The curriculum, standards and assessments adopted by the Lake Washington School shape the learning experience for students at Audubon.
Power Standards help teachers focus and prioritize what is most important for students to know and be able to do in the time available for teaching and learning. Of the state Grade Level Equivalents (GLEs), Power Standards are the ones that best represent the key skills, concepts and processes mastered at a given grade level. Power Standards create the framework for teaching and learning.
- The Framework
- The Teaching and Learning Framework creates a student-centered learning environment that allows students a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
- Each year committees of teachers who are subject matter experts review standards, teaching practices and materials to teach with. Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date, research based and appropriate materials for children.
- Grade Level Expectations
- Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) provide detail about what students should know and be able to do by grade level. GLEs are aligned from kindergarten through grade 10 – so that parents, students and educators can see how skills and knowledge build from year to year.
