Don't fear Common Core

Don't fear Common Core | Common Cores, Peels, Seeds | Scoop.it

I used to be afraid of the Common Core, a national effort to align public school curriculum goals across state lines and provide better tools for measuring what students are learning. I feared the new standards would lead to my students failing and that I would be scapegoated for those failures. But after two years of working with the Common Core in my Boston classroom, I'm a convert.

35 Digital Tools To Create Simple Quizzes And Collect Feedback From Students

35 Digital Tools To Create Simple Quizzes And Collect Feedback From Students | Common Cores, Peels, Seeds | Scoop.it
“ 35 Digital Tools To Create Simple Quizzes And Collect Feedback From Students ”If there is one thing teachers lack, it’s time. And while using technology to automate learning has been frowned upon by many, using it to automate time-consuming processes or aggregate data automatically is among the many seamless fits technology can make into any classroom. Which is where the following collections of apps and tools comes in. These sites, tools, and apps can save teachers time by allowing them to create simple quizzes that can be taken asynchronously, and make polls and forms to collect feedback from students (content-based or otherwise).

McTighe weighs in on creating assessments for CCSS applying backward design.

Jennifer Cimini's curator insight, January 25, 10:22 AM

McTighe emphasized that through its detailed standards, the aim of Common Core—as well as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)—is autonomous transfer, or student comprehension and understanding of concepts, rather than facts.
