriculum is the program devised by local school districts. used to prepare students to meet standards It consists of activities and lessons at each grade level instructional materials and. various instructional techniques In short standards define what is to be learned at certain points in time and from a broad. perspective what performances will be accepted as evidence that the learning has occurred Curriculum specifies the details of. the day to day schooling at the local level,Developing the Academic Standards. DPI has a transparent and comprehensive process for reviewing and revising academic standards The process begins with a. notice of intent to review an academic area with a public comment period The State Superintendent s Standards Review Council. examines those comments and may recommend revision or development of standards in that academic area The state. superintendent authorizes whether or not to pursue a revision or development process Following this a state writing. committee is formed to work on those standards for all grade levels That draft is then made available for open review to get. feedback from the public key stakeholders educators and the Legislature with further review by the State Superintendent s. Standards Review Council The state superintendent then determines adoption of the standards. Wisconsin Standards for Name of Standard 2,Aligning for Student Success. To build and sustain schools that support every student in achieving success educators must work together with families. community members and business partners to connect the most promising practices to the most meaningful contexts The. release of the Wisconsin Standards for Science provides a set of important academic standards for school districts to implement. This is connected to a larger vision of every child graduating college career and community ready The graphic below illustrates. the relationship between academic standards and other critical principles and efforts that function together to educate every. child to graduate future ready Here the vision and set of Guiding Principles form the foundation for building a supportive. process for teaching and learning rigorous and relevant content The following sections articulate this integrated approach to. increasing student success in Wisconsin schools and communities. Relating the Academic Standards to All Students, Grade level standards should allow ALL students to engage access and be assessed in ways that fit their strengths needs and.
interests This applies to the achievement of students with IEPs individualized education plans English learners and gifted and. talented pupils consistent with all other students Academic standards serve as the foundation for individualized programming. decisions for all students, Academic standards serve as a valuable basis for establishing concrete meaningful goals as part of each student s developmental. progress and demonstration of proficiency Students with IEPs must be provided specially designed instruction that meets their. individual needs It is expected that each individual student with an IEP will require unique services and supports matched to. their strengths and needs in order to close achievement gaps in grade level standards Alternate standards are only available for. students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. Gifted and talented students may achieve well beyond the academic standards and move into advanced grade levels or into. advanced coursework, Our Vision Every Child a Graduate College and Career Ready. We are committed to ensuring every child graduates from high school academically prepared and socially and emotionally. competent A successful Wisconsin student is proficient in academic content and can apply their knowledge through skills such. as critical thinking communication collaboration and creativity The successful student will also possess critical habits such as. perseverance responsibility adaptability and leadership This vision for every child as a college career and community ready. graduate guides our beliefs and approaches to education in Wisconsin. Wisconsin Standards for Name of Standard 3,Guided by Principles. All educational initiatives are guided and impacted by important and often unstated attitudes or principles for teaching and. learning The Guiding Principles for Teaching and Learning 2011 emerge from research and provide the touchstone for practices. that truly affect the vision of Every Child a Graduate Prepared for College and Career When made transparent these principles. inform what happens in the classroom direct the implementation and evaluation of programs and most importantly remind us.
