One part of unpacking standards is clarifying what it is we want students to learn. It is not enough to simply look at nouns and verbs in curricular statements; we’ve got to go beyond that and figure out the specific content that students must learn.
One way to do this is to make a content card using Frayer’s Model for vocabulary development. The idea of using the model is to figure out the key content students should learn for a standard. The visual below is a content card that I finished today.

To get to the information for the card, I reviewed the following for a standard from the Commonwealth of Virginia: Standards of Learning for Mathematics, Curriculum Framework, Enhanced Scope and Sequence, and Released Assessments.
I enjoy working with these and I’ll continue to post any that I do.
