Sample ELA 9th Grade Units: To Kill a Mockingbird | Institute for Learning

Teachers need rich instructional tools.

 

To fill this need, the IFL has developed a set of model units K-12 in the four core content areas that illustrate how research-based content and pedagogical routines can transform instruction and raise student achievement.

 

These units suggest teaching progressions and routines that assure a focus on what specific content needs to be taught and how it should be learned.

 

Model units include suggested texts, tasks, and teaching routines and guidance, as well as supports for English language learners and students with disabilities.

What do the Common Core say about Digital Literacy?

What do the Common Core say about Digital Literacy? | Common Core State Standards SMUSD | Scoop.it
Earlier this week I happened to overhear a conversation about digital literacy and the Common Core.  The person asking the question was curious what exactly the Common Core Standards said about digital literacy.

 

Over the past few months while leading workshops on digital writing and the Common Core I have observed similar conversations with a variety of educators. The idea of digital literacy often stops at “my students don’t have access.”

 

"Technology alone is not the answer. To meet the needs of the Common Core Standards, we will have to focus our attention on powerful instructional practices that make strategic use of technology."

 

Digital Literacy Defined

 

Digital literacy actually is comprised of three components:

reading digital text writing digital text developing the technical skills necessary to consume and produce these texts. The Standards and Digital Literacy The concept of digital literacy appears throughout the Common Core Literacy standards. Six of the thirty-two anchor standards specifically call out the importance of digital reading and writing. Another area where digital literacy appears in the standards is in the portraits of career and college ready individuals. Out of nine portraits one specifically highlights the use of technology and digital media: They use technology and digital media strategically and capably. Students need to conduct effective online research; Students need to integrate both online and offline research into what they are learning; Students need to be familiar with the strengths and limitations of various technological tools and mediums and can select those best suited to their communication goals.
