As a teacher, it is helpful to know the standards above and below your grade level. As a resource teacher, it is IMPERATIVE that you know the standards for the whole school. If you are unsure of which grade level standard your students are able to demonstrate with proficiency, just slide across the list until you find the standard that matches. Sort, filter, and utilize all functionality of excel.
