Common core: Dramatic changes in how special education is done!

Common core: Dramatic changes in how special education is done! | EducationICT | Scoop.it

There are going to be some dramatic changes between how special education (at least in my school and other schools I’ve worked in) is done now and how it will be done when the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is completely initiated.

Change.............embrace it!

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 24, 2015 4:44 PM

Common core state standards provide a foundation of which to build from. The accountability piece is what is important in all of these changes in the past few years. Do I like that up to 50% of my evaluation can be based on student achievement? Not really, but I do believe that numbers don't lie. Data will show what is working or not. If a particular curriculum or instructional practice is not working, any good teacher would want to make it better. It is extremely important for teachers to be able to explain what and why they are teaching a certain topic a certain way. It causes us them to evaluate what works best for our learners. A continuous cycle of improvement is needed and CCSS helps us to plan, do, check and adjust according to student's needs.

Reading Strategies that Transcend the Classroom 

Reading Strategies that Transcend the Classroom   | EducationICT | Scoop.it
If the classroom is truly the training ground for life, it only makes sense that we would use reading strategies that mimic the way we read outside of the classroom, doesn’t it?
