Standards, Curriculum, and
Formative Assessment
Standards
• Scope: the breadth and depth of content
to be covered
Curriculum
• Sequence: the order in which content is
presented
Formative
Assessment
• Provides activities to facilitate critical
areas of development and learning that
can be embedded in classroom routines

Standards, Curriculum, and
Formative Assessment
Standards
Curriculum
• A process used by teachers and children

Stakeholder Input
Identifying professional development needs for
schools systems and the early intervention
program
– Stakeholder input helped to identify priorities for
training and resources needed to implement into
teacher/practitioner practices
17
Training Content Priorities
• Embed the Foundations and NC Professional
Teaching Standards into existing professional
development initiatives
• Focus on “instructional practices”
• Cross-walk to Common Core to communicate
alignment with K-12
