Wow! Don't know how to respond when teachers say "It's not MY job" regarding literacy skills? Need a professional, well thought out answer to why taking higher levels of math in high school helps achievement in general? It's in here-- and so is everything else you wanted to know about Common Core.

Rufus Hannah's curator insight, October 5, 2013 6:29 PM

We are piloting Common Core resources with elementary students at my school. We are realizing the challenges of working without textbooks - how much teachers need to know about lesson design along with assessment for and of learning.

Great lesson on teaching Common Core Math

David Timbs's curator insight, March 12, 2013 10:18 PM

Really good video!

Todd Parker's curator insight, December 19, 2013 2:22 PM

I really like this website in general.  It takes good teaching skills and models them for us in a real classroom.  They have real teachers in real classes and then there is commentary about what is going on.  There is a real thrust towards Common Core here and how to teacg the problem solving and perseverance skills that are so necessary in Common Core.  In math, you see the use of all kinds of manipulatives that you might not think of on your own.  Sometimes the only thing that students need to become engaged or to get over the hump is having something to move around or see other than numbers on paper.  This website is a goldmine for good ideas.
