How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards | Get The Primary Core | Scoop.it
Heather Wolpert-Gawron writes: "Call me bass-ackwards, but I don't design projects around the Common Core Standards. I design projects based on what I believe are engaging topics that encourage my curriculum. Having said that, I don't neglect them either. In fact, by the end of my design process, I would say that I've become rather intimate with the series of standards I'm trying to hit." (emphasis added)

Heather's posts about PBL and/or Common Core are always worth reading! This is an article that should be shared throughout your school. 

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 8, 11:29 AM

Time for teachers to have a little time off and to put some planning time in on next year's projects. I like Heather's approach of finding engaging topics first, then incorporate the standards as they best work in.

Common Core, Critical Thinking and Aesop's Fables

Common Core, Critical Thinking and Aesop's Fables | Get The Primary Core | Scoop.it
Vincent Mastro writes: "Critical thinking is the means by which we objectively analyze the pros and cons of a situation in order to make informed decisions. It is a fundamental skill that is of such importance that many colleges and universities require their freshman students to complete an introductory course. The Common Core Standards also recognize the value of critical thinking, declaring it as one of the explicit skills children are to learn."

I think this would make a great middle school project, if students found current events that they could relate to an Aesop's fable.
