Courageous learning is key for engaging professionals in opening their doors to collaborate at the edge of new learning.  Be a learner.  Inspire educators across your organization to not have all the answers, but instead ask, try and learn from what isn't working to realize new possibilities.

Looks like a great class.  They will be including in the course actual discourse samples from students' own classes – great concept for an online course.  I've enrolled!

Collaborate and connect in this online course. Given the line up of instructors, I trust this will be good!

I love the way this amplifies the concept of "student to student discourse" as a major source of learning.  Teaching students how to have constructive conversations is a key to generative learning.

Context matters.  High-expectations and rigorous content lessons are key to building academic language for ELs, and all struggling learners. Watering down doesn't help. Instead, build in students the capacity to embrace complexity and challenge.

Writing: Student Samples

Writing: Student Samples | Common Core | Scoop.it

The Common Core Standards emphasize the integration of content understanding and writing. In Common demonstrates this, using K-12 samples from all three types of Common Core writing: argument/opinion writing, informative/explanatory writing, and narrative writing.

The Speaking and Listening Standards are the fuel that give the ELA Common Core standards their oomph.  In fact, without the SL standards, our kids will NEVER be able to master the full standards.  Why?

The papers on this site are outstanding for leading professional learning discussions about language, literacy and Common Core achievement for ELs.  Important message:  it is important to engage ALL learners in rigorous critical-thinking tasks even before they have perfect language. We learn academic language by using academic language. Don't exclude ELs from what they most need to teach a watered-down curriculum.  Scaffold, model and guide so they excel with academic challenges!

Higher standards, new curricula and changes in teaching are only three parts of what could make the “Common Core” a success, or a disaster.

I've been following the assessment strand in common core implementation efforts. From what I've seen so far, the treatment of listening and speaking is minimal.  As we know, it's difficult to create valid and reliable measures of oral skills...
