Ted Caron's comment, August 13, 2013 9:27 AM
I have to say that in looking through a few of these samples, it's unclear how students are utilizing textual evidence as a basis for their writing. This is THE hallmark of Common Core-oriented writing! Sure the students include facts and explanations, but, without some direct reference back to the text (quote or introductory statement like "As it says in the text...") or at least some idea of what text(s) the students are using to formulate the piece, how do we know that students' use of "facts" and "explanations" are not simply their own (based on prior knowledge or what the teacher mentioned in class?
Ted Caron's comment, August 13, 2013 9:35 AM
The "uniform prompts" included at the top of the page tend to be problematic for the reasons I previously mentioned. However, if you scroll down to the "curriculum-based" prompts, these tend to be much better! See Grade 4 "Best Friends" and Grade 5 "Letters from Rifka" for two samples that are more in line with what I would consider CCSS-aligned writing!

Our brain can do unconscious mathematics

Our brain can do unconscious mathematics | Education | Scoop.it

What is nine plus six, plus eight? You may not realise it, but you already know the answer. It seems that we unconsciously perform more complicated feats of reasoning than previously thought – including reading and basic mathematics.
