The MASL Standards Task Force worked through the 22-23 school year to develop instructional standards, gather feedback from MASL members, and publish a draft standards document that includes standards, alignment, glossary and additional supports.  The draft standards include Learner Expectations and Competencies at PK, K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-10, and 11-12 grade bands.  They are organized by the Big Ideas of Reading Engagement, Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and Innovation.  The task force has presented sessions at Spring Conference 2023 and Summer PD and will continue to provide professional development to support implementation at Fall PD and by request at region meetings or other events.  The task force represented all regions and grade levels throughout the scope of their work to create new instructional standards. DESE adoption is being pursued and they will continue to be provided as draft standards as we work through that process.
