Standards-Based Instructional Design

Standards-Based Design

We take each college and career readiness standard and create specific and measurable learning goals aligned to the standard. We presume competence and write the first goal at a grade level expectation.

NEW: For educators in Texas, Goalbook is fully aligned to TEKS standards!

Breadth of Content

We take each state and Common Core standard, identify its “Essential” – or “Core Purpose” – and create IEP goals, resources, and strategies. Our repository includes content for Pre-K to Grade 12 in Reading, Writing, Math, and Speech, in addition to Behavior, Social and Emotional Learning, Autism, Occupational Therapy, Alternate Academic and Life Skills, and Transition.


Multiple Levels of Support

We use strategies and supports aligned to the UDL framework to develop scaffolded instruction at mild, moderate and intense levels of support. Every standard has adapted goals so that teachers can start at the most appropriate level for students.


Instructional Strategies

Aligned instructional strategies and resources aid teachers as they plan instruction. We place strategies at the fingertips of teachers to maximize access to the standards for every student.

Research Shows Goalbook Supports Teachers

Case Study: San Francisco State University

When special education teachers write learning goals for their students, measurable details are important, but often hard to identify. According to a recent study by San Francisco State University, Goalbook helps ensure a student’s individualized plan is aligned to standards and differentiated according to the student’s unique needs.

We thought Goalbook would have a positive effect, but the results were phenomenal. Providing teachers with supports that suggest ideas for dealing with ability gaps helped our student teachers to significantly improve their ability to differentiate instruction for all students.
