Analyzing Sources in Science

Analyzing Sources in Science | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

Mary Clark's curator insight, April 22, 1:38 PM

While the examples here are specific to science classes, it's important that all teachers focus on evaluation of sources.  The common "Google and grab" approach is often related to how little time students have to do research. Perhaps with longer, more thoughtful research assignments, we can give students time to research and evaluate their sources.  Maybe adding an assessment of resources to the rubric might help!

Doing Math vs.Thinking Mathematically: What's the Difference?

Doing Math vs.Thinking Mathematically: What's the Difference? | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

Thinking mathematically is an art - specifically, as Lockhart (2002) states, "the art of explanation.  It's about actively developing deeper knowledge, understanding, and awareness of mathematical concepts, practices, and processes - more specifically,analyzing how, evaluating why, and creating new ways of thinking about and using mathematics.
