Standards Paper 2

Introduction

Creekside Elementary School’s standards are built through time, intellect, and concern

for the students in all grade levels. Creekside standards are a combination of the Virginia

Standards of Learning, Bennett Standards, Hawaii Content and Performance Standards,

standards from the National Council for Teachers of English, National Council of Teachers of

Mathematics, National Science Teachers Association, and the National Council for the Social

Studies. By providing the students with a set curriculum for learning, students will achieve the

most updated knowledge of the core subjects, English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

Virginia Standards of Learning

The Virginia Department of Education’s mission is to teach students from Kindergarten

through twelfth grade the tools needed to be positive and active members in their community.

With the help of staff, faculty, parents, and business leaders, students will be given the materials

needed to be successful. The Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools (SOLs) involves

standards in the four core content areas: English, Math, Science and Social Science. The

Standards of Learning also contains Foreign Language, Fine Arts, Health and Physical

Education, and Driver Education.

Bennett

William J. Bennett was born July 31, 1943. He was influential in the conservative

movement. He was Secretary of Education in the Reagan Administration. He later served as

drug czar and has written numerous books. He was also the chairman of the National

Endowment for the Humanities.

Hawaii Content and Performance Standards

The Hawaii State Legislature created HCPS in 1991. The Hawaii Department of

Education makes this statement in The Introduction, Vision, & Goals website: “.…Our standards

set the course, while students, families, and community fill the sails with expectation as we

voyage with the treasure of bright, young minds ready to lead the way to the future”

(http://doe.k12.hi.us/about/intro_vision.htm). The Hawaii standards have evolved three times.

The Hawaii State Legislature created in 1991 was the first and most general of the three. In

2004, through refinement, the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards (HCPS II) were

created. It cared about content areas as well as performance areas. HCPS II focuses both on the

academics and the character qualities in each student. Responsibility, understanding how to

work together, having the ability to think critically, problem solving, making quality products,

communicating effectively, and having the ability to use technology efficiently and ethically is

essential to the Standards-Based Curriculum HCPS II. The downfall to HCPS II; however, is

that though they only had 139 standards, there were 3,960 benchmarks and grade level

performance indicators. Teachers felt that there was still too much to implement in the

classroom. HCPSIII; therefore, the resource used in the standards charts, was made in 2006-07

to use only the essential standards, benchmarks, and performance indicators for teachers to apply

in their classrooms.

National Council for Teachers of English

The National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) consists of teachers that are

dedicated towards awards, publications, educational issues, policies and all that is included in

Language Arts. Founded in 1911, teachers have been using this organization to gain resources

and knowledge from other professionals in the field. Not only is this council full of knowledge
Standards Paper 4

from colleagues but also contains a large access to a variety of journals, websites, books, credit

cards, and insurance that are offered through NCTE. NCTE is dedicated toward furthering the

education of students, which is why they are dedicated in the professional development of

teachers. Through conventions and online resources, teachers are able to stay on top of today’s

expanding academic world.

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is a large organization

consisting of affiliate members, individual, and student memberships. By becoming a member

of NCTM, one earns subscriptions to school journals, exclusive online resources, conferences,

publications, workshops, and access to many resources. NCTM believes that students should be

thoroughly prepared for the career paths that they make; therefore, implementing a set of

standards in which all students, pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, will accomplish.

National Science Teachers Association

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) desires “…to promote excellence and

innovation in science teaching and learning for all,” which reflects their guiding principles. They

embrace diversity and promote a proactive attitude of science throughout society. Founded in

1944, it is the largest organization in the world to promoting excellence and innovation in

science teaching and learning.

National Council for the Social Studies

The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) was founded in 1921 with the vision

to assist educators in conveying the “fields of study” relating to social studies. NCSS broke up

social studies into ten areas including: culture: time, continuity, and change; people, places, and

environments; individual development and identity; individuals, groups, and institutions; power,
Standards Paper 5

authority, and governance; production, distribution, and consumption; science, technology, and

society; global connections; and civic ideals and practices. By applying standards to these core

areas, NCSS is providing key knowledge towards making each student a valuable part of society.
