Kindergarten teachers use collaboration, research to teach Common Core standards

Kindergarten teachers use collaboration, research to teach Common Core standards | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it

“As kindergarten teachers, we collaborate together often as well,” Keller said. “There’s a lot of sharing ideas, taping notes to each other’s keyboards and talking. I think that’s the best part of my job. Working together with other teachers is powerful.”


Erdmann agrees that collaboration is an important aspect of teaching Common Core standards.


“The biggest thing we have going is that we have fostered PLC’s (professional learning communities) as a way for colleagues to work together,” she said. “It’s a way to help them share the load. We try to provide as much support as they need.”

Collaborative Learning is Essential to Common Core State Standards

Collaborative Learning is Essential to Common Core State Standards | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it
Facilitating collaborative learning is challenging, but our teachers are making great efforts to do this. It requires deep planning and thought. It’s much easier to just dispense information but young people (and older people, too) have little patience for constant lecture.

We are about to step into 2013 and a world filled with change and challenge. If we focus on instruction that helps our children work together, they will have the tools to improve our world. If we retreat from the requirements of Common Core State Standards and their emphasis on teaching collaboratively, we will leave our children a legacy of decline.

Using Google Drive for Online Discussions of Primary Sources

Using Google Drive for Online Discussions of Primary Sources | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it

One of my favorite ways to use the commenting feature in Google Documents is to host online discussions around a shared article. Doing this isn’t a radical departure from having a classroom discussion about an article that you’ve printed and distributed to your students, but there are some advantages to hosting your discussion in Google Documents. The first advantage is that your students can participate in the discussion from anywhere at any time they are connected to the Internet. Students absent from your classroom can still participate and can read others’ comments. The second advantage is that your students can have a digital archive of the ideas shared by you and their classmates.

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it
While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.
Deb Gardner's insight:

Both relevant AND timely.  ScoopIt! is quickly becoming a popular tool to aggregrate, filter, summarize and publish information to multiple social media platforms.  This would be an EXCELLENTextended activity for a class to take on. Meets many ISTE and CCSS standards with content standards playing supporting roles. 


I like the guide Bill Ferriter's students provide regarding curation.  Think I'd spin it a little and use a concept mapping app (Inspiration or Poplett) to diagram the decisions that go into content curation to further amplify the process behind the guidance.  Also a concept map could focus on different branches of curation (evaluating content, evaluating source credibility, etc.)
