Common Core learning curve

Common Core learning curve | Common Core State Standards: Resources for School Leaders | Scoop.it
If a sentence contains the phrases "New York state" and "Common Core," chances are that somewhere between the two is the word "botched." New York and California have taken opposite approaches to implementing the new academic standards, which have been adopted by 45 states but are now the target of a backlash. California's approach bucked the Obama administration's rules, but as it turns out, California was right.
Mel Riddile's insight:
Schools need the time to build robust new teaching methods with all the right supports in place.

Vocabulary Instruction: What's in a Word?

Vocabulary Instruction: What's in a Word? | Common Core State Standards: Resources for School Leaders | Scoop.it
What’s In a Word? On Vocabulary Instruction

by Kathleen Stern


As a middle school reading teacher, I constantly find myself thinking, “If my students knew the meaning of more words, they would be better readers.” I am not alone in this sentiment. Many teachers ask themselves and one another, “How can we help our students learn more words, increase their reading volume and improve their comprehension?” There are only 24 hours in a day and students get one to two hours of ELA instruction at best.


I have tried to strike a balance with vocabulary and chip away at my concerns.

PARCC Field Tests in Mass. - Resources

PARCC Field Tests in Mass. - Resources | Common Core State Standards: Resources for School Leaders | Scoop.it

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a multi-state consortium working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. These new K-12 assessments will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students' progress toward this goal beginning in grade 3, and provide teachers with timely information to inform instruction and provide student support. The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the 2014-15 school year.

PARCC states have committed to building a K-12 assessment system that:

  • Builds a pathway to college and career readiness for all students,
  • Creates high-quality assessments that measure the full range of the Common Core State Standards,
  • Supports educators in the classroom,
  • Makes better use of technology in assessments, and
  • Advances accountability at all levels.

Massachusetts has assumed a significant leadership role in the design and development of the PARCC Assessments.

The Salinas Union High School District is one of the few in Monterey County already implementing the Common Core Standards, a new set of goals intended to prepare students for college and career as they move through 12 years of education. Rather than focusing on how much students learn, the Common Core Standards focus on how well they learn it.

All schools in the district are implementing Common Core in math and English, said Dan Burns, associate superintendent of instructional services, although there's still much to do.

"Students who are college and career ready employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. They tailor their searches online to acquire useful information efficiently, and they integrate what they learn using technology with what they learn offline. They are familiar with the strengths and limitations of various technological tools and mediums and can select and use those best suited to their communication goals.”
