Nowhere do the CCSS “mandate” the percent of time ELA teachers need to spend on nonfiction.
In this post, we offer five suggestions for planning instruction that will align with the Common Core standards as well as help accomplish the instructional ideals espoused by the Common Core.
In 2010, most states in the United States (including Rhode Island) adopted the Common Core State Standards as the new standards. The two main portions of the Common Core Standards are the English...
Will geography be permanently pushed out of the curriculum with the adoption of the Common Core? How can a teacher bolster spatial thinking and geo-literacy within the Common Core framework? If you've asked yourself these questions, this resource is for you.
A set of guidelines adopted by 45 states this year may turn children into "little mathematicians" who don't know how to do actual math.
Mr. Gladwell’s tale provides a good lesson for English teachers across the country as they begin to implement the Common Core State Standards, a set of national benchmarks, adopted by nearly every state, for the skills public school students should master in language arts and mathematics in grades K-12.

What was once thought of as technological savvy has changed. We’re not talking software and hardware any more. While teachers, parents and students alike have technological experience, we have failed to make that knowledge really applicable to preparedness education. We must give our students, not only fun ways to learn, but the tools to succeed in the real world. Collaboration in the classroom is the optimal form of learning through the use of technology. Applying the use of technology to the CCSS in the area of English and Language, we find a great resource in the virtual classroom.
It is time for psychometricians, teachers, and students to get on the same track with the same unit of measurement (not motorcycles, bicycles, and tricycles). Psychometricians have been top dog, feared, secretive and their judgment unquestioned. Teachers have worked hard, but to my current knowledge, only in a case like Nebraska has their judgment made a meaningful improvement in test results. Students have been treated as inanimate commercial commodities.
Some friends are working on a paper on the topic of common standards and innovation. The primary question is how and whether the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will accelerate or slow innovation. The answer is that common standards are a big boon to innovation for four reasons.
Throughout the Common Core Standards, students are expected to find, evaluate, and integrate sources for informational text, and it is our job as educators to help students become actively involved in evaluating information and creating their own knowledge. But what are some ways to go about doing this?
This webinar will explore where to find sources that can help students learn to evaluate the information and sources they find. Not all sources of information are the same, and there are things students need to consider before using various sources. Join Melissa Edwards as she shares online resources that you and your students can use to find and evaluate sources of information and develop critical thinking skills.
Teachers don’t have unlimited time. One colleague, who really is an expert math teacher, tells me that her biggest problem with the standards is not so much their content as their requirement that she teach twice as much material to students who are struggling with the material she’s already trying to present. If conceptualizing every problem really helped students learn more math more quickly or more thoroughly, I’d applaud this approach. But I worry that in practice “discovery” will drive out drill without producing much more conceptual understanding.
