Welcome to Bibb County Public Schools Demonstrating Knowledge of Curriculum, Content & Resources Created by: Theresa M. May (Howard Middle), Harold Teel (Rutland Middle), & LeAnn Wachtel (Butler Early Childhood Center)
Curriculum is sequenced and organized to ensure that ALL students are taught the essential content as outlined in the Quality Core Curriculum (QCC), Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) and Content Standards (PreK). Knowledge of CURRICULUM
QCC / GPS Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) has been or is currently being replaced by Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) for K-12. For frequently asked questions go to: www.georgiastandards.orgfaqs.aspx#qz www.georgiastandards.orgfaqs.aspx#qz
Content Standards (PreK) Georgia's Pre-K Content Standards provide a foundation for instruction in all Pre-K classrooms. They reflect current educational research and are aligned with Georgia's Performance Standards for grades K - 12.
Lesson Plans Objectives for your lessons should be based on QCC, GPS, or Content Standards. These standards should be used for planning instruction and assessing student’s work. These standards can be found on one of the following websites: www.georgiastandards.org www.glc.k12.ga.us/qcc www.decal.state.ga.us/prekwww.georgiastandards.org www.decal.state.ga.us/prek
What is SST/504, IEP and EIP? How do they effect what and how we teach in the classroom? SST - Student Support Team is a process by which an interdisciplinary team addresses learning and/or behavior problems of students. A standard form is used for addressing the instructional support needed for each student. Section 504 - This law refers to students who have physical or mental impairments that significantly affect major life activities and academic progress. Students who qualify for this service are provided legal modifications for the disability and don’t fit the criteria to qualify for special education services. This document is legally binding and teachers are required to monitor and provide appropriate services as listed. IEP - Individualized Education Plan is a written statement for a student with a disability that is developed, implemented, reviewed, and revised in accordance with Special Education rules and regulations. This document is legally binding and teachers are required to monitor and provide appropriate services as listed. EIP - Early Intervention Program is designed to serve students in grades kindergarten through grade five who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level. This service is provided to students in order to obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade- level performance in the shortest possible time.
Knowledge of CONTENT Teachers should expect high academic achievement for ALL students. Teachers should know their content and be able to provide opportunities for students to apply the content.
BEST PRACTICES There are Nine Essential Instructional Strategies which are most likely to improve student achievement for ALL students in ALL subject areas at ALL grade levels. Adapted from Classroom Instruction That Works by Marzano, Pickering and Pollock, 2001
