Someone wrote the question on the board, “do we use the standards to plan our lesson/project, or do we plan our lesson/project and then find the standards to match it?” We discussed this in class, and I think either would be acceptable. Right now, most of us aren’t very familiar with the standards for our content, so we may need to look over them before designing our lesson and project; however, I do think we all have a general idea of what is required of us in the future (which concepts to master), so we may already have an idea for an interactive project and the lesson to go along with it. As we get in the field, knowing the standards may become first nature, so we would be able to plan in a creative nature and hit the standards without planning to the standards. Our students are most important, so we must reach their needs first, and master the standards second.
