Blank Unpacking NCAS Template
Conditions of Use:

Rating

The purpose of this template is to allow the user to unpack the National Core Arts Standards into task-specific or task-neutral learning targets that then can be used during instruction and/or within an assessment tool like a rubric.

The Unpacking Process:
1. Take a look at the performance standard* and pull out the nouns, or what students need to know.
2. Next pull out what students need to be able to do (the verbs).
3. Write learning targets or I can statements. When writing ask yourself, “What does this look like in student work?”

*Grade level Performance Standards or Indicators will need to be added to the template prior to the first step. This is a blank template.
