A White Paper on the Common Core Standards

A White Paper on the Common Core Standards | Childhood literacy | Scoop.it

"Jay McTighe and I have written a white paper on implementation of the Common Core Standards entitled From Common Core Standards to Curriculum: Five Big Ideas. In it we propose a strategy for ensuring that the Common Core Standards are appropriately addressed in curriculum and assessment design locally. We also highlight common misconceptions about what the Standards do and do not demand of educators locally."

The paper has five big ideas (quoted below):

#1 - The Common Core Standards have new emphases and require a careful reading.

#2 -  Standards are not curriculum.

#3 - Standards need to be "unpacked."

#4 - A coherent curriculum is mapped backwards from desired performances.

#5 - The standards come to life through the assessments.

A short excerpt is also available if you click through.

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools | Childhood literacy | Scoop.it

By Adam Coccari

 

I am a 4th and 6th grade teacher that has been utilizing games in my lessons and tutoring sessions for a few years now. If I had suggested just five years ago that video games could play a major part in classroom education, the majority of teachers and school administrators would have laughed at me. Now, there seems to be somewhat of a sea change happening in this field. Educators are starting to believe what many researchers and advocates have long known: Video games can be excellent teaching tools and an effective way for students to learn.
