ACTIVITY 2-2: Identify Standards

Now that you’ve identified a research question, relevant resources, and a scientist/educator partner for your inquiry-based activity, it’s time to identify standards for learning that will serve as your educational goals.

Review the following web sites to identify standards that align with the research question you have selected.

DELIVERABLE 2-2: LIST OF RELEVANT STANDARDS

We suggest you limit the number of standards to between three and five. As you review them or work on the later steps, you might identify additional standards your activity supports. Include them within your design document as a supplemental list of standards. Download the list of standards outline and fill in the standards you plan to address.

At this point you might revisit deliverable 1 from step 1. Your study of the standards might give you more insight on your target population's compelling need. Your focus is on showing that there is a genuine need for instruction in the selected standards for a particular population of learners. Briefly explain how you will use resources to help meet that need.

Citing the source of the standard/s gives your documentation credibility. Place the citation within the body of your documentation and place actual references within a reference section. You add to the reference section as you progress through the Virtual Design Center.

EXAMPLES
Review the following examples of deliverable 2-2. The first is a NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future project prepared for you. Examples 2-4 are deliverables submitted by previous Virtual Design Center participants.

Return to step 2 for debriefing.
