Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

Really helpful set of resources.  Be sure to check out the CCSS Curriculum Initiative.  There's lots of thinking that went on to establish this thoughtful transition document, LT statements and more.

For math teachers, conversion to new standards may be tough | GothamSchools

For math teachers, conversion to new standards may be tough | GothamSchools | Common Core Implementation | Scoop.it

Figuring out the transition is hugely tough.  It's confusing and difficult....so important to have vertical alignment.  That only comes with lots of conversation and open channels of communication.

 

Are we pushing for enough professional conversation (notice I didn't say professional development) time?  How do we express and show the need in advocating for more?

CCSSI Mathematics: a critical view-disagree at times but an impt conversation #edchat #commoncore #ccchat

That most elementary teachers were not math majors or minors in college, were not trained in mathematics education but rather in common branches, and have weak mathematics skills, often surviving by keeping one chapter ahead, and by putting the onus on the teacher, CCSSI perpetuates the endless cycle of poor mathematics preparation. Secondary teachers are math specialists at least in terms of focusing on one topic, but the percentage of math teachers who are not only sufficiently prepared to teach math, but are also able to write the curriculum, is low enough that we are shooting ourselves in the foot to send this major responsibility back to the classroom level. Teachers don't necessarily want the flexibility that CCSSI brags it is empowering teachers with. Teachers, particularly in the elementary grades, want adequate guidance. We read blogs, too; we’re not missing the buzz.

Confronting a Cliché : Stager-to-Go

Confronting a Cliché : Stager-to-Go | Common Core Implementation | Scoop.it

In classic Gary form, he pokes at widely held beliefs...this time about how much wisdom students have to share with us.  Confront is a nice word...slap you in the face is more like it.

Be sure to play the Branford Marsalis video because it will rock your thinking.  (know that there is one school inappropriate word used on it)

This makes me smile because I have heard myself using these cliches too many times and now I'll have Gary's voice in my ear everytime.

I do see that as the challenge that faces the education world. Were you able to find a spot that met all your needs?
annenamuth's comment, June 30, 2012 3:25 PM
Yes. Texas Tech University has an online PhD in rhetoric program that I am applying to. I hope it, combined with a master's in the teaching of writing, sets me apart.

WOW....I would have never thought about going that direction. How interesting! I think you'll be a natural at all of that.

The Daily Create - Daily assignments to fuel your creativity

The Daily Create - Daily assignments to fuel your creativity | Common Core Implementation | Scoop.it

 

 

Several of you expressed the wish to be more creative. There are many ways to be creative. This website only addresses a few. But maybe it's a start?

 

The Daily Creative is an exercise in the continual practice of spontaneous creativity through short exercises. Each “assignment” should take no more than 15-20 minutes. There are no registrations, no prizes, just a community of people producing art daily.

 

 

We encourage you to challenge yourself to create something new each day instead of pulling photos or videos that are already saved on your phone or computer. We’ve made the assignments short to motivate you to do this. Also think about trying several different approaches to each assignment if time permits. Often your first instinct might not always be your best work. Experimentation is key, and as always, the one hard and fast rule is MAKE ART DAMMIT!
