It would be easier to remember fewer items. Charles Duhigg's book (2012) The Power of Habit was a NYT best seller.Now, how do we create these good habits.

We all are permanent students, so this article is not only relevant for a classroom.

MARLOW, Okla. - The battle over Common Core in Oklahoma ended last week when Governor Fallin signed a bill that repealed the math and English academic standards. But is the war over? Some districts are saying they've invested too much into Common Core and are going to stick with it because it works.

Chryste's curator insight, June 1, 1:41 AM

This rubric gives teachers and coaches an honest way to analyze the mathematics experiences students have in the classroom. It has the potential to be a game changer for kids by giving all of them access to teachers who spend instructional time taking actions that matter for student learning.

Studies Highlight Complexities of Using Value-Added Measures

Studies Highlight Complexities of Using Value-Added Measures | Common Core State Standards in Education | Scoop.it
As a number of states begin evaluating teachers' effectiveness based on changes in their students' test scores, academic research is raising more questions about such "value-added" models.
Jay Roth's insight:

Studies the bring VAM for teacher eval into question. One study  "found that teachers’ one-year “effects” on student height were nearly as large as their effects upon reading and math." Correlation does not equal causation.

Can American students get smart? @BostonCollege Math Professor on #CCSS and #PARCC | Common Core State Standards in Education | Scoop.it
The latest international test scores of 15-year-olds are in, and the results are appalling. The Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, found that the United States — the most affluent country in the world — failed to rank in the top 20 in any category. In math — the subject most critical for careers in high-paying science, technology and engineering fields — slightly more than a quarter of U.S. students scored below baseline proficiency.

According to this author, "The keys to implementation are textbooks, teachers and testing. Getting any one of these wrong will leave our young people even further behind."

Could You Learn To Love Math? « Annie Murphy Paul

Could You Learn To Love Math? « Annie Murphy Paul | Common Core State Standards in Education | Scoop.it

"Over the three years Jordan Ellenberg was writing his book, he repeatedly encountered the same reaction to its subject. “I’d be at a party, and I’d tell someone what my book was about, and then I’d be like—‘Hey, where’d you go?’” What topic was so awful and off-putting as to make people flee at its mere mention? Math.

 

Ellenberg, a professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, has now published thatbook, How Not To Be Wrong, and rather than putting people off, it will make its readers want to stick around. Ellenberg tells engaging, even exciting stories about how “the problems we think about every day—problems of politics, of medicine, of commerce, of theology—are shot through with mathematics.” Understanding the role of math in these issues, he writes, “gives you access to insights accessible by no other means.”

 

Knowledge of math, Ellenberg enthuses, is like “a pair of X-ray specs that reveal hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of the world,” like “an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength.”"

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Common Core State Standards in Education | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.
