"Teaching Channel has partnered with Achieve.org on a three-part series featuring tools for Common Core lesson planning. The series highlights Achieve’s work with EQuIP (Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products), an initiative designed to identify high-quality materials aligned to the Common Core.

In these first three videos, we introduce you to a tool already used by over 15,000 teachers across the country to help them plan and evaluate lessons aligned to the Common Core: the EQuIP Rubric.

Introducing Close Reading Strategies to Your Students

Introducing Close Reading Strategies to Your Students | Common Core Support | Scoop.it

Powerpoint has two approaches for close reading.  I love the way the second was initially designed for artwork.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, August 16, 2014 3:23 PM

Close reading is nothing new. As a matter of fact, close reading began with New Criticism of the 1950s. Close reading was the not the name of the approach readers were taught by which to approach text; that nomenclature has come upon us since the publication and adoption of the Common Core. If you were a student of English in the 60s through the late 70s and early 80s, you were probably doing close reading because that was how teachers of the era were taught to break down texts in the process of analysis. Seems new to many, but that is only because reading made a U-turn somewhere in the 1980s towards whole language and responsive reading and away from analytical, academic reading.

Technology can be a powerful tool to help us meet the Common Core Standards and move our students forward to prepare them for success in school and beyond. Although there are specific Common Core standards dedicated to using technology, an instructional shift calls for the seamless integration of technology into the curriculum.

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, September 15, 2013 9:29 AM

While the examples are for secondary teachers, elementary teachers will also benefit from using these tech tools to teach literacy.

 

I do wonder, however, how long QR codes will last as a tech tool in our world. They grew to mainstream for a while and have fallen to the background.  In the classroom, students must be using a mobile device to access the code. The cool factor is one thing, and a basic link on a digital file accomplishes the same objective across mobile devices and desktop computers.
