Educational Leadership:Common Core: Now What?:Closing in on Close Reading | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

Much of the available information about close reading centers on secondary schools... But close reading can't wait until 7th grade or junior year in high school. It needs to find its niche in kindergarten and the years just beyond if we mean to build the habits of mind that will lead all students to deep understanding of text.

Kids Teaching Kids. Eric Marcos and the Mathtrain.TV story - YouTube

Discover digital tools for learning: http://bit.ly/11qVCLu We learn best from our peers.our educational system still depends on us learning from people 20-50 years our senior. Not a bad idea, when people older than us know the subject really well. But, what if students can teach other students? Or even better, what if the students can learn in the process of teaching? Eric Marcos has students show up every day after class (for no extra credit!) to make math videos for their fellow students and the rest of the world. See why and how.

Teachers Pay Teachers—an “open marketplace” where teacher entrepreneurs buy, sell and share the resources they have createdIllustrative Mathematics—a site where teachers collaborate and review math resources./li>Shell Center for Mathematical Education—a site that provides formative assessment lessons used in the Math Design CollaborativeInside Mathematics—offers a “problem of the month” designed to engage entire schools in solving challenging tasksMathalicious—a site with a variety of creative, real-world lessons, such as how the speed of video game consoles has changed over time“Book Love: Developing Depth, Stamina, and Passion in Adolescent Readers” by Penny Kittle“Pathways to the Common Core: Accelerating Achievement” a book by Lucy Calkins, Mary Ehrenworth, and Christopher Lehman“The Uncommon Core: Where the Authors of the Standards Go Wrong About Instruction—and How You Can Get It Right” a book by Michael W.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 7, 1:39 PM
  1. No matter the question, an online resource called TuvaLabs is helping students use data to find the answer.
  2. Three Act Math, a set of tasks by Stanford University math education professor Dan Meyer, Stidham’s students learned about quadratic relationships by making predictions about basketball. The students used multiple strategies to understand the meaning of graphs. “They were not just learning and problem solving; they were learning through problem solving,” she says.
  3. Iowa Teacher of the Year Jane Schmidt, from the Maquoketa Community School District, and other mentors in her region have been training teachers on the “gradual release of responsibility” framework, as it is presented in “Better Learning Through Structured Teaching,” by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey.

Coaching Toward the Common Core State Standards | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

CCSS creates an opportunity for everyone in the education system to reflect on and make changes in many traditional practices and approaches. This is promising--there's a whole lot that needs to change in order for kids to get what they need, but it's also very scary.

"These new (#CommonCore) tests look different than what we’re used to." | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

These new tests look different than what we’re used to, and have tremendous potential to address many of the biggest problems with standardized tests. It’s critical that we stay focused on the long game here, because in the short-term, implementation is going to get messy.
