Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, December 6, 2013 2:17 PM

"This Action Brief for school librarians is... designed to provide these stakeholders — who are faced with dramatically increased expectations in the context of fewer resources — with a deeper understanding of the standards and their role in implementing the standards."

Actually Achieving Close Reading With Digital Tools

"The main point that I would add here — in a conversation about the common core, close reading, and the integration of technology — is that we, as teachers, can help our students cultivate active reading habits if we teach them how to use these tools efficiently."

Some concrete ideas to engage students in close reading, and yet another way to show students that their cell phones are more than just text messaging, fun photo taking devices!

Mark Gillingham's curator insight, February 5, 2014 1:02 PM

Teachers are also available on their smartphones and could join groups of like-mided teachers to read for pleasure or professional learning.

Josh highlights research skills, technology advice, and digital literacy as some of the benefits of working with your school library media specialist, librarian or whomever runs your library.  I love his description of librarians as the "Swiss Army knife of the school! Share this widely!

Good ways to help students look at primary sources.

Cool resources - especially like the cartoon and photo anaylsis

 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, April 30, 2014 1:37 AM

Researching gives the need to identify, organise and rate primary sources. Here are some great graphic organisers that allow students (or teachers) to do just that.

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards | Common Core | Scoop.it
Heather Wolpert-Gawron writes: "Call me bass-ackwards, but I don't design projects around the Common Core Standards. I design projects based on what I believe are engaging topics that encourage my curriculum. Having said that, I don't neglect them either. In fact, by the end of my design process, I would say that I've become rather intimate with the series of standards I'm trying to hit." (emphasis added)

Heather's posts about PBL and/or Common Core are always worth reading! This is an article that should be shared throughout your school. 

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 8, 2014 11:29 AM

Time for teachers to have a little time off and to put some planning time in on next year's projects. I like Heather's approach of finding engaging topics first, then incorporate the standards as they best work in.

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, April 22, 2014 1:38 PM

While the examples here are specific to science classes, it's important that all teachers focus on evaluation of sources.  The common "Google and grab" approach is often related to how little time students have to do research. Perhaps with longer, more thoughtful research assignments, we can give students time to research and evaluate their sources.  Maybe adding an assessment of resources to the rubric might help!

"With the rise of new trends such as a flipped classroom and whole brain teaching, there is an emphasis on getting students more actively involved in learning in the classroom. And whether or not you choose to fully embrace either of these methods, we can all agree that we want students participating as much as possible."
