Module 5. Standards-Based Outlines

As a professional learning community, you should begin working toward your goal by creating a standards-based outline of your final product.

Identify

In Google Docs, create a list of standards that you will address in your product.  This does not need to be a long list, but it should include enough standards to be meaningful and be focused enough on the standards to be effective.  Some products might merit ten standards, while others might only merit one.

Outline

In the same document and below your list of standards, create an outline of your product that shows logical progression between topics. For example, if you are creating a textbook, an outline would consist of chapter titles and a brief synopsis of chapter contents.

As you create this outline, tag each major outline item with one of the identified standards listed at the top of the document to show that your content is aligned with the identified standards.
