When we "unpack the standards" we start with the summative assessment (ours are called Performance Based Assessments, which are based on Common Core Standards) and brainstorm all the skills the students will need in order to be successful on that assessment. We do this with students, too. For example, if the PBA is to write an informational essay, students would brainstorm what they would need to know in order to write the informational essay.
