Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 20, 2013 8:57 PM

In this post a middle school teacher shares a US history project where Common Core standards are aligned with the three Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Principles. 

She discusses the process of creating the lesson and states:
"UDL is not about causing change. It’s about looking for natural connections to what one is already doing that can help diversify instruction. It’s about raising our own awareness and turning up our reflective skills so we become accustomed to thinking about how lessons align with the needs of diverse learners."

Within the post she includes the Purpose of the Lesson, the Process, Assessment and a table where she provides the Common Core Standards that were addressed, the lesson activities, and the specific UDL Principles that were addressed.

If you are new to UDL here is a short explanation from the post:

"The aim of a UDL lesson is to create (1) resourceful, knowledgeable learners through multiple means of representation; (2) strategic, goal-directed learners through multiple means of engagement; and (3) purposeful, motivated learners as a result of multiple means of expression."

How Does Inquiry Mesh with the Common Core State Standards? Link 2 Literacy

How Does Inquiry Mesh with the Common Core State Standards? Link 2 Literacy | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Utah's English/Language Arts Core consisted of three strands: Reading, Writing, and Inquiry. With the adoption of the the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers may ask how inquiry fits into CCSS or how the CCSS incorporates inquiry into its objectives.

This engaging conversation in two parts with Wiggins makes me think. Is rigour really subjective? Is rigour not dependent on our design but determined by the solution and the student?

Missouri Education Watchdog: The Rise of the False Premise

Missouri Education Watchdog: The Rise of the False Premise | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Of course the false premise is that, to date, our public education system has not had an emphasis on, or valued, critical thinking. The implication is that we have taught blind adherence to facts presented on a page thus making our children little automatons who regurgitate back on the test exactly what they have been taught. Worse yet is the inference that critical thinking is a separate skill that can be taught and measured.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's one take on how Common Core defined critical thinking and an examination of the premises they base their reasoning upon.
