Target Practice on the Common Core Range

Target Practice on the Common Core Range | Common Core and Teacher Leadership | Scoop.it

Instructional design is aimed at “intentional” learning as opposed to “incidental” learning. This implies that target goals and desired learning outcomes guide the design and selection of learning activities. Meaningful learning outcomes are a starting and ending point…because it is against accomplishment of the objectives that the effectiveness of the design is measured. (Gagne, R. M., Wager, W.W., Golas, K.C., Keller, J. M., 2005).


I am convinced that the Common Core Standards can ladder up student achievement and school success in the most struggling of districts


The Instructional Goals are the focus of lesson design.


...are not so different from the design of two approaches I have used in the past:

The Common Core Standards require careful reading by school staff

The Common Core Standards require careful reading by school staff | Common Core and Teacher Leadership | Scoop.it
We recommend that schools set the expectation and schedule the time for staff to read and discuss the Standards, beginning with the “front matter,” not the grade-level Standards. We also recommend that staff reading and discussion be guided by an essential question: What are the new distinctions in these Standards and what do they mean for our practice? Since the Standards are complex texts and demand a “close” reading, we recommend that staff carefully examine the table of contents and the organizational structure; the headers (e.g., Design Considerations; What is Not Covered, etc.), the components (e.g., Anchor Standards and Foundational Skills for ELA; Standards for Mathematical Practice), and the Appendices (ELA).

What does it mean that literacy crosses all subjects? In short, this means that because we don’t read novels the same way we read science labs or the same way we read histories, all of us get to teach the different faces of literacy.
