Rigorous, or Just Difficult?

Rigorous, or Just Difficult? | Common Core State Standards in Missouri | Scoop.it

Deb Gardner's curator insight, April 14, 2013 6:02 AM

Getting our students "to and through" college depends on how they are prepared. CCSS protagonists cite the standards as more rigorous, fewer, clearer and deeper in their definition of what students should know and be able to do. Will implementation of CCSS challenge students in higher level, critical thinking? Which assignment in this blog most most reflects CCSS and how could it be "beefed up" to extend thinking and expectations?

Math Teachers Focus on Common Core not STEM

Math Teachers Focus on Common Core not STEM | Common Core State Standards in Missouri | Scoop.it
More than 7,500 math educators are gathered in Denver this week for the annual conference of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

 

"One thing that struck me is that if the common core is the star attraction of this NCTM meeting, gauging by the guide, STEM education most decidedly is not."

CCSS news literacy lessons teach students how to find fact amid fiction

CCSS news literacy lessons teach students how to find fact amid fiction | Common Core State Standards in Missouri | Scoop.it
Such efforts are on the rise as education standards push critical thinking and nonfiction reading.

 

Forty-five states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core, which requires nonfiction to comprise 70 percent of what a student reads by senior year.

 

Principals and teachers say lessons from news literacy extend beyond teaching students about journalism.

Solid information on why digital story telling is a great tool that aligns with several anchor standards.  (But please, let's move past elementary school fonts when presenting to our peers! My eyes can't take it.)
