Great lesson to teach students how to multiply fractions. This multiple part lesson is perfect for grade 4 and 5 students as they learn to multiply fractions. Aligns with Common Core Standards for Math.
Now that the Common Core State Standards require students to make claims and support them with evidence, my students have to learn how to ask and answer more complex questions. This is challenging for both students and teachers.
Under the new common-core standards, educators are debating which literary texts should be taught in class, preparing for the rollout of new textbooks and readers, pushing literacy development across subject areas, and connecting reading and...
My name is Andy Harridge and I will be your student’s math teacher for this 2013-14 school year. During this school year, you will see many differences between my math class and what math class looked like when we were in school. These changes are due to the nationwide movement towards the Common Core State Standards...

Read Alouds have had an important place in education and the lives of our students since Jim Trelease published his first book about read alouds in 1982 (more information about his work here). Some other names that have been used to describe read alouds include:
Students cringe when teachers mention annotation because they know it’s time-consuming, detail-oriented, and just plain boring.
At least that’s their initial impression. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this reaction at the beginning of many school years, when introducing and requiring annotations on student reading assignments. And I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing those same students automatically and joyfully annotate by the end of the school year.
The Common Core places new emphasis on the importance of reading and analyzing complex nonfiction and informational texts. This has many English teachers feeling like their literature is under attack, but students fall in love with stories.
State K-12 and higher education representatives, content experts and classroom educators, used the feedback to revise and clarify the PLDs to make them more accessible for educators as well as provide linkages to the PARCC assessment blueprintsreleased at the end of April.
"Standards are not self-actualizing. Indeed, they can be purely symbolic, even illusory. Unless thoroughly implemented and properly assessed, they have scant traction in schools, classrooms, and the lives—and futures—of students."
The two consortia are not the standards. They have to so with assessments, the tests you give kids to see if their learning what those standards say. Oklahoma is exercising its right not to utilize PARCC’s assessment. Instead, the state will develop its own standardized test to be implemented in the 2014-15 school year.
Our goal with close reading is not just to pass a test, perform above a “cut score,” or read closely because the teacher said so. Sure, the current emphasis on close reading may be due to CCR Reading Anchor Standard 1 , but is that reallywhat we want for our children, grandchildren, and students?
