Don’t Throw out Baby Macbeth: Common Core says think bigger, better, and beyond the book | Roz Linder.com

The Common Core standards have suggested titles that they recommend based on reading levels. The only texts required actually are Shakespeare and American seminal documents. Yet article after article complain that literature is being dethroned. English classes should not be synonymous with Literature. Literature is a type of English class, just like Geography is a type of Social Studies class. English includes far more than Literature. Unfortunately in our high schools that has not been true.

Becoming a Sight Word Ninja in the Age of Common Core | Roz Linder.com

Are you drilling your students everyday on sight words? You use the flashcards, you painted the words on the wall of your classroom, you sent home the sight words in a little baggie? The classroom television plays that sight word PowerPoint each morning? You have an incentive chart on the wall to show how many words each student knows? You have sight word parties each month, but you just are not seeing the progress that you want? Maybe it time to stop these assessment rituals and shift to some solid reading practices that promote sight word knowledge.

Common Core State Standards Highlight the Use of Technology

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.

A Balanced Common Core State Standards Assessment OR Testing 101

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.

Helping to Meet Common Core: Finding, Evaluating, and Integrating Sources

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.

Another bite of pie . . . and common core math standards

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.
