Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

To prepare for engaging students in the CCSS, this white paper has outlined five important things;  

 

 1.  Lead high-level, authentic discussions:  generating good questions is the beginning.  

2.  Focus on Process, Not Just Content

3. Create Assignments for Real Audiences 

and with Real Purpose

4. Teach Argument, Not Persuasion

5. Increase text complexity

 

In summary:  

 How are these five shifts happening in your classroom? What have you already been doing
well? What would you like to change? Adjusting your lessons to cover the standards will take time and work.
Stopping to ask yourself questions along the way can help you achieve success.

I believe that a tell-tale sign of a change initiative that has merit is one that quickly takes teacher conversation to the student motivation question.

 

Love this post.  Motivation, engagement and education are topics I am passionate about.  To impact our learners, we must understand what motivates them.  This understanding will certainly change how we do what we do in our classrooms.
