How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards | Common Core Resources for ELA Teachers | 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.

Tracee Orman's insight:

Common Core Reading (Literature and Informational) mini-books for interactive notebooks (or used independently). This is a bundle of all five resources that can be used with any reading material: Plot analysis, Theme analysis, Story elements analysis, Figurative language analysis, and Vocabulary analysis. The books are about 6x5 inches and assemble very easily with staples (no glue needed). For teachers who do not follow the CCSS, these still practice the essential skills. You don't have to be a Core teacher to use.
