Mission Statement from Common Core Website:
"The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy." http://www.corestandards.org/

From Standards to Units and Lessons: Using the Tri-State Rubric

From Standards to Units and Lessons: Using the Tri-State Rubric | Common core | Scoop.it

Districts are moving at different speeds with adoption of the standards, but many are now seriously considering how to look through their lessons and align, revise or redesign them either for the first time or for the second or third time to the Common Core State Standards. One of the many great tools that are available to teachers is the tri-state rubric jointly developed by Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts.

 

The rubric can be used in a variety of ways and for different purposes. Access this resource to view the rubrics for Math and ELA. A series of videos on the development, design and use of the rubric is also provided.

What is the Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP)?

 

The Mathematics Assessment Program (MAP) aims to bring to life the Common Core State Standards (CCSSM) in a way that will help teachers and their students turn their aspirations for achieving them into classroom realities. MAP is a collaboration between the University of California, Berkeley and the Shell Center team at the University of Nottingham, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The team works with the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative and school systems across the US and UK to develop improved assessment

Using ReadWriteThink to Address Common Core

Using ReadWriteThink to Address Common Core | Common core | Scoop.it

We recently hosted a session at the IRA Annual Conference in San Antonio called "Using ReadWriteThink.org to Address CCSS and Engage Adolescent Learners."

The first part of the session was presented by Scott Filkins and focused on how to engage adolescent readers while keeping in mind the learning expectations set forth in the Common Core State Standards.

The second part was presented by Laurie Henry examining the SEARCH strategy to help students build and present an argument.
