States’ Progress and Challenges in Implementing Common Core State Standards, by Nancy Kober, Diane Stark Rentner at the Center on Education Policy

States’ Progress and Challenges in Implementing Common Core State Standards, a report by by Nancy Kober, Diane Stark Rentner at the Center on Education Policy in Washington, DC, USA

Lynnette Van Dyke's insight:

According to this report, “In the fall of 2010, the Center on Education Policy surveyed state officials about their efforts to adopt and implement the Common Core State Standards in reading and math. The survey found that states that have adopted the standards have plans for changing policies and programs, such as developing or adopting new assessments, modifying curriculum materials, and offering professional development for teachers, to ensure that the standards are fully implemented at the classroom level.”

CCSSO developed this list of tools and resources to point states to promising practices and tools to support Common Core State Standards implementation. This document primarily lists resources developed by CCSSO and the lead writers of the standards and is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all resources available.

Seven Must-Read Books About Education: 2015 List

Seven Must-Read Books About Education: 2015 List | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Two thousand and fourteen was a great year for books. I read all the books on last year’s list, “Seven Must-read books about education for 2014” and wrote reviews for each. The books were thought-provoking, refreshing, well worth the investment of my reading time. I’ve complied a selection of titles for 2015 and share the top seven related to education. Collectively the books provide unique and broad perspectives on education. Three titles fall outside the education discipline though each provides insight worth exploring. The list is based upon reviews of several published lists featuring best books overall and best-selling education books of 2014 by The New York Times, NPR, The Chronicle of Higher Ed etc. as well as readers comments on GoodReads and Amazon. Like last year, I’m aiming for thought-provoking reads, and quality over quantity.

This looks like a great tool with lots of prompts to inspire student writing activities and a platform to enable them to share and interact around what they write.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 16, 8:26 PM

This writing and sharing tool has a stack of writing prompts, visuals and ideas for writing. Students can publish their work and interact with the works of other students.

Want to help students improve their work? Mark them on their progress | college and career ready | Scoop.it
By giving students a mark that reflects personal development – rather than a comparison with peers – universities can avoid demotivating those who have not performed highly
