Using Essential Questions to Fuel Learning

Using Essential Questions to Fuel Learning | ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS) | Scoop.it
Help students uncover knowledgeInstead of teaching scripted curriculum defined by a textbook, consider putting your teaching skills and expertise to good use during the instructional planning phase by using essential questions to fuel the learning. Essential questions require students to construct knowledge and when combined with a flexible lesson design this type of learning can allow students to express learning in original ways. There is no room for answers that simply require copying and pasting, and worksheets become obsolete.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:40 AM

Essential Questions

  1. First take a look at the content you will be covering.
  2. Use Bloom’s as a guide to develop complex questions that require students to use higher order thinking skills to answer.
  3. Take a look at the Common Core Standards and identify several standards that can be woven into the learning process.
  4. Design a grading rubric for use as a guide to define expectations for students as they create a final original project to demonstrate learning. This will ensure that the student driven learning experience hits the targeted instruction and includes those Common Core Standards.
  5. Remember to make sure to dedicate an adequate amount of instructional time for students to answer complex Essential Questions."

Why Should Close Reading Be Advantaged?

Why Should Close Reading Be Advantaged? | ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS) | Scoop.it

Tim Shanahan on Literacy

 

"I hope all of our students will gain the power inherent in being able to give a text a close read, by the time they leave high school. College is the place to ply the scholars’ trade and to develop a philosophical lens through which to interpret. Being close readers will give them a strong basis on which to gain access to these more sophisticated and expensive tools."

School leaders may not be reading teachers, but we do need to understand different types of reading--scholastic, post-structuralist, and close reading.

Wow! Don't know how to respond when teachers say "It's not MY job" regarding literacy skills? Need a professional, well thought out answer to why taking higher levels of math in high school helps achievement in general? It's in here-- and so is everything else you wanted to know about Common Core.

Rufus Hannah's curator insight, October 5, 2013 3:29 PM

We are piloting Common Core resources with elementary students at my school. We are realizing the challenges of working without textbooks - how much teachers need to know about lesson design along with assessment for and of learning.

"With the rise of new trends such as a flipped classroom and whole brain teaching, there is an emphasis on getting students more actively involved in learning in the classroom. And whether or not you choose to fully embrace either of these methods, we can all agree that we want students participating as much as possible."

Why is the Common Core Such a Big Change? | ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS) | Scoop.it

"Teachers are not only expected to change what they teach but how they teach it.  Students must have conceptual understanding and know how to apply the mathematics in addition to having procedural skill and fluency.  Children will be expected to articulate their mathematical understandings orally and in writing."

Principals Leading in the Common Core Era

Principals Leading in the Common Core Era | ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS) | Scoop.it

Despite its great promise, the Common Core is unlikely to be the "game changer" our policymakers hope it will be unless sensitive and skillful leadership is provided to shepherd the profound changes necessary. Undoubtedly, that leadership will have to come from principals who must take the lead in helping teachers and students meet the challenge of elevated expectations.

 

The challenge for principals goes far beyond managing building and personnel effectively.

Leveled vs. Complex Text: "A balance is needed."

Leveled vs. Complex Text: "A balance is needed." | ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS) | Scoop.it

In my own teaching practice, I felt that if I coaxed a non-reader to pick up a magazine or graphic novel or just about anything, I was succeeding. I tried to get them to fall in love with reading and learning by allowing them time to read whatever they wanted. I still believe offering such choices is important, but I have now come to understand that a balance is needed.
