As you work in the Alice Hagar Curriculum
Resources Center, you’ll want to align your
lessons and assessments with EDUCATIONAL
There are multiple sets of standards, some
that address what students should know and be
able to do and others that address what
teachers should be able to do. Below are those
that will be most important to English
language arts and reading teachers.
Academic Standards in Wisconsin- Students
||Academic standards specify
what students in grades 4, 8, and 12 should
know and be able to do, what they might be
asked to do to give evidence of standards, and
how well they must perform. They include
content, performance, and proficiency
standards. Content standards refer to what
students should know and be able to do.
Performance standards tell how students will
show that they are meeting a standard.
Proficiency standards indicate how well
students must perform. Core areas include
English language arts, mathematics, science
and social studies.
Wisconsin Educator Standards - Teachers
||To receive a license to teach
in Wisconsin, an applicant shall complete an
approved program and demonstrate proficient
performance in all of the 10 Wisconsin
National Content Standards- Teachers
||In addition to Educator
standards, graduates from UW-Lacrosse programs
should demonstrate understanding of the
content standards in their discipline. These
standards are closely aligned to the educator
standards but include a specific focus on the
Standards for the English Language Arts.
