Vocabulary Strategy: Paint Chips

Vocabulary Strategy: Paint Chips | Ccss | Scoop.it
A great strategy for building vocabulary for any student. Using paint chips, teachers provide students with a visual aid to better understand difficult vocabulary. Covers Common Core for the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words.

Love these vocabulary activites to target Greek & Latin Roots as well as Tier II vocabulary. They gave away 40 exemplar word activities. It is costly to get student accounts, but they preassessment  modifies it to fit each student's vocabulary level. Oh, if I were only rich....

With Common Core State Standards, Why Service Learning Matters Even More

With Common Core State Standards, Why Service Learning Matters Even More | Ccss | Scoop.it

By Cathryn Berger Kaye and Maureen Connolly

 

We are all familiar with the idea of service in communities and service in schools. Service learning, however, has distinctive aspects that separate this pedagogy from what we often call “community service” or “project-based learning.” With high-quality service learning, students:

Increase academic rigor through relevance and application of content and skillsParticipate in social analysis as they investigate an authentic community need, typically through action research using media, interviews, surveys, and observation More

Non-fiction Text: Using primary sources via LOC | Ccss | Scoop.it

"Recently I took a class through the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Program.  Since I often write about historical topics, I wanted to learn more about the collections at the Library of Congress (LOC).  I was amazed at their massive online collections which contain documents, maps, newspapers, images, sound recordings, sheet music and much, much more.  While searching the LOC website I found myself getting lost in a fascinating world of primary sources—a real treat for a nonfiction author."

10 Ways to Use Technology to Teach Writing - #CommonCore Anchor Standard 6

10 Ways to Use Technology to Teach Writing - #CommonCore Anchor Standard 6 | Ccss | Scoop.it

Eye On Education

by Lauren Davis

 

The Common Core’s Anchor Standard 6 for writing in grades K–12 requires students to “use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others” (emphasis mine). Here are some ideas for meeting this standard (besides the obvious use of technology—word processing).

During a two-hour visit, Chancellor Dennis Walcott, Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch, and State Education Commissioner John King sat in on an English class and watched sixth-graders identify specific words that illustrated the theme of a poem about mushrooms. In a math class, they saw five students present different solutions for the same problem, then heard the teacher explain that one strategy of problem-solving might make more sense for one student, or in one situation, than another.

Awesome Stories: Primary Source Docs for Common Core

Awesome Stories: Primary Source Docs for Common Core | Ccss | Scoop.it

AwesomeStories is a gathering place of primary-source information. Its purpose - since the site was first launched in 1999 - is to help educators and individuals find original sources, located at national archives, libraries, universities, museums, historical societies and government-created web sites.

Sources held in archives, which document so much important first-hand information, are often not searchable by popular search engines. One needs to search within those institutional sites directly, using specific search phrases not readily discernible to non-scholars. The experience can be frustrating, resulting in researchers leaving key sites without finding needed information.

AwesomeStories is about primary sources. The stories exist as a way to place original materials in context and to hold those links together in an interesting, cohesive way (thereby encouraging people to look at them). It is a totally different kind of web site in that its purpose is to place primary sources at the forefront - not the opinions of a writer. Its objective is to take the site's users to places where those primary sources are located.

New school tests called excessive | Ccss | Scoop.it

Through written guidance sent to schools last week, school administrators learned that all third- to 11th-grade students will take nine online tests - each around an hour in length - for English and math under the new testing system.

 

Five of the nine will be in English, and four will be in math. Those tests will replace the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests in the two subjects. Students now take one test in English and one in math.

"Writing is the mode on which the assessments are being built." | Ccss | Scoop.it
Writing is the mode on which the assessments are being built. The CCSS's impetus to integrate reading and writing across all subject areas drives the dismissal of classes only using textbook-driven instruction...and their mirrored counterparts in current state testing. Textbook instruction often presents one type of question and one mode of learning--the CCSS assessments want to encourage a social component to learning that is integrated with ample opportunities for students to read and write.

Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark

 

The 22 state testing consortia PARCC issued guidelines this week included more advice about access. PARCC also became an independent nonprofit.

 

District and school administrators should pay attention to the The PARCC Assessment Administration Capacity Planning Tool.  In short:

There are nine testing sessions lasting about 9 hours for middle grades, 10 hours for high school.Schools will have a maximum of 20 school days to administer the Performance Based Assessment (PBA) and  20 school days to administer the End of Year Assessment component (EOY).Broadband requirements won’t be greater than 100 kbps (which is what SETDA recommended as a minimum in Broadband Imperative)The capacity planning tool offers detailed guidance on device access based on testing plans.
