Common Core Big Idea 4: Map Backward From Intended Results

Common Core Big Idea 4: Map Backward From Intended Results | Common Core Reading | Scoop.it

"A curriculum envisioned and enacted as a set of maps of content and skill coverage will simply not, by itself, develop a student’s increasingly autonomous capacity to use learned content effectively to address complex tasks and problems."

 

"Our point here is straightforward: if a curriculum simply marches through lists of content knowledge and skills without attending to the concomitant goal of cultivating independent performance, high-schoolers will remain as dependent on teacher directions and step-by-step guidance as fourth graders currently are. The resulting graduates will be unprepared for the demands of college and the workplace."

25 more states draft definition of college readiness

25 more states draft definition of college readiness | Common Core Reading | Scoop.it

By Catherine Gewertz

 

Twenty-five states have taken a big step toward designing a shared assessment: They've drafted an initial definition of what college readiness means, and descriptions of the skills and knowledge students must demonstrate at each step of the way toward that goal.

 

Released today, the college-readiness definition and the descriptors of achievement on each level of the test are part of the work of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, one of two federally funded groups of states that are designing assessment systems for the Common Core State Standards.

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About - Edudemic | Common Core Reading | Scoop.it

"Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved.

 

Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers."

Favorite Apps of K12 Educators and Students - 2012 | Common Core Reading | Scoop.it

"Please take the following survey and share your thoughts, then pass the link on to your colleagues and friends. I'm writing a new column for the Appealing Apps for Educators series in Appolicious and I'd love to get gather the opinions of educators and students on their favorite apps that they've used this year.

 

These apps do not have to be new to the education market this year. Vote for one app per category only; apps can be listed in multiple categories. You also are not required to submit an app in every category. K12 classes may want to consider discussing the following categories, and making one group entry.

 

NOTE: This is not a survey for app developers to promote their own work. Do not take this survey if you are not a K12 student, a K12 class or educator."

Fiction vs. nonfiction | Jay Mathews | Common Core Reading | Scoop.it

Everyone hopes new standards will get students out of a reading slump. But the demand for more nonfiction reading is being resisted by English teachers.

 

Bauerlein and Stotsky report


...doesn’t see why English classes have to carry the nonfiction weight. Social studies and science courses can do that. The real battle, he says, will be in the elementary schools, where lesson plans have failed to provide the vocabulary, background knowledge and context that make good readers."
