Great tool for demonstrating what the major work is for any given grade level!

This article is different that most of the articles I focus on. And thats why I thought it was important to include. When I first saw it my thougths were that it wouldnt fit in to what I wanted to research about. But that I realized that that what I want to write about is math and how to teach it. This article shows exactly that. Whether or not I like common core or standards they are still a critical part of teaching because it relates to the subject: math. As a teacher it is my goal and responsibility to help my students learn what I am presenting. So thinking about my actual subject matter is an important part. This allowed me to think about what the students are expected to learn (whether or not I approve) and allows me to think what is the best way of going about it. Because in math there are certain things that students will need to focus on in order to achieve the grades and levels they need. Math necessarily isnt equal. Certain times concentrating on certain aspects can in fact increase learning. Especially in relation to testing and moving on to other course.certain material will be more relevant than others. I expect that if I ever become a teacher this will be something that would be a great resource to me in my journey to be a successful math teacher.

I am a longtime fan of Kylene Beers and Bob Probst. This blog gives a quick rundown of the basic tenets of their highly popular book, Notice and Note and shares an instructional activity. You'll want to go out and buy the book!

Close reading using Six Signposts! Great strategy!!

Linda Burke Dooling's curator insight, January 26, 2014 4:27 PM

Students need to develop the skills to notice/note what is important -- in literature and in non-fiction -- by themselves. This is a tool that can help learn how to do this and also to practice doing it.

A number of good points made in this blog. Sentence frames are great for strugglers, so that is not at the top of my list, so be sure and keep reading!!

Lucas Arnestad's curator insight, January 6, 2014 8:49 PM

Teaching academic language is very important in all grades. By teaching kids these vocabulary words it helps them solve higher level problems by understanding every part of the problem. Eventually with consistent learning of new vocabulary it makes the student have better grades, get into a better college, and then get a great job. This article introduces 8 strategies of teaching academic language. If I were a teacher I would dynamically introduce academic vocabulary. It's having your students read authentic context with vocabulary words in the text. Repeated encounters with a word can help students internalize the definition. When I was younger, unlike some kids, I didn't want to read very much. So having every student in your class read the vocabulary filled test insures that every student has a chance to learn.
