It would be interesting to find out what Derrida might conclude in using his concept differance which was not a correctly spelled word.

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards | Techno classrooms | Scoop.it

by Heather Wolpert-Gawron

description by MiddleWeb SmartBrief

 

"When designing project-based lessons, educators should focus first on what excites them -- the content -- and then seek ways to apply the Common Core State Standards, writes middle-grades educator Heather Wolpert-Gawron. In this blog post, she describes her planning process for a project based on superheroes. Her first draft naturally addressed many standards and she later added components to teach others."
