EngageNY's ELA curriculum is uncommonly engaging | The Thomas B. Fordham Institute

"EngageNY’s English language arts materials supply educators—both inside and outside New York State—an important alternative to traditional textbooks of questionable quality and alignment.


"After adopting the Common Core standards and receiving almost $700 million in the second round of Race to the Top in 2010, New York embarked on an ambitious (and unprecedented) effort to develop its own comprehensive, Common Core-aligned ELA and mathematics curricula. The process kicked off in early 2012, when the New York State Education Department (NYSED) issued an RFP to develop “modules of learning” aligned to the new standards. Common Core Inc. (now Great Minds), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit and curriculum developer, was contracted to develop math materials. The Core Knowledge Foundation, Expeditionary Learning, and the Public Consulting Group (PCG) were awarded contracts to develop ELA materials for grades pre-K–2, 3–5, and 6–12 respectively. (PCG later subcontracted the grades 6–8 portion of their contract to Expeditionary Learning and focused on materials for grades 9–12.) Today, EngageNY comprises a nearly complete set of curricular materials for math and ELA. Those materials are freely available online to anyone—not just Empire State educators—at EngageNY.org."

As an active reviewer of Common Core aligned curriculum (written by textbook publishers and other educational institutions), I can wholeheartedly agree with the Porter-Magee and Sears article. Although national publishers are becoming more aligned with the standards, the gaps that exist in their programs are more difficult to edit because of the sheer volume of materials and layers of bureaucracy. Content coming from Expeditionary Learning, Odell Education and others are quickly edited/revised when weaknesses are/were seen giving their products greater fidelity to the Common Core.

PARCC—The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career

 

The English/literacy assessments will ask students to:

read multiple related selectionsanalyze those readingswrite about the readingsanalyze in ways that have not been tested in the US before on large-scale assessments

 

"Students may have seen something like these in very good schools on teacher-made tests, but even that is probably unlikely unless students are fortunate enough to be in college preparatory classes."

How to Use Essential Questions in the Classroom

Think for a moment about the absolute “best” question that someone has ever asked you. As soon as it was posed to you, what happened? For some, it may have caused you to stop and really ponder what was being asked.

Tracee Orman's curator insight, August 5, 2014 12:28 AM

Last spring I compiled all my funny memes for teaching Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar into a Quicktime movie. Students loved it and it helped them understand the play. It prompted many discussions and allowed them to make so many connections to the text. Even my Shakespeare-hating reluctant readers got into it. Gotta love it when kids get excited about Shakespeare!
