5 presentation tools that enable better collaboration

5 presentation tools that enable better collaboration | Common Cores, Peels, Seeds | Scoop.it
With group presentations, it is always difficult to find a way to collaborate effectively on a presentation. Sending a PowerPoint over e-mail repeatedly can be a hassle, because no one will have the same draft at the same time. With a collaborative presentation, it’s important to edit in real-time in a space that works for everyone. To help with that, we have found...

Core2Class: What's Your Library Media Specialist Doing for Dinner Tonight? | Common Cores, Peels, Seeds | Scoop.it

One of the aspects of the Common Core ELA that I find to be most challenging is the ability to plan units that bring together featured and supporting texts.  A featured text is the text(s) that all students in the class read regardless of reading level.  This text(s) is the heart and soul of the unit and should frame the culminating assessment.  Supporting texts, on the other hand, help students practice certain skills, acquire helpful background knowledge, research a topic or, most importantly, forge connections with the ideas and elements found in the featured texts.  These texts may be leveled and could vary depending on the student or situation.

The "secret weapon" in planning Common Core units.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, September 25, 2013 10:32 AM

Pairing of text is essential to success not only on assessments, but in life. Many of the connections we bring to our daily living and professional success come from connecting either two texts or a text to a situation. Truth is, finding texts that work for instructional pairing is that...WORK!
