Evidence? Read like a detective, write like an investigative reporter | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

"David Liben, who was involved in the creation of the Common Core and is now Senior Content Specialist at Student Achievement Partners, provides this simple explanation of evidence under the new standards: “It means asking children two questions:

‘What is your evidence?''How did you figure that out?’

 

The point is to ask students to answer not just based on their thoughts or opinions, but on evidence in the text.”

Do children with learning difficulties automatically receive extra help? Experiences often suggest otherwise. And we should be careful to resist any tendency to simplify complex realities into either/or polarities. Learning difficulties may co-exist with giftedness, and giftedness may be concealed behind poverty and other social and emotional roadblocks. Education systems and measures are not neutral. Were we to invest resources into enabling each child to blossom and grow, our future would be less dependent on nurturing the full potential of the relative few who meet the standard criteria and measures for giftedness.
