Close reading has  become the buzz! Some good, practical tips here with examples. And remember, text is a broad term not limited to print. I'm a text, you're at text. People are reading our actions as well as our words.

wwwatanabe: Close Read Complex Text, and Annotate with Diigo--Part 3 | Common Core Oklahoma | Scoop.it
Connie Wise's insight:

Close reading is a strategy for reading complex text. In Part 1, the focus is how to do a close reading. The focus in Part 2 is how to annotate with iPads. The focal points of this post are the teacher steps in close reading; how to create text dependent questions for informational text in 6th-12th grades; annotating in Diigo; and creating writing activities to go with close reading.

How Tech Directors Must Really Prepare for Common Core -- THE Journal

How Tech Directors Must Really Prepare for Common Core -- THE Journal | Common Core Oklahoma | Scoop.it
Readiness for the new standards is about more than devices and networks.
Connie Wise's insight:

". . . tech directors right now are focused only on the "bugs" in the trees that typically supply their lifeblood--especially the devices and networks needed to get ready for the new assessments--and may not be looking at other vital aspects of implementing the new standards and their evaluation."

Georgia, Oklahoma say Common Core tests are too costly and decide not to adopt them

Two states say they will write their own tests, others may follow suit.
Connie Wise's insight:

"PARCC said it would cost states $29.50 a student for both math and reading tests."

"The PARCC tests are more expensive than the multiple-choice “bubble tests” widely used today because they are designed to measure critical thinking skills, requiring students to write analytical essays and demonstrate their understanding of mathematical concepts. The test must be graded by hand and not by computers, adding to the cost, Chester said.

And test questions will be made public after the tests are administered, allowing students to learn from their wrong answers but requiring new questions for the next year."
