Content Standards – The content standards establish general expectations for each grade level, as set by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and approved or each course at Wickliffe City School District. The standards that you select will have some natural content and skills associated with them. Content Standards can be viewed at the Ohio Department of Education website: http://www.ode.state.oh.us/
Content/Skills – What will you know and be able to do at the end of the end?
