All of the content in Goalbook Toolkit is aligned to state standards and aligned to research-based frameworks like Universal Design for Learning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Educators can customize instructional objectives and find classroom-ready resources that support students.
Different students learn in different ways - to supplement our goals, we provide instructional suggestions aligned to Universal Design for Learning to help you provide multiple pathways to success and reduce potential barriers to learning.
Every strategy is aligned to the UDL framework and clearly described with concrete examples and suggested applications which help you become a more versatile educator.
We publish UDL strategies based on practices we see used by master educators.
All of our strategies are organized according to the UDL Guidelines so you can quickly find a strategy related to content representation, student expression, or engagement.
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.
