When evaluating instructional materials for adoption in BSD K-12 Behavioral Health and Wellness, there are three working criteria. We encourage you to review these criteria and to share your ideas and perspectives on the featured instructional materials.
There are three central operating criteria that were used for evaluating instructional materials for Behavioral Health and Wellness:
Behavioral Health and Wellness Best Practices
Considerations from BSD Teacher-Leaders
Considerations from BSD Pilot Teachers
Following your review of these criteria, we invite you to access the different instructional materials using the provided log-in information, and then to share your feedback on the materials in the linked Google Form.
For the purpose of this community review, we will only be using standards 2 through 7 from BSD Policy IIA-AR - Instructional Resources/Instructional Materials. These standards are below.
BSD Policy IIA-AR - Instructional Resources/Instructional Materials Standards 2-7:
Standard 2: Materials shall meet high standards of quality in: factual content, educational significance, readability, artistic quality and/or literary style presentation, physical format and technical quality.
Standard 3: Materials shall be appropriate for the ability level, learning styles, emotional and social development of the students for whom the materials are selected.
Standard 4: Materials shall promote growth in factual knowledge and critical thinking.
Standard 5: Materials shall stimulate growth in the areas of literary appreciation, social and aesthetic values and ethical standards.
Standard 6: Selected materials shall support a balanced approach to controversial issues that will include representation of various points of view even when those opinions represented are controversial. The inclusion of controversial materials does not imply endorsement of the ideas by district personnel.
Standard 7: Materials shall represent the contribution of all people regardless of age; gender; belief system (e.g., religious, spiritual, political, social); racial, ethnic and cultural origin; socio-economic background, diverse ability or disability.
You will also have an opportunity to share open-ended feedback on the materials.
