Peer assessment can be as effective as any done by an adult or teacher, and allows for deeper differentiation in the learning process for our students.

States Examine Cost, Quality of Common Core Assessments

States Examine Cost, Quality of Common Core Assessments | Common core standards education | Scoop.it

"Beginning in March, more than four million students will serve as guinea pigs for the English and math tests for the Common Core.

 

So far, none of the 45 states that adopted the English and math standards has dropped them (Minnesota adopted only the English standards). But several states have backed off from using the tests created by the two multi-state testing groups or ended their participation in the collaborations.

 

In December, Kansas withdrew from the Smarter Balanced coalition, opting instead to commission tests from the University of Kansas. Earlier this month, Alaska also announced it would withdraw from Smarter Balanced and instead use tests from the University of Kansas. In September, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, ordered the state’s education department to withdraw from PARCC and consider other test options. Utah withdrew from Smarter Balanced in 2012. Georgia and Oklahoma withdrew from PARCC last summer. Alabama, which had been a member of both Smarter Balanced and PARCC, withdrew from both groups; Pennsylvania has said it will use its own tests."

4 Excellent Visuals Explaining Close Reading for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

4 Excellent Visuals Explaining Close Reading for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Common core standards education | Scoop.it

"Reading well requires much more than just decoding textual input, it is rather a process of making meaning of text using a wide range of critical and intellectual skills and drawing on different cues . Close reading is one example of a theory that explicates the intricacies surrounding effective reading. In close reading, readers need to consider a set of criteria for a better comprehension of the text. Some of the these criteria include: Language, Narrative, Syntax, and Context."

Close Reading: Dissecting The Text

Close Reading: Dissecting The Text | Common core standards education | Scoop.it

A close reading of text is a rereading of a small slice of a story (or something that is short to begin with, like a poem or an essay)—perhaps rereading it many times.Then, through careful inspection of words, sentences, paragraphs, and the way they work as parts and together as a whole, the teacher leads the students to discern the author’s meaning. Students are guided to provide “textual evidence” that the author’s meaning is what it is. They can’t guess, based only their prior knowledge and a cursory look at the words on the page, what the author intends.  This means, practically, that a Cliff Note’s acquaintanceship with the text won’t cut it.

Keep in mind Patricia Kain's (Harvard) three steps for close reading:

  1. “Read with  a pencil in hand, and annotate the text.
  2. Look for patterns in the things you’ve noticed about the text—repetitions, contradictions, similarities.
  3. Ask questions about the patterns you’ve noticed—especially how and why.” (Kain, P.How to Do a Close Reading, Harvard University, 1998.

20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts

20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts | Common core standards education | Scoop.it

"The Common Core Standards represent a shift in the traditional instruction of English-Language Arts in the average American public school K-12 classroom. While there are several differences in the new standards, one of the most interesting (in addition to the expectation of technology integration) is the trend from literary to non-fiction texts."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 1, 2013 7:05 PM

This could be used as a great anchor chart for students to see when when reading text and preparing to respond to the text. Although the title says 20 questions I count 21 questions on this visual, questions that are require critical thinking skills, questions that may be used with a variety of texts (as required by Common Core).

The questions are in three categories (information below quoted from the article):

* Within the text - summaries, sequence of events, conflict/resolution, etc

* Beyond the text - Inferencing, implicit ideas, evaluation, etc.

* About the text - Author purpose, author style, characterization, etc.

The post also relates the areas to Bloom's Taxonomy. You might also look at the question relative to Depth of Knowledge.

Sarah McElrath's comment, April 3, 2013 12:17 PM
Whether you have students go through and highlight isn't as important as the idea of going through a text multiple times and looking for different things. Some of the steps looked at the word choice, but some of the steps looked for themes and connections. All of that plays a part in what makes a text work--or not. Plus, note the last step which says, "now you are ready to discuss the text." So I think students and teachers can still get to the "contrast of darkness and spirit" or any other point that seems important. And would teachers do this on all texts? No, probably not. But if you started by having students practice going through and looking for different things, eventually they may gain the mindset that deep reading includes multiple readings, looking at different aspects of that text. And for younger students -- concrete is good. Start with the concrete and move to the higher level thinking.

A good model for one way of doing close reading, though some kids may get "highlighter happy".

A really user-friendly guide to use in our classes. We can use short, interesting and meaningful texts for that purpose.
